MCKEES ROCKS, Pa. (AP) - Professional wrestler and Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle has been cleared of charges of harassment and possession of human growth hormone.

Angle was arrested last month in suburban Pittsburgh after his ex-girlfriend called police. Authorities alleged they found vials of human growth hormone in Angle's car.

His ex-girlfriend, Trenesha Biggers, had obtained a protection order after the two had fought. Attorney Michael Santicola says the dismissal of the harassment charge means a protection-from-abuse order violation should be dismissed later this month.

The 40-year-old wrestler said he had a prescription for HGH to treat previous neck injuries. He also denied stalking Biggers.

Biggers did not comment outside court. Angle said he will be more careful about who he associates with in the future.
