Jeff Hardy was filmed having a drink from a glass and laughing 12 hours before he was taken in by police for drink driving on Florida highways.
Hardy, 44, was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol in a white Dodge Charger in Volusia County around 9am on Monday morning.
“Whiskey is my best friend and my worst enemy,” Hardy stated in a video recorded before the incident.
Authorities who apprehended him administered two breathalyser tests, both of which showed he was over the legal limit in Florida.
The wrestler was arrested and placed into jail in Volusia County on the aforementioned allegations. He will be required to pay a fine of 3,500 dollars.
He puts his participation in Triplemania Tijuana, which will be held on June 18 at Estadio Caliente, in jeopardy.
A repeated problem
The fighter has been arrested for offences relating to substance misuse while driving for the third time in the last four years.
The wrestler can be seen in a video shared by TMZ singing for several people inside what seems to be a conference room during a wrestling convention in Orlando.
“Whiskey is my best buddy and my worst enemy!” Hardy said as he took a big swig of a drink while debating the lyrics to a song.
Along with his brother Matt, Jeff Hardy made his mark in the WWE as a member of The Jinx Bros.
