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.

He does know that there are mouthwashes out there that don't have alcohol in them, doesn't he? If he used one of them, he wouldn't be in jail.

But, since I'm sure he knows that, he must have been gargling with single malt.

A pro wrestling career sure messes a lot of guys up. Must be a tough business.

Once these Pro Wrestlers loose there fame, its only a matter of time before they die at a very young age. I'am 45 and most of the wrestlers i watched in the 80's & 90's are DEAD,

They do not allow mouthwash with alcohol in rehab, that's why his lie didn't fool anyone and they kicked him out.

Met him    

This is really sad. I met him in Cleveland about 8 years ago at a Starbucks. I had NO IDEA who he was or that he was famous at all. SUPER NICE GUY, very polite, very courteous and I was very impressed once I was told was a famous Pro Wrestler. I really hope he gets his life back together. He just seemed like a nice guy that any girl would be proud to take home to meet her parents. What a shame that his life has gone this way. I hope his next stay in rehab is more successful.

Abysmal     

What's more sad is that Jeff Hardy has cleaned up his act and he's suppose to be the super drug addict in the family.
