Newly-signed TNA wrestler Jeff Hardy has been formally accused of a criminal offense related to his drug-possession arrest in September. A grand jury in North Carolina decided on Monday there was enough evidence to send Hardy's case to Superior Court, according to a report by PWInsider.com.

Hardy is faced with six different charges contained in three separate felony and misdemeanor cases after his arrest on September 11. Hardy's cases have moved to the Superior Court where Hardy will await a potential trial date.

Hardy was originally scheduled for a "probable cause" hearing on January 27, but his cases were removed from the docket yesterday after prosecutors were able to provide enough evidence to indict Hardy on the charges.

Caldwell's Analysis: That explains why Hardy's court cases were removed from the North Carolina Court System yesterday, which we first reported. It wasn't clear initially why the cases were removed from the January 27 court session, but a new date has not been announced yet for when Hardy's case will move to the Superior Court for a formal hearing. The following is a list of charges Hardy is faced with.

Case 1 - Felony drug trafficking, Two felony charges of possession of a Schedule III controlled substance or drug. ... Case 2 - Felony possession of cocaine, Felony maintaining a dwelling for redistribution of controlled substances. ... Case 3 - Misdemeanor Possession of drug paraphernalia.

The following is a recent timeline of events related to Hardy's current legal situation.

-- Sept. 11: Hardy arrested at his home in North Carolina, charged with six felony and misdemeanor drug-related offenses, and released back to his home.

-- Sept. 30: First scheduled court appearance postponed to November 4.

-- Nov. 4: Second scheduled court appearance postponed to December 2.

-- Dec. 1: WWE releases "Jeff Hardy-themed DVD" while charges are still pending.

-- Dec. 2: Third scheduled court appearance postponed to January 27.

-- Jan. 4: Grand Jury formally charges Hardy with criminal activity. Hardy returns to TNA and debuts on TNA Impact.
