NASCAR: Kurt Busch under domestic assault probe

Adapted from

Police in Dover, Delaware released a statement Friday, confirming that an investigation of alleged domestic assault involves NASCAR driver Kurt Busch.

His ex-girlfriend, Patricia Driscoll, has accused him of bashing her head against a wall in Busch's motorhome while he was despondent over the outcome of qualifying at the Dover International Speedway in September, according to news reports.

"He was verbally abusive to her and said he wished he had a gun so that he could kill himself," the documents say.

An attorney for Busch said the allegations are false and brought by a rejected ex-girlfriend "who has refused to accept the end of a relationship." A hearing has been set for December 2nd.

Kurt Busch, Kyle's older brother has a reputation for being temperamental. The former Sprint Cup champion has been fined and/or suspended for verbally abusing reporters and for altercations with other drivers.
