(AP) ? 2 hours ago

MCKEES ROCKS, Pa. ? A preliminary hearing has been postponed for pro wrestler and Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle on charges he illegally possessed human growth hormone near Pittsburgh.

The 40-year-old star of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling was charged Saturday. Police say they found HGH when they stopped his vehicle in Robinson Township after Angle allegedly violated a protection from abuse order obtained by his girlfriend.

Angle contends he has a prescription for the HGH. His attorney says Angle didn’t violate the order, but just happened to stop at a coffee shop where the woman worked.

Tuesday’s hearing on the drug charge was rescheduled for Sept. 15. Angle faces a separate hearing Oct. 6 on violating the abuse order.
