NASCAR Vet Mike Wallace & His Daughter Reportedly Assaulted After Rascal Flatts Concert
The assault took place in the parking lot outside PNC Amphitheater. Wallace told WSOC that he asked a group what they thought of the show when they became angry and attacked him, knocking him out. His daughter attempted to come to her father’s aid, but she was beaten up as well. Both went to the hospital, where Wallace received 12 stitches. WSOC reports that he also lost three teeth and suffered a concussion.
Wallace addressed the assault in a Facebook post. “I normally would not post personal affairs,” he wrote, “but this is to help and give advice to our friends, 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. This is what I looked like after I was knocked out and crap beat out of me. The ambulance driver took this picture we were just supposed to have a fun night. I want to thank my family and friends for helping to protect me from a worse beating as I [laid] unconscious on the ground.”
Three men were arrested in connection to the attack. According to police records obtained by WSOC, two of the men face charges of misdemeanor simple assault, while the third man was charged with misdemeanor assault on a female. All three posted bail. They will appear in court July 22.
