Jeff Hardy, the former World Heavyweight champion who left WWE on best of terms two weeks ago, was arrested today and busted for possession of anabolic steroids and controlled prescription pills according to ThePilot.com.

The Moore Count Sheriff's Office for narcotics and the Fayetteville Police Department raided the Hardy house at 265 Boys Camp Road, Cameron and found 262 Vicodin prescription pills, 180 Soma prescription pills, 555 milliliters of anabolic steroids, a residual amount of powder cocaine and items of drug paraphernalia.

He 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 according to the website.

His bail was set at $125,000.

Hardy has a history of substance abuse and was already on strike two with WWE's Wellness Program. A "changed" Jeff Hardy made his way to the WWE a few years ago, staying focused and being on his best behaviour which led him to three heavyweight title runs.
