TNA star Kurt Angle pleads guilty to reckless driving charge

Kurt Angle pleaded guilty to a charge of reckless driving Friday, according to a report on

Under the terms of a plea deal, Angle would have to pay a $475 fine, serve a year of unsupervised probation and undergo a chemical dependency evaluation. He would also receive a suspended sentence of 10 days in jail. The deal is pending approval from the judge.

Angle was arrested and charged with being in control of a motor vehicle while being intoxicated (which means he was allegedly intoxicated while in a car but wasn’t actually driving) on March 25 in North Dakota.

Police found Angle sitting in his car in the median separating lanes. He told police that he had skidded off the road after hitting a path of ice – he also claimed that he was distracted by receiving a text message – but he failed a field sobriety test.
