Kurt Angle’s attorney Frank Smith issued the following statement regarding his client’s arrest early Sunday morning on charges of driving under the influence:
“We understand that Kurt Angle was pulled over last night for a traffic infraction and/or offense. During the stop, he 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.”
Here’s TMZ.com’s latest story on this:
Kurt Angle apparently believes he’s been FRAMED in connection with his drunk driving arrest Sunday morning … this according to sources connected with the famous wrestler.
As TMZ first reported, Angle was popped in Virginia after he was allegedly seen driving erratically on I-66.
But Angle’s lawyer tells TMZ … his client passed a breathalyzer test. The lawyer tells us, “We understand Kurt will be entering a plea of not guilty in response to any infractions and/or offenses.”
Sources connected with Kurt tell TMZ … cops are just trying to make an example of him.
The cops are mum, saying the case will be tried in court.
FYI … someone who is not legally drunk (i.e., someone who passes a breathalyzer test) can still be arrested for driving under the influence if drugs or alcohol — even minimal amounts — impair the driver’s ability to navigate the road.
