Dover (Del.) police confirmed Wednesday that NASCAR driver Kurt Busch met with investigators Tuesday afternoon. Police are investigating allegations by Busch’s ex-girlfriend that he assaulted her in September.
The incident occurred while NASCAR was at the Dover International Speedway during the weekend of Sept. 26-28. Busch’s former girlfriend Patricia Driscoll, filed for a court order alleging that Busch was verbally abusive and that he wished he “had a gun so he could kill himself.” The incident allegedly occurred after the NASCAR Sprint qualifying session on the 26th. Driscoll has asked that Busch,36, be evaluated by a psychiatrist and that he stay away from her and her son.
According to the documents, Busch accused Driscoll of “having spies everywhere and having a camera on the bus to watch him.” Busch then physically assaulted Driscoll pushing her face against the wall several times. Driscoll said she escaped and took refuge in a nearby motorhome. Driscoll said she suffered severe pain, difficulty breathing and neck bruising because of the assault. MORE>>>
