Tony Stewart Questioned by Police Over Scuffle
Tony Stewart found himself behind closed doors at an Australian police station following a scuffle with a race track owner there.
Stewart was in Australia to compete in a Sprint Car race when he became involved with track owner Brett Morris over a safety issue when water began seeping onto the tracks surface.
As the discussion became more heated Stewart allegedly hit Morris with his helmet. The track owner retaliated and Stewart reportedly suffered a black eye.
Stewart says he is embarrassed by the situation.
â€œThere was an altercation at the racetrackâ€ said Stewart as he took a break in tasting at Daytona Thursday. â€œWe went down to the police station, we gave them a statement. They told us after the statement that we were free to go back to the hotel room and free to get on the plane the next day.â€
It is not yet clear whether any charges will be filed.
