Wrestler Kurt Angle fighting mad over Virginia DUI arrest




Wrestling superstar Kurt Angle wound up in the pokey on Sunday over what Virginia state police are calling a DUI, but the WWE and TNA legend says is a setup. He does realize the show ends outside the squared circle, right?

State troopers arrested Angle very early Sunday after another driver turned him in for swerving between lanes on I-66, tossing him in the Warren County Jail on DUI charges before he was released on $2,000 bond at 3:31 a.m., TMZ reports. Angle's problem is he believes he was framed and wasn't drunk when he was pulled over; he even says he passed a Breathalyzer test.

"We understand Kurt will be entering a plea of not guilty in response to any infractions and/or offenses," Angle's lawyer told the site. Maybe the lawyer should point out to Kurt that DUI can mean you're impaired by some sort of intoxicant or drug, regardless of whether you're over any sort of legal limit.
