WWE U.S. Champion Jeff Hardy pleaded guilty to driving while impaired charges stemming from his March arrest in North Carolina. Hardy’s license was suspended for 120 days during a Cabarrus County hearing on Monday. He will also be required to complete an assessment and treatment class, and he has 120 days to perform 48 hours of community service. Read more at WBTV.com.
Powell’s POV: Hardy is scheduled to face Shinsuke Nakamura on Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown television show just a day after his hearing. There’s no indication yet as to what type of effect his guilty plea could have when it comes to traveling outside the U.S. to countries such as Canada, which is known for being tough when it comes to allowing foreigners with DWI arrests into the country. Oh, and with the guilty plea, Hardy will not be eligible to play in Vince McMahon’s XFL (not that he was actually going to).
