Kurt Angle is a GREAT guy inside and outside or wrestling! We all make mistakes - no one is perfect and some people are prone to being caught more than others. Kurt will get thru this and pay his dues like he has in the past and move on. Dont down the guy - he is a human being.

Matt Hardy had other issues,and his arrest was the final straw. I'm pretty sure Kurt will be put on some kind of probation with TNA as well as that title belt leaving his hands very soon!

Wow! Route 66 is right down the street, depends on what part on 66 he got busted. Route 66 starts at Route 81 and runs into D.C.

He won a gold medal for America at the Olympics in wrestling. He is an American hero. They will take that into account and then they will let him off the hook because he is a famous and rich celebrity who can afford the best lawyers, whereas a regular person who cannot afford a top quality lawyer would be found guilty and thrown in jail for the same thing. Long live the system of justice for the rich and prison for the middle class and the poor! Hooray!
