Kurt Angle arrested on PFA violation, possession of HGH
By Jim McKinnon, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Pro wrestler Kurt Angle is free on bond following his arrest today on charges that he violated a protection of abuse order obtained by his girlfriend earlier in the morning.
Mr. Angle, 40, of Moon, was arrested by township police around 7:50 a.m. in the parking lot of a Giant Eagle Supermarket where his girlfriend, Trenesh Biggers, had taken refuge, according to a police affidavit that supports his arrest.
She told police Mr. Angle, who already had abused her physically, had been stalking her from outside a Starbucks where she was using a computer to send e-mails.
She said she was afraid to use her home computer because Mr. Angle lives there, the affidavit said.
She called police after she again saw him circling the supermarket parking lot.
In addition to the PFA violation, Mr. Angle also was arraigned on charges of harassment, possession of the human growth hormone Hygetropin, and possession of a syringe to use the controlled substance, police said.
Mr. Angle told police the drug is prescribed to him legally, the affidavit said.
Police ordered his car, a Cadillac, to be towed from the scene because Mr. Angle's license is suspended in connection with a previous drunken driving arrest.
After police were dispatched this morning, an officer pulled over his car on Park Manor and Robinson Town Center Drive.
During the traffic stop, Mr. Angle told police he and Ms. Biggers had an altercation last night. He said Moon police removed him from his residence.
He denied stalking Ms. Biggers, claiming he was looking for a hotel in which to stay since he was barred from his home.
Ms. Biggers reported to police that Mr. Angle had taken possession of her Blackberry cell phone, and that she feared he was erasing text messages and photos that showed injuries she suffered during their altercation.
Police recovered the cell phone and returned it to her.
Mr. Angle will face a preliminary hearing scheduled at 10 a.m. Tuesday before District Judge Carla Swearingen in Robinson.Pro wrestler Kurt Angle is free on bond following his arrest today on charges that he violated a protection of abuse order obtained by his girlfriend earlier in the morning.
