NASCAR veteran driver Mike Wallace was on his way out of a Rascall Flatts concert when three men attacked him.
Mike Wallace and his daughter were on their way to the parking lot outside PNC Pavilion. This was when three men attacked Mike down with kicks to the head. As his daughter tried to block the attackers, she received multiple kicks to the ribs as well. Recounting the harrowing story in a Facebook post, Mike cautioned his followers.
The Facebook post reads, “Do not ever talk to a group of now what appeared to be drunk or drugged up young adult men or women when you’re trying to get in your car to leave the un guarded PNC amphitheater in Charlotte, NC parking lot after a good Rascal Flatts concert.”
He then shared pictures of the aftermath taken by their ambulance driver. It showed his bloodied face and his daughter on stretcher. Mike Wallace received 12 stitches in the mouth for the injuries. He has been discharged from the hospital.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department has captured the attackers but the three are already out of jail. The three posted bonds for their releases on a simple assault charge, MotorSport reports. They identified the attackers as Nathan Lucas, Robert Mangum and Paul Lucas.
The three men drove away in a white truck bearing a company name, “Lucas Landscaping in Indian Trail.” This is the third time this year that the trio engaged in similar altercations.
To add insult to injury, the attackers spent less time in jail than Mike Wallace’s stay in the hospital. Mike Wallace has three top-5 and fourteen top-10 finishes for 197 starts in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Fox Sports notes.
