The case in which the state and professional wrestler, Jeff Hardy, has been accused has been delayed until Feb. 16 after Assistant District Attorney Warren McSweeney said Senior Resident Judge James M. Webb that the State requires more time.
This is the second postponement of the case this year. Hardy’s lawyer noted that he believed the two sides were close to an agreement when he informed the court that he expected a decision this month.
Moore County deputy sheriffs arrested the world champion wrestler in September 2009 after a search of his home in Cameron discovered quantities of illegal drugs, including prescription Vicodin and Soma, a quantity of anabolic steroids, along with a small amount of cocaine and drug paraphernalia.
At the time, Hardy was charged with felony trafficking in opium, two counts of felony possession with intent to sell or deliver a schedule III controlled substance, felony maintaining a dwelling to keep controlled substance, felony possession of cocaine and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. The Moore County grand jury later indicted Hardy.
The cases against Hardy have been continued a number of times. Hardy has remained free on bail pending his day in court.
Jeff Hardy, 32, and his brother, Matt, wrestling as the Hardy Boyz, were World Wrestling Entertainment World Tag Team Champions on six occassions.
