Kurt Busch assault investigation forwarded to prosecutors
DOVER, Del. (AP) - The police investigation into allegations that NASCAR driver Kurt Busch assaulted his ex-girlfriend has been finished and forwarded to Delaware state prosecutors to decide whether charges will be filed.
Cpl. Mark Hoffman with the Dover Police Department said Tuesday that the agency's investigation into the allegations was finished, but he declined to say whether investigators were recommending that Busch be charged. He also declined to release the report.
Acting spokesman Joe Rogalsky says the Delaware Attorney General's Office has the investigation and is in the process of making a decision. He declined to discuss timing.
Busch's ex-girlfriend, Patricia Driscoll, says Busch choked her and smashed her head into a wall inside his motorhome at Dover International Speedway in September.
Attorneys for the 36-year-old Busch have denied the allegations.
