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 in a Twitter post that he was not drunk but was in ice storm and his car slid into three feet of snow, and he was the one who 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.
“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.
