WWE wrestler Jeff Hardy has been arrested for "driving while impaired" after he allegedly crashed his auto into a guiderail. Hardy's license has been suspended, and his first court date is now set for April 16th.
The report says the vehicle caused an estimated $5,000 (£3,602) in damages to the guardrail, which was owned by the North Carolina Department of Transportation, and around $8,000 (£5,764) worth of damage to his 2016 Cadillac CTS-V. It is unknown if he suffered any injuries.
WWE have finally spoken up about the incident and have released a statement about Hardy's arrest.
Jeff Hardy has been out of action for several months after undergoing surgery to fix a torn rotator cuff, but Hardy has been making headlines due to the fact that he was arrested over the weekend.

The other Big 12 schools in the tournament are: Kansas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Kansas State, West Virginia and Texas. Questioning Arizona State's participation in the tournament a mere three months ago would have been scoffed at.
The legendary high-flyer had received medical clearance from his surgeon to get back into the ring.
He was forced to go under the knife after suffering a torn rotator cuff and labrum in October.
"Jeff Hardy is responsible for his own personal actions". However, it's not known if Jeff made an appearance, or the likelihood of him being edited out by WWE if so.
According to the arrest records, Hardy was arrested at 10:39 pm by the Concord Police Department after he was involved in a traffic crash that occurred around 8:11 pm on Concord Parkway. It remains to be seen whether WWE has plans for Jeff at WrestleMania, expects to bring him back after the year's biggest show, or will react one way or another to this latest development.
