Court documents detail Kurt Busch domestic abuse allegation
According to court documents obtained by the AP, Driscoll described Busch as despondent following his elimination from the stock car playoff, saying he "wished he had a gun so that he could kill himself." He then became verbally abusive and accused Driscoll of "having spies everywhere and having a camera on the bus to watch him."
According to Driscoll, who had broken up with Busch the week prior, the 2004 Sprint Cup champ then jumped up and smashed her head against the wall inside his motorhome three times.
"This allegation is a complete fabrication by a woman who has refused to accept the end of a relationship and Mr. Busch vehemently denies her allegations in every respect," Busch's attorney, Rusty Hardin, told the AP via email. Busch is continuing to cooperate with the investigation.
Both NASCAR and Stewart-Haas Racing were seemingly blindsided by the news, with both outfits telling the AP last week that they were still gathering information.
A hearing is set for December 2. Stay tuned for more on this one.
