A Moore County grand jury has indicted professional wrestler Jeff Hardy on drug charges stemming from a search of his home in Cameron in September.

The indictments were handed up Monday.

Hardy, a former WWE and TNT wrestler, was indicted on charges of trafficking in opium, two counts of possession with intent to sell and deliver a controlled substance, maintaining a place for a controlled substance, and a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia, according to court records.

The Cameron native was arrested Sept. 11 in his home at 265 Boys Camp Road.

During the search, Moore County sheriff's deputies seized about 262 Vicodin prescription pills, 180 Soma prescription pills, 55 milliliters of anabolic steroids, a residual amount of powder cocaine and items of drug paraphernalia.

Soma is a noncontrolled prescription, according to a Sheriff's Office news release. Vicodin and anabolic steroids are schedule III controlled substances. The drugs' street value was estimated at $2,500.

Before the indictments, Hardy was scheduled to appear in District Court on Jan. 27. His case will be moved to Superior Court and no court date has been set.

Hardy, 32, and his older brother Matt have worked as professional wrestlers separately and together for many years. The duo, known as the Hardy Boyz, were six-time World Wrestling Entertainment world tag-team champions.

Hardy was suspended by the WWE in 2008 for a second violation of its substance abuse and drug testing policy. He was later reinstated and won the WWE's world heavyweight championship belt last summer, then lost it in August. He left the WWE after that.

He continues to be part of the wrestling world and appeared on "TNA Live!" on Spike TV on Monday.

I wonder how long before TNA gives him the boot for a failed drug test. It also seemed aweful strange and his showing  up Impact the night Hulk Hogan makes his Impact Zone debut.

hmmmm...makes one wonder if that was the reason he "retired" from the WWE. It's really a shame that stars with so much potiental and talent, be it wrestling or just a movie star, do drugs and run their lives and careers into the ground. The entertainment industry has lost way to many to drugs and alcohol. It's just sad. I hope he gets the help he needs and gets his life back on track before he ends up like so many before him.
