The following is an article from Kevin Kellam of Examiner.com:

TNA World Champion Jeff Hardy was in North Carolina courtroom yesterday, defending himself once again against a group of drug charges stemming from a September 2009 arrest.

In a press release from last year by the Moore County Sheriff’s Office, it states officers found a 262 Vicodin prescription pills, 180 Soma prescription pills, 555 milliliters of anabolic steroids, a residual amount of powder cocaine and items of drug paraphernalia when doing a search of Hardy’s home. The specific charges currently against Hardy include conspiracy to traffic in Opium, trafficking in Opium by possession, two counts of possession with Intent to Distribute, felony possession of cocaine, felony maintaining a controlled substance in a vehicle/dwelling/place and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Yesterday, the Moore County Superior Court continued the trial to January 20th. This is not the first time Hardy has received a delay in the case. There is no clear date on when Hardy could face a verdict.

The negative speculation around Jeff Hardy continues to grow with these drug charges still pending, a recent video where he appears disoriented and insults WWE superstar CM Punk, and a recent story where Hardy was almost stripped of the TNA World title on the day of a Pay Per View event. Compounding this recent negative press is the well known history that Hardy has had with substance abuse in the past.
