Grand Jury Indicts Pro Wrestler
The Moore County grand jury on Moday indicted professional wrestler Jeff Hardy on several drug charges related to a search of his Cameron home last September.
Moore County sheriff's deputies arrested Hardy after the September search of his residence on Camp Easter Road turned up 262 Vicodin prescription pills, 180 Soma prescription pills, 555 milliliters of anabolic steroids, a residual amount of powder cocaine and items of drug paraphernalia.
At the time, Hardy was charged with felony trafficking in opium, two counts of felony possession with intent to sell or deliver a schedule III controlled substance, felony maintaining a dwelling to keep controlled substance, felony possession of cocaine and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
A December probable cause hearing for Hardy, a native of Cameron, was delayed until Jan. 27, but prosecutors decided to bypass that and move forward with seeking grand jury indictments. His case will now be calendared for trial in Superior Court. A date has yet to be set.
Hardy, 32, and his brother, Matt, wrestling as the Hardy Boyz, were six-time World Wrestling Entertainment World Tag Team Champions. Individually, Jeff Hardy held the WWE World Champion belt at one time and the World Heavyweight Championship twice.
