Kurt Angle, the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, was arrested on charges of possessing a human growth hormone and for violating an order to stay away from his girlfriend. The arrest took place on Saturday at 7:50 AM in a Robinson Township parking lot. The reports say Angle was circling the parking lot and staring into a coffee shop where his girlfriend happened to be.
Angle and his girlfriend were fighting Friday night, forcing the woman to seek an order of protection.
Hygetropin was the substance police found in Angle’s car. Angle told the officer that he had obtained the human growth hormone through legal perscription. As far as circling the coffee shop like a buzzard, Angle said he was out looking for a hotel room because he was banned from entering his house.
Angle, 40, posted bail and will be in court Tuesday and Wednesday to answer the drug charges and the harrassment charges the next day. He was officially charged with violating a protection order, harassment, possession of drugs and paraphenalia, and driving with a suspended license.
Angle is the current TNA champion. He is also a two-time NCAA Division-I wrestling champion who represented Clarion. Angle garnered most of his success as an amateur by winning an Olympic gold medal in 1996 in Atlanta. He has been a pro wrestler since 1998.
