Rascal Flatts Send Prayers to NASCAR’s Mike Wallace
The band tweeted the following message on Monday (June 20):
Wallace was hospitalized after he was assaulted in Charlotte, N.C. on Friday night (June 17). According to multiple media reports, the driver and his daughter, Lindsey, were attacked at PNC Music Pavilion after attending the Rascal Flatts show. Wallace told WBTV that three men he never met approached him and his daughter and attacked them, repeatedly punching and kicking them. He is still distraught about the "beatdown."
“We’ve never been through anything like this,” he states.
According to Wallace, three of his front teeth have been knocked a few inches into his mouth, his black eye is causing impaired vision and his lip received 10 stitches. His daughter was taken away from the parking lot in a stretcher and moved to the hospital, WBTV reports.
“They just knocked me out. When I come to, my daughter is laying on the ground, my son-in-law were on top of me trying to protect me,” Wallace recalls. “They were kicking me, beating on me.”
Motorsport.com reports that three men have since been arrested and charged in relation to the crime. The three alleged assailants have a court appearance set for July 22 in Mecklenburg County District Court.
