Kurt Angle

I Was NOT Drunk

Kurt Angle apparently believes he's been FRAMED in connection with his drunk driving arrest Sunday morning ... this according to sources connected with the famous wrestler.

As TMZ first reported, Angle was popped in Virginia after he was allegedly seen driving erratically on I-66.

But Angle's lawyer tells TMZ ... his client passed a breathalyzer test.  The lawyer tells us, "We understand Kurt will be entering a plea of not guilty in response to any infractions and/or offenses."

Sources connected with Kurt tell TMZ ... cops are just trying to make an example of him.

The cops are mum, saying the case will be tried in court. 

FYI ... someone who is not legally drunk (i.e., someone who passes a breathalyzer test) can still be arrested for driving under the influence if drugs or alcohol -- even minimal amounts -- impair the driver's ability to navigate the road.

That poor soul is a total *****.up. If you're a betting person get a few bucks on him on a celebrity death watch. I don't think it's going to be soon but it will happen. Hedge your bets.

"Passing" a breathalyzer doesn't mean squat. It doesn't mean he wasn't drunk AT ALL and thus not driving erratically. If you can't keep your stuff together on the road, you're gonna get pulled over. And playing victim that cops everywhere are all picking on you is ridiculous.

Few of these "HIGHWAY TERRORISTS" if ever plead Guilty!.As far as "Grabbing Cash", fines are split up with D.W.I. programs ,Alcohol and Drug avoidance funding.The REAL money grabbers are the Lawyers, er Liars who state they are Mr. D.W.I., "The D.W.I. Guy", The Super Lawyers", We want to be your "Friends for life" who espouse they will get you off a D.W.I., Well I can do the same, and for FREE!, Just dont drink and Operate a motor vehicle while INTOXICATED, see no charge, just follow the advice.
