Update On Jeff Hardy's Jail Time

CARTHAGE - Professional wrestling star Jeff Hardy was sentenced today to 10 days in jail, 30 months of probation and a $100,000 fine as part of a plea deal that will keep him out of prison.

Hardy, 34, who lives in the 200 block of Boys Camp Road in Cameron, pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver a controlled substance and a single count of conspiracy to traffic in a substance containing opium, all felonies.

Hardy was arrested Sept. 11, 2009, in a raid on his home and charged with several felony drug counts including trafficking in opium by possession, possession of cocaine, maintaining a dwelling for keeping and selling controlled substances, and two counts of possession with intent to sell a controlled substance.

As a result of the plea deal, prosecutors dropped the other charges but said he must remain in a dug abuse treatment program.

Assistant District Attorney Warren McSweeney said the raid came after employees at a Fayetteville FedEx distribution center called police about a suspicious package. The package was addressed to Hardy from a fan in Florida. It contained a Maxwell House coffee can filled with 262 prescription hydrocodone pain killers.

Police resealed the package and had the pills delivered to Hardy at his home. When he accepted the package, Moore County sheriff's deputies raided the house and found other drugs, as well.

Hardy's lawyer, James Van Camp of Pinehurst, said Hardy got involved with the pills to cope with the pain and damage to his body that he endured as a professional wrestler.

Until recently, Hardy was the top star of Impact Wrestling, formerly Total Nonstop Action wrestling.

Hardy remains on the company's roster, and Van Camp asked Superior Court Judge Joseph Turner to allow his client to travel outside of North Carolina and the country to continue his work.

Turner granted the request.

Update On The WWE Network

Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

WWE reportedly announced the new WWE Network early in-part because they were concerned that UFC would announce plans to start their own network first. Ever since UFC signed with FOX, they've lost all interest in doing their own channel. While WWE usually acts like UFC isn't competition publicly, word is that Vince McMahon isn't happy with several recent UFC moves including their plan to run a 100,000 seat stadium in Brazil next year

Press Release: Kurt Angle's Lawyer Issues Statement On Kurt's Arrest

Reported Angle Breath Test Inadmissible Under Virginia Law
~Field Test Not Calibrated and Inherently Flawed for Court Use~

Front Royal, Virginia— Attorney C. Todd Gilbert who represents Olympian and professional wrestler Kurt Angle issued the following statement today to clarify erroneous media reports about the evidence against Mr. Angle following his arrest Saturday night.

Mr. Gilbert stated, "A local newspaper reported today that my client’s percentage of blood alcohol at the scene of his arrest Saturday night was 091. What the media failed to report is that the handheld field test unit used for this test is so inherently unreliable and the protocols for its use so flawed that these results are inadmissible as evidence under Virginia law.

The results which will be admissible in court, and which vindicate my client, showed that his actual blood alcohol content was a .06, well below the legal limit of .08. The breath testing machine used to determine this accurate .06 level is one that passes the rigorous scientific standards set forth by the Virginia Department of Forensic Science. This testing unit is also subject to equally meticulous written protocols and pre-test calibrations for its use. One such protocol is a 20 minute waiting period to ensure that any residual alcohol present in the mouth will have evaporated prior to testing and will therefore not cause a false positive or a result that is higher that one’s actual blood alcohol content. The handheld breath testing unit used by state troopers in this case is merely a tool to assist police in determining probable cause, but its results are inexact which is why they are inadmissible in court. For example, no such 20 minute waiting period is performed by officers in the field prior to its use. As such, the report today is both incomplete and misleading.

Mr. Angle continues to look forward to having the scientifically valid results of his actual blood alcohol content presented in court in order to clear him of this charge."

Interesting Win/Loss Statistics For John Cena And Jinder Mahal

According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Jinder Mahal lost his first TV match on this past Monday's RAW when he teamed with The Great Khali to face Evan Bourne and Kofi Kingston. Before that and with the exception of a SmackDown battle royal, Mahal had won his first 26 matches.

If John Cena loses to Alberto Del Rio at Night of Champions, it will be the first time Cena has lost on three straight WWE pay-per-view events since the Summer of 2008 when he lost to Triple H, JBL and Batista at three straight events. This year, Cena has lost twice in a row to CM Punk at SummerSlam and Money in the Bank.
