Kurt Angle

Popped for DWI Again

Checking into Rehab

TNA superstar Kurt Angle has been arrested for DWI again, TMZ has learned -- his 4th alcohol-related arrest in 6 years .. and the pro wrestler now plans to enter rehab.

A rep for the Texas highway patrol tells TMZ, Angle was busted Thursday night in Wise County, Texas following a live taping of "Impact" for Spike TV. We're told police received a call about a reckless driver, and caught up to Angle on the road.

We're told they pulled him over on suspicion of reckless driving, and detected an odor of alcohol emanating from Angle's vehicle. It's unclear if a field sobriety test was administered, but Angle was placed under arrest and taken to a nearby police station.

Angle has a long history with alcohol-related arrests.

In 2007, he was arrested for DUI in Pennsylvania. He was then arrested twice in 2011 -- once for being drunk behind the wheel of his parked car, and once for DWI.

Angle pled guilty to being drunk while parked, but he got off on the other charges.

Late Friday Angle tweeted ... "In light of recent events I will immediately be entering a rehabilitation center." He added, "I am confident that in taking these steps I can begin to address necessary changes in my life."

My ****ing God... TMZ fire this lame ass writer.

They can't just charge you for dwi and not have proof. He would have needed to fail a field est before they can move on. Then they need to do a test to measure the booze or a blood test for drugs.

No way a DA would even file charges without these two very big pieces of evidence.. this is also why they have highly trained cops doing the test because they will have to testify in court. The defense will start to kill the case by finding out when the last time they were given updated training, any certs, arrest record as in how many convictions etc..

This is almost as bad as the bull**** tax levy's your office has no clue on how they work.

Just give him the same thing that Linds gets whenever she commits a new crime..... a little mansion-arrest, a stern talking to, and a ride on the talk-show loop.

Do you homos even know who Kurt Angle is? Guarantee you people wouldn't be saying anything to his face. He'd have you ******* on the ground begging for your mama. Who gives a **** if he got another DWI. You people cry about everything. Just like that Philadelphia Eagle that said ******. America is pathetic, and turning into a bunch of homo, *******. When is it going to be illegal to say the word ***got or ******? OK to say cracker though huh? ****** ****** ****** ****** ******. All you ****** loving trash.

With a mug like that, I'm surprised it's just alcohol he's going to rehab for.
