Pro wrestler indicted on drug charges
CARTHAGE — A North Carolina jury has indicted a professional wrestler on several drug-related charges.
The Fayetteville Observer reported Saturday that a Moore County grand jury returned the indictments for drug trafficking and possession with intent to sell against Jeff Hardy on Jan. 4
Hardy was arrested in September at his Carthage home. Authorities say they found hundreds of Vicodin pills, anabolic steroids and powder cocaine.
Hardy was suspended by World Wrestling Entertainment in 2008 for a second violation of drug policy.
He was later reinstated, won the WWE’s world heavyweight championship belt last summer, then left the league after losing his title in August.
