Kurt Angle arrested for DWI after TNA Impact tapings in Texas

Kurt Angle has been arrested -- again -- for DWI after the TNA Impact tapings in Texas last night.

TNA was in Wichita Falls, Texas, last night (Thurs., Aug. 1, 2013) for a live episode of Impact followed by a taping for next week's show that will air on Spike TV.

He was then arrested on suspicion of Driving While Intoxicated. This marks his second DWI offense, the first coming back in Sept. 2011 in Virginia. Angle was released on $2,000 bond and a court date will be scheduled to determine his punishment.
