Lawrence Hayden, a former crew member of a NASCAR Xfinity Series team, was arrested on Friday at Dover International Speedway. The 33-year-old North Carolina native broke his former team owner’s jaw, according to the Dover, DE police, Friday morning.
Hayden, according to the law enforcement authorities, had a heated exchange with Jerry Hattaway, his former team owner, over his employment with the team. Before 11 am, Hayden allegedly punched Hattaway in the midfield of Dover International Speedway.
After repeated punches by Hayden, Hattaway suffered a broken jaw. During the incident, the authorities were called, before Hattaway was moved to the Fan Care Center at the track.
He was later moved to Bayhealth Kent General Hospital to better treat his injuries, according to Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman.
When the authorities arrived on the scene, Hayden did not resist and was taken into custody. He is charged with one count of second degree assault and was given a $500 secured bail.
Hattaway is the owner of JP Motorsports. The team had two drivers, Josh Bilicki and Stephen Leicht, start in the OneMain Financial 200 race, which started at 12:30 pm on Saturday.
Due to his arrest and attack, Hayden may have to look for employment outside of NASCAR moving forward.
