A Delaware judge ruled against NASCAR driver Kurt Busch Monday ordering him to stay away from ex-girlfriend Patricia Driscoll. The judge granted the protective order weeks after a hearing into an alleged domestic violence incident that occurred in September last year at Dover International Speedway.
The order, which is in force until the end of the year, says Busch has to stay 100 yards away from Driscoll, her home and workplace. At NASCAR races he has to maintain the maximum “practicable” distance from her and not attempt to contact her.
Carolyn McNeice, Driscoll’s attorney, said she and her client were pleased with the decision: “Ms. Driscoll can now know that she will not receive any unwanted communications from Mr. Busch and feel that she is safe after nearly 5 months,” McNeice said in an email. MORE>>>
