Kurt Angle's attorney issued a written statement on Sunday about his client's arrest:
Unfortunately, the PFA process allows women (and men on occasion) to fabricate a tale to intake individuals within the court system without any corroborating evidence whatsoever, and the result is that innocent people are served with PFAs that did not do anything.
In Kurt's case, that is precisely what happened. The woman involved has no injuries, was not threatened, and absolutely no conflict occurred.
We are confident that once a court actually hears the evidence, the PFA will be dismissed.
In addition, the alleged violation of this PFA was said to have happened at a Starbucks minutes after Kurt was served with the original paperwork.
It was only by happenstance that they were in the same place to get coffee. They did not speak, and Kurt did not know she was present.
As for the allegations of driving under suspension and possession of prescription drugs; simply stated, the drugs are properly prescribed by his physician. They are legal.
In addition, despite the fact that Kurt was found not guilty of DUI, the Commonwealth has still attempted to suspend his license for refusing the blood test request by the officers.
He has appealed that decision and that appeal is under appeal to the Commonwealth Court. This appeal acts as a stay on his suspension.
