Last June, Jeff Hardy was arrested for Driving while his License was Canceled/Suspended/Revoked, Driving Under the Influence within 10 years, and Driving Violation of Driver’s License Restriction in Volusia County, Florida. He was then released from jail after paying a $3,500 bond. Hardy was scheduled to appear in court several times, but each time his hearing was postponed.
The attorney of Jeff Hardy filed a motion on February 21st to suppress the breath test results as unreliable. The attorney argued about the following.
“Mr. Hardy’s breath tests did not comply with FDLE’s requirements established in FDLE’s administrative rules to ensure reliable quantitative breath tests.
There is insufficient probative evidence that the breath tests in Mr. Hardy’s case were performed substantially in accordance with methods approved by FDLE and with a compliant machine approved by FDLE.
For the above reasons, this Court should enter an order excluding any evidence of a breath test and breath test results obtained in this case.”
Jeff Hardy signed a written plea of no contest on February 23rd to all three charges.
Here’s the final court decision.
- A 38-day county jail sentence with 38 days credit for time served.
- 24 months in probation.
- $4000 in fines and $586 in court fees.
- Hardy’s license has been suspended for 10 years.
- Two years with an interlock device and 90-day vehicle impoundment.
- Court-mandated DUI school or drug rehab program.
- Community service.
