Kurt Angle Arrested

for Being Drunk in a Car

3/25/2011 6:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Wrestling superstar Kurt Angle was arrested early this morning in North Dakota  ... TMZ has learned.

Kurt Angle Arrested
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... highway patrol in Grand Forks found Angle sitting in his car in the median separating lanes.  We're told Angle told cops he had hit an icy patch in the road.  During the conversation, cops say they smelled alcohol on Angle's breath.  He failed a field sobriety test and was arrested.

Since cops didn't see Angle driving, he was arrested and later charged with being in control of a motor vehicle while intoxicated -- which basically means he was allegedly drunk behind the wheel but not actually driving.

@Tammy:

There is nothing I love more than when someone tries to correct someone's grammar, only to make mistakes themselves.

Kurt is a Wrestling Machine, so what he had a drink or 2 He was parked he wasn't driving he was arrested 2 years ago for driving drunk but this time he was in his car not driving tho but In Jeff Hardy's case there is no hope for him he has lost his mind.

Kurt will never stop the drinking and drugs. Most people gave up on him several years ago.

Rob(4:30), is your brain leaking? Did you even read the article? He was parked in the median of the road and reaked of booze. He failed a field sobriety test. His car didn't just magically end up in the median, he had to have been driving it. Thank goodness, as he hit a patch a icy road he didn't hurt or kill anyone because of his careless actions. I, for one am glad that he was arrested. Hopefully he'll learn from this mistake. One can only hope he does.

This is bull! Why should this guy get a ticket for sitting in a car if the pig-, er, cops couldn't prove it was him? It's not against the law to be inebriated.

Rastus, you obviously didn't read the article. You, too must be a drunk driver, why else would you defend his actions? He was effin' driving, he even admitted that to the officers. He hit an icy patch in the road and ended up in the MEDIAN. He clearly WAS driving, and driving under the influence. He deserved to get arrested.

Karissa, you aren't too bright, I can tell by your comment. I can only hope that you're never involved in a "social drunk" driving accident.
