Kurt Busch called to testify at hearing on alleged assault

BY foxsports • December 17, 2014

The attorney for Kurt Busch's ex-girlfriend has called the NASCAR driver to the stand to testify in a hearing in which the woman is seeking a court order directing him to stay away from her.

Patricia Driscoll's attorney called Busch to testify just before a lunch break in Wednesday's hearing. It was not immediately clear whether Busch would testify or cite his Fifth Amendment right to keep his silence.

Driscoll testified Tuesday that Busch choked her and smashed her head into a wall inside his motorhome at Dover International Speedway in September, and that she still fears for her safety.

Busch's attorneys have denied the allegations, which are the subject of a separate criminal investigation by Dover police. They say a no-contact order is not needed.
