The Associated Press has published a report on Kurt Angle’s arrest Friday morning in North Dakota, who was found sitting behind the wheel of a sport utility vehicle in the median of a highway following Thursday’s TNA Wrestling live event in Fargo.
The report features comments from Highway Patrol Capt. Kevin Robson contradicting Angle’s claims on Twitter. A passer-by reported that a vehicle was in the median at approximately 12:15 a.m. on Friday morning. Angle claimed on Twitter that he called police. A trooper arrived on the scene and smelled alcohol in Angle’s vehicle. He failed a field sobriety test. Angle was arrested and charged with being in control of a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
Angle claimed in a Twitter post that he was not drunk but was in ice storm and his car slid into three feet of snow. “Don’t believe everything you read,” Angle wrote. “My life is good and this is a speed bump in the road. The truth will come out.” Angle was released after posting $300 cash bond. He wrestled the evening’s live event in Grand Forks in North Dakota.
