OH, I also forgot to mention after 3 DUIs in VA, your license is suspended indefinitely. DUI 3 is considered a compound felony in Virginia, so you'll have that ugly sob on your record forever... It can never be expunged. After 3 years, you may petition for a restricted license. After 5 years, you can try for your full license. Neither are guaranteed... Word to the wise in VA, never,,,, ever, ever drink and drive. Not only for the obvious reasons, such as the fact you could hurt or kill someone. They will in some way, shape, or form take a decade off of your life..... Quite literally..... I'm glad I don't drink.lol

Geez, the exact same way he was busted last time. Kurt was doing so good staying away from the law. Now he's going to tell everyone the story is false and he's squeaky clean.

Krystal, I met Kurt too and he's a sweetheart. Well, he used to be. At the time we met he just had his first with Karen and he was trying to get into my panties. Classy.

Why are so many celebrities drinking and driving? I don't know a soul who would do that. My friends won't even have one drink if they're driving. If I can afford a cab why can't these people? Just so stupid.

Too bad he's not a big celebrity like Linds. She never gets in trouble for her DUI's. He must be one of the little people.

Oh geez. And watch TNA give Kurt a slap on the wrist. Matt Hardy gets fired, but when Kurt does it, it's perfectly fine!

TNA Wrestling sure knows who to hire. First Kurt Angle, then Jeff Hardy, then Matt Hardy, and Kurt Angle again. Kurt you have a problem, seek help.

A gifted and incredibly disciplined athlete. We have been watching his come undone for a couple of years now. In typically brilliant fashion, Vince McMahon dumped his ass a couple of years ago. His writers even scripted a 'I want to spend more time with my family' BS exodus for him, so it would appear more believable. He will not live long....Sad because he is a decent man.
