Wrestling legend Kurt Angle‚ who was arrested in early September for drunk driving‚ will not be prosecuted for the violation after a further review. The police report showed that Angle’s blood alcohol level measured in at .06 on the night he was arrested‚ which is under Virginia’s legal limit of .08.
In September‚ the wrestling champ was pulled over for swerving between lanes on I-66 in Warren County. Angle was taken to Warren County Jail for driving while intoxicated and later posted his $2,000 bond.
Prosecutors have agreed to reduce the charge to misdemeanor reckless driving. This is a huge break for Kurt Angle in his DWI case. Shockingly‚ however‚ he may still face up to 12 months behind bars and up to $2,500 in fines for reckless driving if convicted. That is a steep price to pay for swerving lanes.
