Deputies said 57-year-old David Wilson’s fiancée called 911 during the Indianapolis 500 after Wilson got upset during a dispute over whether NASCAR or IndyCar was better, according to WXIN.

Wilson’s fiancée, who told police they had been drinking all day, said Wilson got angry when he heard her and another person “talking trash about NASCAR” and how IndyCar is better than NASCAR.

Wilson admitted to police he overheard the conversation and yelled into the room at both of them, but he denied the physical altercation took place.

Wilson also told police he was frustrated because no one in the home would help with household work. He was arrested on preliminary charges of domestic battery and strangulation.



    David Wilson is correct about NASCAR. My only question is what is a 57-year-old man doing with a fiancée? Is that some kind of glorified girlfriend?

      It’s a French word, referring to a woman who is engaged to be married.

      Let me know if you have any other questions.


        By age 57 most men have a wife and grand kids. All too often a fiancée is just a glorified name for a shack up.

    If that woman had any smarts at all the wedding would be OFF. He could kill her if she started talking bad about the bass fishing tournaments. Wow!
