Kurt Angle

HUGE Break in DWI Case

10/5/2011 12:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kurt Angle DUI
He may have been reckless ... but wrestling champ Kurt Angle will not be prosecuted for drunk driving stemming from a September arrest in Warren County, Virgina.

TMZ has learned ... prosecutors have reviewed the case, and have agreed to reduce the charge to misdemeanor reckless driving.

We're guessing they finally caught a glimpse of the police report, which showed Angle's blood alcohol level measured in at .06 on the night he was arrested ... which is under the legal limit in VA, .08.

If convicted, Angle still faces up to 12 months behind bars and up to $2,500 in fines.

Be sure: WHEN Mr. Angle is fully focused, he is -arguably- the GREATEST in-ring performer, in the history of The Business. His upcoming match at "Bound for Glory" with
Canadian sensation Bobby Roode, has the potential for LEGENDARY status.

For "reckless driving"?!? That doesn't sound right. Driving 20 mph over the speed limit is "reckless driving".
