“It was disheartening to hear the news about my brother yesterday,” Matt Hardy wrote. “Recovery isn’t a linear process & I’ll continue doing whatever I can to help my brother be healthy. Being healthy & well is the most important thing for Jeff, his wife, his children & our family at this time.”

Jeff Hardy was arrested in Florida on Monday morning for DUI and reportedly had an alcohol level of nearly four times the legal limit in his system. This is Hardy’s third DUI in the last 1o years.
