Yes, the Jeff Hardy case has been postponed again

The drug case against TNA star Jeff Hardy in Moore County, N.C., was continued yet again, but this time there was a new twist to the same old story.

Hardy’s lawyer asked a judge for time to have a drug treatment assessment done on his client, North Carolina’s thepilot.com reported.

According to the story, an administrator for the sentencing services program has become involved in Hardy’s case just recently and will need time to assess whether he needs drug dependency therapy, get another opinion from an expert and recommend a treatment plan.

A hearing has been set for June 27.

Hardy was arrested in September 2009 after Moore County deputies raided his home. He was charged with trafficking in opium, two counts of possession with intent to sell or deliver a controlled substance, maintaining a dwelling to keep a controlled substance, possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

This Jeff Hardy mess is worse that a Vince Russo booking.

I think this Jeff Hardy mess IS a Vince Russo booking...

Guess who's Elimination Chamber matches are on WWE On Demand.

I hope he gets the help he needs. Or he'll end up like Jake The Snake

I think the judge might be raw's anonymous general manager.

I just added the Zack Ryder invisible jump rope to my blow away diet. You should do the same Kevin.

I met Jeff and Umaga at a burger place in Panama City, FL. It was the only time I've ever met a "famous" person in real life in my 28 years. He took a couple pictures with me and the friends I was with. I don't know how many celebrities are cool like that with fans, but at least one--Jeff Hardy--seemed cool with being bothered while trying to order lunch. It was especially cool for me because I used to love watching him in WWF/E... especially during the TLC matches.

Now, Umaga's dead and Jeff's drug problems are eating away at what could have been one of the most impressive careers in wrestling history. Please, Jeff, if you see this, give up the drugs. Not for the fans, not for wrestling, not for your career, but for your life.
