Teddy Hart has commented on his recent arrest and gave his side of the story as to what happened.
On February 12, it was revealed that Hart was booked on three charges of possession, possession of a Schedule III controlled substance and possession with intent to sell and distribute and incarcerated at the Richmond City Jail in Richmond, Virginia.
Hart and Maria Manic posted a video where it began with a recorded phone call from Hart still in jail. In the video, which can be seen below, Hart revealed that he left to get some marijuana for Manic after a recent ROH show in Baltimore that she competed in as Hart said she was not feeling well.
Later, Hart would go on to admit that he was pulled over because of an issue with the car's license plate not matching up with the registration. The car was then searched where marijuana and steroids were found.
"I left her in the hotel so I can pick up some weed. When I went to go pick up some weed, I guess my license plate, which we have already knew had someone else's name on it. I tried to explain to the officer that it's already been taken care of. The officer said there's nothing he could do about it and searched the car and needed to impound the car because the car came up as not mine and the registration [didn't match] the license... While they were searching the car, they found some steroids, and they found some weed. Those are both charges and now I'm sitting in jail waiting," Hart said.
Hart would go on to ask his fans for patience and understanding of the situation that he is in. Hart adds that he hopes to have this situation resolved soon and be able to wrestle.
The 40-year-old, whose real name is Edward Ellsworth Annis, recently was released by Major League Wrestling in late 2019. Hart held the company's Middleweight Championship, but dropped it to Myron Reed in November. Hart was also a part of the New Era Hart Foundation alongside Davey Boy Smith Jr. and Brian Pillman Jr.
