We had a bit of trepidation about wading into this story yesterday, but it is at least worth a mention because police really are involved.
NASCAR driver Kurt Busch is being investigated by Dover Delaware police after his former girlfriend came to police and accused him of assault.
The incident is alleged to have happened after the race at Dover Speedway back in September. Busch's former girlfriend, Patricia Driscoll, says after the race in his motorhome, a despondent Busch got angry and grabbed her head, banging it against a wall and hurting her.
The pair had broken up a week earlier.
We should add that Driscoll is the president of the Armed Forces Foundation which had ties to Busch's racing team. Those ties have since been severed.

Police are looking into the allegations and thus far have not commented other than to say that.
As for Busch, his attorney Rusty Hardin (yes, the attorney to athletes everywhere) released a statement saying "The Dover Police department has been informed that Mr. Busch will fully cooperate with their investigation and he expects to be vindicated when the entire truth of the situation comes to light..."
Hardin added that the allegations come from a woman who refused to accept the end of a relationship among other things.
NASCAR is also monitoring the situation and has decided it would be inappropriate to comment or take action until they have more information.
