Pro wrestler, Olympic medalist Kurt Angle faces DUI charges

Professional wrestler and Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle has been ordered to stand trial on a drunken driving charge.

The Associated Press is reporting that the Moon Township PA. police have charged 39-year-old Angle on Sept. 28 after a motorist told them Angle cut her off while pulling out of a bar parking lot that afternoon.

A police officer testified Tuesday he went to Angle’s Moon Township home, where the wrestler admitted to driving the vehicle and drinking a few beers at the bar that day. Police say Angle failed field sobriety tests and refused a blood test.

Angle won a gold medal in the 1996 Summer Olympics.
