Report: Wrestler gets 10 days in jail for drug rap

Professional wrestling star Jeff Hardy will spend 10 days in jail after pleading guilty to drug charges in a Moore County court.

The Fayetteville Observer reports ( http://bit.ly/qtRFgY) that Hardy will also pay a $100,000 fine and remain on probation for 30 months as part of the plea agreement.

The 34-year-old Cameron resident was arrested in 2009 and charged with multiple felony drug counts. Authorities say they found hundreds of Vicodin pills, anabolic steroids and powder cocaine.

Hardy was suspended by World Wrestling Entertainment in 2008 for a second violation of drug policy. He was later reinstated and won the world heavyweight championship. Until recently, he was one of the top stars in the Impact Wrestling company.

His attorney did not immediately return a call from The Associated Press seeking comment.
