Kurt Angle was arrested yesterday in Grand Forks, North Dakota and charged with “being in control of a motor vehicle while intoxicated,” after failing a field sobriety test. Contrary to the report, he claims he was not drunk and that the story was blown out of proportion.
“Thank U to my supporters. I was not drunk. I was in ice storm and my car slid into 3 ft of snow median. I called police 4 help. They had other plans. I was stuck and wanted to go to my hotel. I was not passed out drunk. I was coherent. I’m sorry if I let you down. Don’t believe everything You read. My life is good and this is a speed bump in the road. The truth will come out. GOD Bless. I take responsibility for this.
My job is to stay clean and never put myself in jeopardy. TMZ blew it out of proportion. After my Hearings, I will give You proper story. GOD Bless. Kurt Angle. I Love You all.”
Following the arrest, he worked the evening’s TNA Wrestling live event in Grand Forks, North Dakota. The Olympic gold medalist beat Jeff Jarrett in a ten minute match.
