UPDATE x 3: TMZ.com has updated their story with additional details on Kurt Angle’s DWI arrest late Thursday night. Here is their updated story:

TNA superstar Kurt Angle has been arrested for DWI again, TMZ has learned — his 4th alcohol-related arrest in 6 years .. and the pro wrestler now plans to enter rehab.

A rep for the Texas highway patrol tells TMZ, Angle was busted Thursday night in Wise County, Texas following a live taping of “Impact” for Spike TV. We’re told police received a call about a reckless driver, and caught up to Angle on the road.

We’re told they pulled him over on suspicion of reckless driving, and detected an odor of alcohol emanating from Angle’s vehicle. It’s unclear if a field sobriety test was administered, but Angle was placed under arrest and taken to a nearby police station.

Angle has a long history with alcohol-related arrests.

In 2007, he was arrested for DUI in Pennsylvania. He was then arrested twice in 2011 — once for being drunk behind the wheel of his parked car, and once for DWI.

Angle pled guilty to being drunk while parked, but he got off on the other charges.

Late Friday Angle tweeted … “In light of recent events I will immediately be entering a rehabilitation center.” He added, “I am confident that in taking these steps I can begin to address necessary changes in my life.”

UPDATE x 2: Kurt Angle just revealed via Twitter that he is headed to rehab after being arrested late Thursday night for driving while intoxicated. Angle tweeted the following:

“I am blessed to have the support of my family, my friends and my company,” he wrote. “In light of recent events, I will be immediately entering a rehabilitation center. I realize that this is a pivotal time in my life and I ask for your understanding as well as your prayers and continued support. I am confident that in taking these steps I can begin to address necessary changes in my life.”

Good luck and get well soon, Kurt. Lots of people are behind you on this.
