Wrestling Star Matt Hardy

KICKED OUT of Rehab

Arrested After Failed Booze Test

11/19/2011 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Matt Hardy Mug ShotFormer wrestling champ Matt Hardy was kicked out of court-ordered rehab today for failing a breathalyzer test ... this according to multiple sources.

Earlier this year, Hardy was ordered to go to rehab by the court after a string of run-ins with the law. 

We're told the staff at the rehab got suspicious of Hardy's behavior on Friday and gave him a breathalyzer test on the spot ... which he failed. According to our sources, Hardy was adamant he wasn't drinking ... and said he only failed because he had "just used mouthwash." 

The staff wasn't convinced and gave Hardy the old heave-ho from the facility.

Back in September, the Moore County DA said if Hardy didn't comply with the treatment, he would be put in jail on a million dollar bond. We're told Hardy still had about a month to go before he was through.

Q    

Couldnt be reached for comment because he's out drinking...guaranteed. He's one of those they call in A.A. "such unfortunates" who never seem to get it. Faced with Prison, and a chance to clean up his act, and he chooses to drink while in rehab?...he'll find his bottom probably 2 seconds before he crashes a car into a tree--then it will be 2 seconds of "I'll change, I prom"...BANG..END. About all you can do for this type is to pray they find that bottom before the crash.

Hope his lawyers use the "Lindsay Lohan" case to keep him out jail, even her father didn't go to prison, so why should this dude?

It appears as though Hardy's self-inflicted Twist of Fate has had a vintage Side Effect, ladies and gentlemen.

They are locking up Matt Hardy?!?! YES!!! Happy days are here again. Rehab doesn't even kick out Scott Hall. That's how bad Matt Hardy is.

Matt Hardy HAD a life many younger men would give anything for.
A court can make you go to rehab, but unless the person wants to stop and change there life and get off the drugs/drinking they are NOT gonna stop. The court is not gonna make Matt Hardy change,until Matt himself wants to better himself and his life.
The judge should of given that bed in rehab to someone who would welcome the help..Sounds like Matt is still in huge denial.
Yo Matt, You USE to be a champion and now your a addict..

If Lindsay Lohan didn't have to do time, and she does more drugs and booze in a day than Matt does in a year. Then Matt shouldn't have to serve any time.

This guy, and his brother! are in a downward spiral and I can honestly predict that they will either be dead or homeless five years from now. They need to get their lives together.

Idiots at the rehab center are obviously unaware that, relapse is part of recovery!

Sad that some people can't keep it together. He was on top of the world and threw it all away. Yesterday's has been. I used to like watching his tag team matches they were among the best. What a shame.
