The update from www.pwtorch.com:
Police received a report of erratic driving from someone in a Cadillac Escalade. The eye witness wrote down the license plate, which police traced to Angle.
KDKA reports that Angle visited The Sea Shell. A woman told police Angle nearly hit her as he drove out of the parking lot. The same woman, who remains unidentified, swerved across the double yellow line twice and nearly hit a traffic sign.
When police tracked Angle down at his home, they smelled liquor on his breath. He was arrested and taken into custody. When he was taken to a local hospital for a routine blood test, he refused, which means he will face an automatic one year suspension of his driver’s license.
Police said Angle had pills in his mouth as officers were interviewing him – anti-inflammatory meds according to a police spokesman.
The KDKA TV reporter knocked on Angle’s front door, but when it was opened a crack, it was quickly slammed shut.
