Hardy made it all seem like he was doing this for his own good out of free will, but the fact of the matter is that his rehab stay was ordered by the court because of his previous run-ins with the law.
TMZ is reporting that Hardy was kicked out of his court-appointed rehab program because he failed a breathalyzer test for alcohol.
So much for the straight and narrow.
Some of the details on the situation have come to light over the past day thanks to TMZ:
We're told the staff at the rehab got suspicious of Hardy's behavior on Friday and gave him a breathalyzer test on the spot ... which he failed. According to our sources, Hardy was adamant he wasn't drinking ... and said he only failed because he had "just used mouthwash."
Not only was Hardy kicked out of rehab, he was promptly arrested as he returned to North Carolina after his expulsion from the rehab center.
Matt Hardy has tried to play off the fans' emotions since jump street with his addiction, and I bet within a week that he is out of prison he will have another YouTube video about how he was framed again.
That is, if he does get out of prison anytime soon.
With a previous judge ordering a $1 million bail if he gets dismissed from the court-ordered rehab for misbehavior, there may be no escaping the rock bottom that Hardy needs to hit hard.
If Matt Hardy doesn’t turn it around now, he will never have a chance to resurrect his wrestling career.
