According to the criminal complaint filed in Greenbrier County, back on September 8, 2020, Angle had been involved in a domestic violence incident at a home in Leslie.

An officer with the West Virginia State Police Rainelle Detachment was dispatched to the scene after the victim called 911, stating that Angle was threatening to kill [the victim] and was trying to take the phone away from [the victim].

Angle was able to flee the scene, but he was charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm, domestic battery, domestic assault, petit larceny and interference with emergency communications.

A Greenbrier County Magistrate issued a warrant for his arrest on September 9, 2020.
