Kurt Angle: Your Olympic Hero And Creepy Stalker

Kurt Angle is many things: an Olympic hero who won a gold medal in amateur wrestling with a broken neck; one of the most successful and popular professional wrestlers of his generation; and if allegations made by his girlfriend are correct, a creepy stalker. The PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE says that Angle was arrested on Saturday in a Pittsburgh suburb after his female wrestling valet girlfriend says he followed her to a Starbucks after he was served with a restraining order earlier in the morning.

According to the criminal complaint, Angle told police that he was circling the parking lot because “he was looking for a hotel to stay in” after his girlfriend Trenesha Biggers, who wrestles under the name Rhaka Khan, had filed a restraining order against him following a fight the previous evening. Angle also had some explaining to do when police released he was driving on a suspended license following a recent DUI conviction, and that he had syringes and HGH in the car.
