More trouble for ex-WWE champ Matt Hardy -- the 36-year-old was arrested for driving under the influence in North Carolina this week ... the second time in the last couple of weeks.

According to the arrest report obtained by TMZ ... cops received a complaint of a "possible drunk driver" late Monday afternoon ... who almost "hit two drivers three separate times."

When the cop spotted Hardy, the wrestler's car, "swerved into the curb and then back onto the road."

Once Hardy was pulled over, the officer claims Hardy "had slow and slurred speech, sleepy eyes and a very lackadaisical demeanor."

According to the report, Hardy took the walk-the-line test -- but "after taking two steps, Mr. Hardy lost his balance and failed to stay on the line."

Hardy took a breathalyzer -- but when the results showed he wasn't drunk ... cops called in a "Drug Recognition Officer" to perform even more tests.

Eventually, cops believed Hardy was under the influence of something ... and arrested him on the spot.

Hardy is scheduled to appear in court on November 30.

Damn, usually wrestlers die instantly and epically - why is he dragging this out so long? Shouldn't he be working on an elaborate suicide scheme involving workout equipment, rather than out cruising?

Sad, very sad. I've seen some of the videos he's shot lately and they disturb me. I hope he gets whatever help he needs before something tragic happens. Wrestling seems to be a soul stealing business in additon to the physical trauma. Way to many of them die way before their time.

What a total waste of life this loser is....thank god he didnt kill someone. He needs to be locked up ASAP....dont give him the rehab cop-out. A ex-coworker of mine was arrested after her 3rd DUI and has been in jail for the past 2 years and still has another year to serve. he should get the same treatment!

I agree, it's only a matter of time until we read "Matt Hardy found dead...." He thinks people are stupid enough to believe his excuses, very Clinton-esque "it depends on what you're definition of IS is." He always talked a big game but never lived up to it, now that's catching up with him.

BTW, TMZ he was NEVER WWE champ.

"Ex-WWE Champ". Not to be a total mark, but Matt Hardy was never the WWE Champ. The article should also read "Ex-TNA wrestler," since that's his last place of employment. His ties with WWE are long since severed.
