CM Punk is gonna have a field day with this

Hardy, shortly after his arrest.

A little over a week after he walked away from an unprecedented offer from World Wrestling Entertainment, multiple WWE champion Jeff Hardy, 32, was arrested on multiple charges of prescription-drug trafficking and possession of cocaine and anabolic steroids, reports the Southern Pines, N.C.-based  Pilot:

Hardy, of 265 Boys Camp Road, Cameron, was arrested after a search of his residence yielded 262 Vicodin prescription pills, 180 Soma prescription pills, 555 milliliters of anabolic steroids, a residual amount of powder cocaine and items of drug paraphernalia, according to a press release. A joint investigation conducted by officers with the Moore County Sheriffs Office narcotics and select enforcement units and the Fayetteville Police Department led to the arrest.

 Despite being one of the best performers in the industry the last five years, Hardy’s struggles with drugs and alcohol have been well-documented, so much in fact that WWE Creative weaved his personal life into a program with CM Punk, who preaches a “straight-edge” lifestyle. Hardy, fresh off a run as World champion, informed WWE months ago of his desire to take time off to heal some injuries, play with his band and pursue a reality TV show. WWE reportedly did everything they could to persuade him to stay, putting the belt back on him and offering a deal that would see him work only TV tapings and PPVs until he was ready to return full time on the road. Vince McMahon & Co. have to be relieved that Hardy declined to accept, under the circumstances. If these charges hold up, it’s going to be tough for the company to risk taking a chance on him again, as in the past Hardy has repeatedly refused to enter rehab, even at the expense of his job.

Ah, but not to worry: Hardy has already tweeted his defense on Twitter: “A lot of exaggerations are out there today, don’t believe everything you read 4 it is not true, I am at home and fine-thanks for your concern.” Don’t know about you, but that certainly eases my mind; I’m sure it’s all one big misunderstanding. What a waste of talent…and life.

    I can”t wait for the conspiracy theories of how WWE tipped off the cops because they were upset with him leaving

    He”s getting trafficking charges thrown at him but I seriously doubt he”s distributing anything. Personal use? For Jeff Hardy, I”d say that”s about right. The charges they are putting him up for make it sound like he”s John DeLorean. What”s the deal with the roids though? I have no idea how much 555ml is, as far as dosing is concerned. Anyone out there that could explain just how much steroids that is? And if he is roiding, he needs to take more because they aren”t working very well. The guy is like 200lbs dripping wet.

    I have to admit, the first thing I wondered was who it was who threw him under the bus in order to get the cops to go out into the middle of the carolina mud to search his place.

    I seriously doubt the dude was roiding up to get ripped. Roid will help heal your body alot fast and get you back into action than just rehab alone. Hardy probaby is beat all to hell considering his wrestling style. Not condoning what he did at all but the roids I understand with his schedule. Now all the other stuff, jeez!!! Like Bowden said “what a waste of talent”.
