Matt Hardy must be going through a tough time as his younger brother has been arrested once again. He finally broke his silence and spoke about the predicament that the Hardys are facing at the moment.
“It was disheartening to hear the news about my brother yesterday,” Matt tweeted. “Recovery isn’t a linear process & I’ll continue doing whatever I can to help my brother be healthy. Being healthy & well is the most important thing for Jeff, his wife, his children & our family at this time.”
The former WWE Superstar received a cash bond of $3500 – $500 for the license charges, and $2500 for the DUI. Hardy had been arrested previously in 2009, 2010, 2011, and twice in 2019.
