WWE's Jeff Hardy has been arrested for being 'drunk in public'

WWE wrestler Jeff Hardy, 41, has been arrested for being drunk in public.

The incident took place in South Carolina on Saturday where he was booked by Myrtle Beach Police Department for public intoxication and impairment.

The wrestler, who is a part of the Hardy Boyz on WWE SmackDown, is currently on a career break because of a leg injury.

It's not known what prompted authorities to be called, but the wrestler was not kept behind bars for long, and was released with a $200 bond, TMZ reports, on Saturday afternoon.

WWE released the following statement about the incident:

"Jeff Hardy is responsible for his own personal actions."

This is not the first time that intoxication has led to Hardy's arrest. He was caught drink driving when he crashed his car in North Carolina last year. A police report obtained by TMZ revealed that he was three times above the legal limit and admitted to driving under the influence.

WWE released a similar statement saying that the wrestler was responsible for his own actions.
