Can-Am Owner Apologizes For Actions Caught On Video
A race track owner is apologizing after he was caught on tape grabbing and threatening a young driver.
A YouTube video showing Can-Am Speedway owner Tiger Chapman manhandling a 17 year old racer has gone viral with 34,000 views.
"I lost my cool as a father," Chapman told 7 News. "I'm greatly ashamed."
"I did not act as a race track owner, I acted as a parent."
The altercation happened at the track a little more than a week ago.
The driver, Justin Williams, had been in a spin-out accident with a car driven by Tiger Chapman's son.
No one was injured. Chapman reacted by reaching into Williams' car and threatening his life.
The driver's father, Doug Williams, says he's getting a lawyer and might take legal action.
Chapman says if the family presses charges, he will accept it.
