(TMZ SPORTS) – Professional wrestling star Jeff Hardy, 44, faces a Driving Under the Influence charge after being arrested in Volusia County Monday morning, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
According to law enforcement officials, Hardy had a Blood Alchohol Content of .294 following his arrest early Monday morning.
Under Florida law, Driving Under the Influence (DUI) is unlawful blood alcohol or breath alcohol level of .08 or above.
In police documents, obtained by TMZ Sports, officers say they pulled over Hardy after claiming he was driving a white Dodge Charger erratically on Volusia County highways.
Police said they received four separate calls regarding the Charger’s “poor driving pattern,” and when they finally caught up to Hardy’s vehicle, it was “traveling significantly under the speed limit, weaving across travel lanes, and running off the shoulder of the roadway.”
Law enforcement officials said during the stop, Hardy appeared to “be in a stupor and confused.”
Officers say when they finally got Hardy out of his vehicle, he reeked of booze, and, during field sobriety tests, displayed multiple signs of being impaired.
Law enforcement officials arrested him on the scene, and say when they took him back to the station, two of his breath samples yielded BAC readings of .294 and .291.
Cops also noted in the docs Hardy’s license was suspended following his two previous convictions for driving under the influence. They also noted he “had a driving restriction which required him to have an interlock device in his vehicle,” which they said his Charger did not have.
