Jeff Hardy has maintained a low profile since resolving his DUI case in late February — but now the suspended AEW star has finally resurfaced after his most recent legal troubles, chatting up a wrestling fan, and even posing for a pic.
A fan posted a photo of him and Hardy in Oak Island, NC, … with the caption, “Met @JEFFHARDYBRAND while vacationing today. Could not have been more generous and likable. He just had eye surgery, get well soon!”
We talked to the fan who told us Hardy told him he recently had eye surgery … and you can see what looks like a scar under his right eye.
The fan told us he didn’t want to ask too many questions, as Hardy was with his family.
You’ll recall … Hardy submitted a written no-contest plea for the DUI he got last summer — meaning he accepted a conviction and punishment for the crime but didn’t admit guilt.
Hardy — one-half of the famed Hardy Boyz tag team — was sentenced to two years probation, court-mandated DUI school or drug rehab program and community service.
Jeff — who reportedly had his license suspended for ten years by the judge — will have to wear an interlock device for two years and pay $4,586 in fines and court fees.
Jeff’s brother, Matt Hardy, provided an update on Jeff last month … saying Jeff did an extensive rehabilitation stint and he wants to use his story to help others.
