What's the story?

Breaking news coming out of Jeff Hardy, a.k.a. "Brother Nero", has been arrested for public intoxication in South Carolina this afternoon.

In case you didn't know...

Jeff Hardy has been out of action for quite some time nursing some injuries, most notably a knee injury. Before the injury, he reunited with his brother Matt Hardy on the SmackDown Live Brand. The brothers were in the hunt for the SmackDown Live Tag Team titles before Jeff was sidelined with the knee injury.

He underwent extensive knee surgery and was in the recovery process. Jeff has had a past of issues with alcohol and drug abuse that has been well documented. Jeff Hardy was taken in just a year ago in North Carolina for a D.W.I. after being involved in a car accident. His breathalyzer test allegedly came back at a 0.25 above the legal limit.

The heart of the matter...

Jeff Hardy was reportedly arrested for public intoxication and impairment on Saturday afternoon in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
