More on Kurt Angle’s Arrest, Hardcore Justice UK Viewership, Knockout on TV Tonight

– TNA’s Hardcore Justice pay-per-view, which was on a three-day tape delay, did 214,000 viewers in the UK. This is up from 180,000 for the Destination X pay-per-view.

– TNA Knockout Rosita will be featured tonight on NBC’s Children of 9/11 special at 10pm EST. Rosita’s father died in the 9/11 attacks when she was just 10 years old. The NBC special will show highlights of her tryout match with TNA that never aired on TV.

– As expected, there is major heat within TNA on World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle for his DUI arrest over the weekend in Virginia. Since the incident, Angle hasn’t wrote anything on Twitter except that he was headed to the premiere of “Warrior” this morning.

Angle’s arrest on Sunday came after he was spotted swerving between lanes by another driver on 1-66 East near Linden, Virginia. Virginia State Troopers responded to the call and arrested Angle, taking him to the Warren County Jail where he posted $2,000 bond and was released at 3:31am. Angle was driving a rental car at the time and it was towed to a local impound lot. This isn’t confirmed by law enforcement yet but Angle was reportedly also texting while driving and reportedly only blew a .06, just below the legal limit.

    Read this….

    Drunk driving refers to driving (a motor vehicle, boat, or watercraft) with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) at a level where you can be arrested for driving under the influence (DUI). This is 0.08% in Virginia.

    Impaired driving means that your skills, including judgment, coordination, and response time, are affected before your BAC reaches that level, or if you are using drugs.

    You can be convicted of DUI if your BAC is less than 0.08%. For example, if there is proof that you are under the influence of drugs (even legal prescription or over-the-counter drugs) that impair your driving, you can be arrested for DUI with a BAC of zero

    That being said, he used extremely poor judgment, again. Tough decision time for TNA.

    if it was below the legal limit, why would they have arrested him?

  • Jason

    if it was below the legal limit its a dui ? I think their breath test was hacked lol

    It sounds like him texting while driving is what did more damage than the alcohol.
