Olympic gold medalist and professional wrestler Kurt Angle was found not guilty of driving under the influence and careless driving today.

Allegheny County Judge David Cashman made the ruling in a nonjury trial on charges filed Sept. 28.

Mr. Angle, of Moon, was arrested at his home after officers received a complaint from a witness who said Mr. Angle almost hit her car coming out of the Seashell Bar in Moon.

Mr. Angle's lawyer had challenged the use of a civilian witness as the basis for a prosecution, pointing out that no officer could put Mr. Angle in the vehicle at a specific time -- a crucial element in proving DUI.

More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
