Matt Hardy posted a message on his Twitter page regarding the recent drug-related arrest of his brother Jeff Hardy. Matt said the following: “Thanks (for) the overwhelming support guys, and I mean overwhelming,” Matt wrote. “Can’t wait until the facts are able to come out. God bless u all, God bless us.”
Lance Storm posted a new blog Friday on his website, www.stormwrestling.com, his thoughts on the arrest of Jeff Hardy. “The first thing I want to say is that people need to remember that being charged with something and being guilty of something, can be two different things. I’ve gotten email from fans that were both crushed and appalled to read that Jeff Hardy was dealing drugs.
“Let me just say, I don’t believe for a second Jeff Hardy was selling drugs and I’m pretty sure that any trafficking charges are based solely on the quantity of drugs found, not him actually selling them. I believe in the US there are limits on the amount of certain drugs you can have in your possession, and as soon as those limits are reached the charge is trafficking, because they feel you have more of the substance than would normally be considered for personal use.
“If that is the case that certainly does not put Jeff free and clear, but I think having your own personal drug problems (no matter how severe) and being a drug trafficker are two completely different things. If the quantities of drugs, reportedly found in Jeff’s possession, are accurate then we have to assume he has a very serious drug problem, and that, even more so than his pending legal woes, is my biggest concern.”
