Kurt Busch and ex-girlfriend legal drama continues, attorneys say she lied on the stand
In the written arguments, Busch's lawyers asserted that Driscoll committed perjury in her testimony and her allegations were out to "ruin" the driver, according to Autoweek. Driscoll's attorney counters that the other side is trying to "smear" her client.
According to Driscoll, Busch was demoralized in his trailer following his elimination from the Chase for the Sprint Cup at a race in Dover, DE, in September 2014. She claimed that the driver became angry, grabbed her by the throat and slammed her head against a wall three times. Busch has disputed the allegations. He contended that he asked Driscoll to leave and eventually cupped her face in his hands to ask again. According to Autoweek, a detective testified that Busch said Driscoll's head "tapped the wall" then.
A neighbor reportedly saw marks on Driscoll's face after the race, according to her attorney. However, Busch's lawyers claim a NASCAR chaplain and his wife saw no such injuries at the track, Autoweek reported.
