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.

People need to realize that DUI laws are insane and out of control. Sure there are PROBLEM drinkers that drink a lot and drive with a BAC over 0.15. But for social drinkers that are under that BAC... it is NOT drunk driving! This is a moeny grab. MADD needs to close its doors. They have done enough. True stats show there are a 1000 things that the government should take more seriously that is a Cause of Death. You are more likely to die of an aspirin overdose than getting hit by a drunk driver. You are more likely to win the State Lottery than get hit by an intoxicated driver.

Kurt's one of the greatest American heroes in the history of the world. It's true, it damn true.

@ Karissa, STFU. You wouldn't be spewing that BS if you're family was somehow the victim of a drunk driver. Idiot.

You're missing commas after your adjectives and how you start your second sentence is incorrect grammar. Furthermore, your last word in the second sentence is not the best way to end a sentence. I would suggest/recoomend:

Tammy must work for TNA Wrestling because only a dumb, ignorant, moronic and stupid bi*ch would make such a comment.
