Kurt AngleA judge in Virginia has ordered Kurt Angle to pay $1,500 for reckless driving. Angle got charged with reckless driving when he was arrested in September on the suspicion of drunk driving. Angle was hit with the maximum fine of $2,500 but the judge suspended $1,000 of it.

Angle will not serve any jail time and will not lose his license.

Angle's attorney plead No Contest on Tuesday. Angle was not present in court. He was originally charged with DUI but was only tried for the reckless driving charge.

Angle's lawyer says when he was pulled over for swerving on the road after a TNA live event in September, he was just texting on his cell phone. The story is that Angle was texting the promoter of the show, presumably a TNA employee, about his payment that night. The state district attorney did not believe that Angle was simply texting while driving but the judge sided with Angle's defense.
