Matt Hardy put out the following statement on Twitter, commenting on his brothers arrest.
Since so many have asked me about my brother tonight-I love my brother & want him to be happy & healthy. I’ve expressed that to him as much as I can. Jeff has to make his decisions about his life.— The VESSEL of Matt Hardy (@MATTHARDYBRAND) October 5, 2019
I have to focus on my 2 boys & soon to arrive son. I can only control MY actions.
Jeff has been out of action since April due to a leg injury. It is unknown when he will return to WWE TV.
The former WWE Champion was previously arrested on March 10, 2018, for driving while impaired following a traffic accident in Concord, North Carolina. He was arrested again on July 13, 2019, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for public intoxication. Hardy's legal battles date back to 2009 when he was arrested on charges of trafficking in controlled prescription pills and possession of anabolic steroids. He served ten days in jail in 2011 after pleading guilty to the charges.
