After his arrest in Florida on Tuesday, ARCA Menards Series racer Daniel Dye was immediately suspended.
Dye, a DeLand, Fla., native, is a full-time ARCA Menards Series participant with GMS Racing.
Dye was caught and charged with criminal battery, according to court documents, on Tuesday afternoon. After posting a $2500 bond, he was freed from the Volusia County (Florida) Jail Tuesday evening.
Felony battery is defined as contacting or hitting another person against their will, causing grave physical harm, lifelong impairment, or permanent deformity, according to Florida statutes.
According to the police complaint, Dye struck another pupil in the crotch area at Father Lopez Catholic High School in Daytona Beach, Fla.
