From the August 16th edition of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review, and also mentioned on all my local news stations.

Quote:
Professional wrestler and Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle was charged Saturday with possessing human growth hormone, along with harassing an ex-girlfriend and violating a protection from abuse order, according to a criminal complaint.

Police stopped Angle, 40, around 7:50 a.m. yesterday in the parking lot at the Robinson Town Center Starbucks coffee shop after his ex-girlfriend called 911 to say that he was stalking her, according to the police affidavit filed to support the criminal charges. She claimed that he had circled the coffee shop's parking lot three times, staring at her while she was sitting at an outside table, the complaint states.

A black bag in the front seat of the silver Cadillac STS that Angle was driving contained a capped syringe and two vials of "Hygetropin," which also were labeled "recumbant Human Growth Hormone Somatropin (rDNA origin) for injection," according to the complaint.

Hygetropin is the brand name for a type of human growth hormone, according to a Web site for a Chinese company claiming to be the manufacturer. Growth hormones have been banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency, an independent international organization that opposes doping in sports.

Angle told police he had a legal prescription for the drug and would be able to provide a copy, the complaint states. He was charged with two counts related to the drug, including possession.

Angle could not be reached for comment. A phone number for his Corapolis home has been disconnected.

At the 1996 summer Olympics in Atlanta, Angle won a wrestling gold medal, and he was a two-time collegiate wrestling champion at Clarion University. He has been a professional wrestler since 1998.

Bruce Baumgartner, a four-time Olympic wrestling medalist who used to train with Angle, said that it's not good for amateur athletes to see any professional linked to human growth hormone. Baumgartner works as the athletic director at Edinboro University.

"I believe when he was competing as an Olympian, none of that stuff was in his life," Baumgartner said.

Police also charged Angle with harassment and driving with a suspended license. He was acquitted of drunken-driving charges in September.

Angle told police that he and his ex-girlfriend had an altercation Friday night and that she had obtained an emergency protection from abuse order on him, the complaint states.

When he was stopped yesterday morning, Angle denied that he was stalking his ex-girlfriend, saying that he had not seen her and that he was looking for a hotel where he could stay, according to the complaint.

Angle was released from the Allegheny County Jail yesterday afternoon on two separate bail agreements, each set at $10,000 with 10 percent down, a court clerk said.

You know its weird to see a pro wrestler having something bad to happen to them. Cause they are a wrestler you think there untouchable from bad things to happen to them but as years have shown that has never been the case.

I'm pissed off with him tbh. He's somone who's doing so well in his line of work only to majorly fuck it up. He could of gotten himself sacked, but surely they'll at least suspend him?

Thats true but sometimes a person doesn't think of there actions before its too late. Not that I am sticking up for Angle's actions. But you are right he should have thought ahead of his actions cause he could put himself in a position where he might not be working in TNA it just a possiblity of happening.

Doubt there'll be any suspension. He's so tight with the execs (esp. TNA President Dixie Carter) and the creative team that he's actually rumoured to have been offered one of the Head Booker positions.
