As noted before, Kurt Angle’s blood alcohol level was below the state of Virginia’s legal limit of 0.08 – a 0.06, as confirmed by TMZ Tuesday when they obtained a copy of the Certificate of Blood Alcohol Analysis.
In a statement, the TNA World Heavyweight Champion defended his actions. “I did not believe my driving behavior was reckless or otherwise improper,” he said. “I fully cooperated with the officer who clearly recognized me while performing his standard procedures. Subsequent to the stop, I was asked to submit to a breathalyzer test and passed. I do not believe that I broke any laws and will be entering a plea of not guilty in response to any pending charges.”
Angle alleges that he was returning from a live TNA show and was in an “unfamiliar place, late at night and was trying to find the exit for my hotel.”
