TMZ.com reports that Kurt Angle believes he’s been framed in connection with his arrest Sunday morning on charges of driving under the influence.
Kurt Angle’s attorney Frank Smith tells TMZ his client was asked to submit to a breathalyzer test and passed. “We understand Kurt will be entering a plea of not guilty in response to any infractions and/or offenses,” he adds.
Sources close to the 2012 Olympic hopeful say the “cops are just trying to make an example of him.”
TMZ notes that someone who is not legally drunk can still be arrested for driving under the influence if drugs or alcohol impair the driver’s ability to navigate the road.
The TNA World Heavyweight Champion was arrested in Virginia and taken to Warren County Jail. He posted $2,000 bond and was released at 3:31 a.m.
