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.

I watched this guy grow up. What a great young man he was. Steriod abuse, alcohol, stalking former girlfriends? What has happened to this guy? You have gone from hero to zero! Straighten up before you die or kill someone else! Use the tools you used as a kid to make yourself a champion.

i live in grand forks nd where he was arrested and none of us really know who he was let alone law enforcement and in grand forks they really crack down on drunk drivers even if your a passenger u can get cited, they probably did a sobriety test because it was a gorgeous nite and there clearly wasnt any ice.

Second time this douche bag has been arrested for suspicion of drunk driving in the last 2 years. You know why he's smiling in his mug shot? Because, unfortunately, he's probably going to skate and get out of it again.

@teenyboppersuk, you totally missed the fact that he was parked in a median, NOT a parking lot. The reason you're probably calling them "stupid cops" is because you're more than likely guilty of being behind the wheel when you shouldn't be. Kurt is totally in the wrong here, whether he was in the process of driving or not. Most people know that merely being intoxicated behind the wheel of a car, whether the car is in motion or not, is an offense you can be arrested for. Very easy to get around this. If you are truly trying to do the right thing and stay off the roads when intoxicated:

1) Get out of the median moron!
2) Remove the keys from your vehicle (meaning you should sit them outside your vehicle somewhere) and take a snoozer in the backseat. If you are approached by an officer in a vehicle and they try to charge you with suspicion of DUI, should be fairly easy to refute since most cop cars these days are equipped with dash cams (some even have rear dash cams). There will be video evidence that your keys weren't in the ignition at the time of the arrest.

Moral of the story? Kurt Angle knows better! Get your stuff together and quit making stupid mistakes!
