Just saw this at PWI:
http://www.pwinsider.com/article/44115/jeff-hardy-charges-going-forward-hardy-indicted.html?p=1
Jeff Hardy's drug arrest went to the grand jury yesterday in Moore County of North Carolina. The grand jury found that there was enough evidence in indict Hardy and the case has been sent to Superior Court, according to a spokesperson with the Moore County Court in NC.

Hardy's case will be officially set on their docket within the next week.

Hardy was set for a probable cause hearing on 1/27 in regard to his September 2009 drug arrest. That hearing would have determined whether there was enough evidence regarding the arrest to go on the grand jury, but is not a hearing that is absolutely required. It appears that prosecutors opted to forgo that hearing and go right to the grand jury in order to move the case along.

Hardy was arrested on 9/11/09 on the following charges:

*Felony possession of cocaine.

*Felony drug trafficking of opium

*Felony possession with intent to redistribute a Schedule III drug (two counts).

*Maintaining a dwelling for drug use and/or distribution.

*Possession of drug paraphernalia. (misdemeanor)

Jeff Hardy returned to TNA at last night's Impact special.

Thanks for making such an iMPACT last night, Jeff! Time to trade in the neon for stripes and change his nickname from the enigma to Naylz?

This makes Jeff Hardy's apperence on TNA last night all the more baffling and makes all parties look like boneheads. I hope the one-time ratings boost was worth it.

In defense, being indicted does not mean that he was found guilty.

Granted I don't really know much about the case but it's not as if he was on his way to jail when he signed.

I agree in 'innocent until proven guilty'. It's just that if I was him, I'm better off clearing all of this before getting back into the ring. If I'm TNA, I don't take someone with a record of flaking out who has legal troubles just for a extra pop, especially when that pop is nullified and forgotten when Emperor Hogan is on (at least in their minds).

But besides all of that, I thought he left the WWE, a nice contract extension, and a possibly long title reign because he was 'burned out' on the wrestling industry. So why come back within months to deal with all the stress all over again?

Not to be too cynical, but how many Wellness Strikes did he have? Two if I am not mistaken. If he got a third he was going to be out anyway. This way, assuming TNA does not have a solid testing policy, he can continue to do what he loves professionally with what he loves recreationally and not be fired.



You know, I really don't know what to put here. Close your eyes and thank of something funny!

I agree with you there. I think it would be much better to focus on your personal life - or even healthy before tackling something else. Granted I don't know anything about the case besides what was posted in the OP, though!

It was a gamble, yes, but perhaps the lighter schedule will allow him to work on those problems though - I'm just an eternal optimist, though!

Apparently, at least from what I read on the Torch (which I won't link to in order to save all of you from seventeen thousand pop-ups related to Acaii berry weight loss scams), it was the schedule that was the ultimate deal-breaker. He is at a point where he just isn't interested in a full-time WWE schedule anymore. So I understand for his perspective, but I still don't see how TNA justified this hiring. This is a worse decision on their part than keeping the belt on Angle on practically the eve of his domestic violence charge. Of which he was eventually exonerated, we should point out of course.

Worst case scenario, what is Jeff looking at as far as jail time? Anybody know? I seem to remember reading North Carolina is hardcore on drug offenses.

Meltzer says "Hardy had a verbal agreement for a return date with WWE, so his appearance last night on Impact was a big surprise. Vince was no-selling it today. Hardy is believed to have signed a short-term contract, though no word on how short."

Interesting. I agree that TNA at this point -- especially if the "verbal agreement" part is accurate -- is a weird career move for him.

TNA might figure that they've had good luck so far with squeaking out of legal problems (like Angle) and they might as well take those risks that WWE steers clear of. They've been lucky so far, but it's got to bite them in the ass sooner or later.

So exactly which part of TNA patiently waiting out the legal process in lieu of hotshotting their world title was bad?

It certainly made them look callous in the short-term. Call it hot-shotting if you want, it wouldn't have been that difficult to do the title switch and tell Kurt his belt and spot would be waiting for him once things are resolved.

I also believe in "innocent until proven guilty" but given Jeff Hardy's track record and the current charges against him, I think it will be very difficult for Jeff Hardy to climb out of this hole.

It really is a shame of what has happened because it seemed Jeff Hardy was at the peak of his career but because of his habits and troubles, his career may never have the same success again (even if he gets out of this situation sooner than some may expect).

I wonder how true that is around the country. I've seen a bunch of the Virginia indys and they do seem descendant of the Crockett style. But in MD, which I guess would be a historic WWF territory, I don't see it as much. (disclaimer:
