Tony Stewart Questioned by Police Over Scuffle

Filed under: Tony Stewart 

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.

“There was an altercation at the racetrack” said Stewart as he took a break in tasting at Daytona Thursday. “We 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.”

It is not yet clear whether any charges will be filed.

  2. I cannot critisize Tony for loosing his temper because of the lack of information as to what his concerns were. For instance, was the water leak causing a safety problem or something else. Since he could not go into detail, who am I to judge him. Lets face it, probably a slow newsday when the incident happened and an American in a foreign country. Gotta go, cars on the track in practice.

  4. Tony was thinking about safety issue and the track owner should have listen to Tony instead of getting into heated discussion. Tony was right and if I were the owner I would have listen to him and did something about the leak. Tony, I’m with you all the way. You’re the best !
