DOVER, Del., Nov. 10 (UPI) -- NASCAR driver Kurt Busch is being investigated for a incident of domestic violence at a race in Dover, Delaware.
The charges were brought forth Wednesday and allege that Busch assaulted his ex-girlfriend inside his motorhome at a race in Dover during the Sept. 26-28 weekend.
According to the documents, "He was verbally abusive to her and said he wished he had a gun so that he could kill himself."
Busch allegedly then jumped up, grabbed her face and smashed her head three times against the wall next to the bed.
She then pushed him away and ran to get medical aid. Busch denied the accusations.
"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," said Busch's attorney Rusty Hardin.
Both NASCAR and Stewart-Haas racing said they are taking the accusations seriously and are waiting to see how the investigation unfolds.
"We recognize the seriousness of this matter and are actively gathering information from all parties, including law enforcement authorities and Stewart-Haas Racing," said NASCAR Chief Communications Officer Brett Jewkes. "It would be inappropriate for NASCAR to comment further on this matter until we have more information.
A hearing is scheduled for Dec. 2.
