According to the report, police received four calls about Jeff’s Dodge Charger driving “erratically” along the Volusia County highway. When the police caught up to Hardy’s car, it was driving “significantly” under the speed limit.
It was also running off the shoulder of the highway and weaving across lanes. In addition, when Jeff was stopped, he seemed to be confused and in a stupor.
The 44-year-old AEW superstar displayed numerous signs of being drunk and smelled badly of alcohol. The report notes that Hardy’s license was suspended due to his last DUI convictions.
