Kurt Angle Arrested for DUI

Wrestling superstar Kurt Angle was arrested early Sunday morning on charges that he was driving under the influence of alcohol. A driver spotted Angle’s car swerving in and out of lanes on Interstate 66 in Virginia. That same driver informed Virginia State Troopers who responded and took Kurt Angle into custody.

Angle was transported to Warren County Jail and booked. He later posted a $2,000 bond and was released at 3:31 a.m.

Kurt Angle won the gold medal at the 1996 Olympics for wrestling. He then joined the WWE in 1999 as a star wrestler until 2006 when he was suspended for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs and for an addiction to pain pills (he had become addicted following an injury).

He was released from his WWE contract and he worked to get his life together. He seemed to be back on the right track, joining Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling and shaking free from his addiction demons.

Lately, it appears Angle’s old problems have resurfaced. This recent DUI arrest is his second in six months (he is currently on probation from the first violation).

Since his release on Sunday, Angle has claimed that he is being framed. His lawyers claim that Angle passed a breathalyzer test and said, “We understand Kurt will be entering a plea of not guilty in response to any infractions and/or offenses.”

Other sources went on to say that Angle believes the cops are just trying to make an example out of him. The police are not commenting on the matter saying that the case will be tried in court.

Although Angle may have passed the breathalyzer test, it is still possible for someone who passes a breathalyzer test to be arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol if the court can prove that the driver’s ability to drive was impaired.

It sounds like Kurt Angle and his DUI attorney are ready to fight the DUI charge.
