GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — An Olympic gold medalist turned pro wrestler has pleaded guilty to reckless driving in North Dakota.

The Grand Forks Herald reports that under the terms of a plea agreement with prosecutors, Kurt Angle will pay a $475 fine and won't serve jail time. A judge must agree.

The 42-year-old Coraopolis, Penn., resident was arrested March 25 after he was found in a vehicle in the median of Interstate 29 near Thompson. He initially was charged with actual physical control, meaning he was accused of being behind the wheel of a vehicle while drunk. He said in a Twitter post that he was not drunk but that his car had slid into snow during a storm.

Angle won a gold medal wrestling for the U.S. at the Olympic Games in Atlanta.
