Jeff Hardy will be back in court on 5 August after his arraignment, initially scheduled for 5 July, was postponed.

This is per PWInsider. There is currently no word on why the 5 July hearing did not take place.

The AEW wrestler was arrested on his third DUI charge in 10 years on 13 June. The incident took place at 9:54 AM, according to the police report, with Hardy pulled over in Volusia County, Florida. Two blood-alcohol tests were registered at 0.294 and 0.291, which is 3.7 times the legal limit of 0.08 in the state.

"Defendant, Jeffrey Nero Hardy, pursuant to rules 3.160(a), Florida Rules of Criminal Procedure, waives arraignment by filing this written plea of not guilty. Albritton v. White, 948 So. 2d 852, 854 (Fla. 2d DCA 2007). Defendant further waives the right to be present at all pretrial conferences" so it would appear the scheduled 7/5 arraignment hearing would not take place as initially scheduled."

AEW founder and CEO Tony Khan has confirmed that Hardy is currently undergoing a treatment program. He will not be permitted to return to the promotion until this has been completed.
