Another idiot that doesn't know enough to hire a cab. They need harsher punishment for drinking and driving!

Ahh, Kurt "I've-got-a-prescription-for-those-'roids" Angle's yearly DUI case. This is his third? Fourth? Who cares... he'll be back for more next year.

Are we sure this is Kurt Angle??? It doesn't really look like him, unless he's lost weight.

Luck grants Angle a DWI once again without harming another person. It's hypocritical of TNA to just sit back and look the other way. cough*Matt Hardy*Cough.....Kurt's on probation and this is a serious violation. If an average joe were in this situation he'd be looking at jail time.

The Commonwealth of Virginia is actually pretty tough on DUIs... Well, I guess it depends on how much money you have at your disposal for lawyers and the like... I believe for DUI 2 in Virginia, the mandatory minimum sentence is 30 days in jail... I know for DUI 3 in Virginia, the sentencing guidelines are 6 months to 5 years..... 6 months bare minimum. They will not provide you with bond either... You will stay until all of your hearings are done, and your time is served. And they charge you a dollar a day to stay in jail, which you're responsible for after you get out. They also use the inmates for free labor, but that's everywhere. Jail is just a business... But I agree, DUIs are stupid... Obviously... Glad I don't even drink.;)
