Rascal Flatts tweeted Monday to its 1.7 million followers that the group was saddened to hear about the beating NASCAR driver Mike Wallace and his daughter suffered in the parking lot after Friday’s show near Charlotte, North Carolina.
Mecklenburg County Sheriff officers arrested three men for the attack. Two were charged with misdemeanor assault and one was charged with misdemeanor assault on a female. All three were released on bond. They face a July 22 court date.
A police report stated that the “victims were kicked and punched several times in the head, face and stomach by the listed suspects following a verbal altercation.”
Wallace has stated in multiple interviews that he asked a group parked beside his family how they enjoyed the show afterward when one member of the party became belligerent. Wallace has said he asked what the person’s problem was. The attack ensued shortly and Wallace was knocked out.
Both he and his daughter were taken to a local hospital. They were treated and released. Wallace told WSOC that he suffered a concussion, needed 12 stitches and lost three teeth.
The police investigation continues.
