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.
