Chris Jericho and Lance Storm Comment on Jeff Hardy’s Arrest

Nick Paglino

Chris Jericho has posted the following on his Twitter account: "Don’t think of judging Jeff Hardy until you’ve walked a mile in his shoes. I will always have Jeff’s back."

Former WWE star Lance Storm has posted a new blog concerning the Jeff Hardy arrest over at StormWrestling.com. Storm says the following about the situation: "The first thing I want to say is that people need to remember that being charged with something and being guilty of something, can be two different things. I’ve gotten email from fans that were both crushed and appalled to read that Jeff Hardy was dealing drugs."

"Let me just say, I don’t believe for a second Jeff Hardy was selling drugs and I’m pretty sure that any trafficking charges are based solely on the quantity of drugs found, not him actually selling them. I believe in the US there are limits on the amount of certain drugs you can have in your possession, and as soon as those limits are reached the charge is trafficking, because they feel you have more of the substance than would normally be considered for personal use."

"If that is the case that certainly does not put Jeff free and clear, but I think having your own personal drug problems (no matter how severe) and being a drug trafficker are two completely different things. If the quantities of drugs, reportedly found in Jeff’s possession, are accurate then we have to assume he has a very serious drug problem, and that, even more so than his pending legal woes, is my biggest concern."
