MCKEES ROCKS, Pa. (AP) - Police say pro wrestler and Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle has been arrested for possessing a human growth hormone in suburban Pittsburgh.
Police say they arrested Angle just before 8 a.m. Saturday in a strip mall parking lot in Robinson Township. His girlfriend told police she had obtained an order of protection against him after the two fought Friday night.
Police say they found the human growth hormone Hygetropin in Angle's car.
Authorities say Angle said he had a prescription for the drug and denied stalking the woman.
Police charged him with violating the protection order, harassment, possession of drugs and paraphernalia and driving with a suspended license.
Messages left for attorney Michael Santicola, who has represented him previously, were not immediately returned Sunday.
