"I remember the hit, and then I woke up on the ground,"  Wallace told WJZY

Wallace says he was leaving a Rascal Flatts concert on Friday with his daughter  in Charlotte  when the alleged attack happened. Wallace was reportedly knocked unconscious and suffered a concussion and other injuries. 

Wallace's daughter Lindsey  tried to help her dad, but the attackers supposedly hit her, too. 

Mike's brother Kenny, who is also a former NASCAR driver, posted about the attack  on Facebook

He shared this photo, showing a bloody and beaten Mike. 

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department later arrested three men — 29-year-old Paul Lucas, 22-year-old Nathan Lucas and 24-year-old Randolph Mangum — in connection to the beating. 

But Wallace's daughter suggests a woman might have also been involved. 

"The mom of this group came up and put her hands on me and started strangling and pulling my hair and threw me down to the ground," Lindsey said.

The department didn't indicate that a woman was arrested in connection to the attack. All three men were charged with simple assault and released on bond. They're scheduled to appear in court July 22.
