Kurt Angle's Brother Arrested After Assaulting Youth Wrestler

The brother of WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle was arrested Saturday after picking up a youth wrestler tossing him to the mat.

Footage of the incident was posted on Facebook and shows Eric Angle picking up a 12-year-old boy during Saturday’s Pennsylvania Junior Wrestling Championships held at Petersen Events Center in Pittsburgh.

He was arrested by University of Pittsburgh police on a charge of simple assault after the incident.

Angle, a former wrestler himself who last appeared in the WWE in 2003, said he’s distraught about his actions, which took place after the unidentified wrestler lost his match, witnesses told WTAE.

“I should have just walked away and let him get thrown out,” Angle told the station. “Instead, I’m the one who embarrassed myself even more.”

Reps from Pittsburgh Junior Wrestling are cooperating with investigators, WTAE reports.
