Anderson Racer Charged With DUI

Police say an Anderson race car driver was arrested on drunken driving and other charges Saturday night after a crash on the track led to a fight in the pits. 49-year-old Tommy Grant Lathan was black-flagged by Anderson Speedway officials for reckless and aggressive driving. He left the track, but came back on and crashed into another car. A fight in the pits led to the discovery of alcohol on Lathan’s breath. Anderson Speedway enforces a “no-tolerance” alcohol and drug policy. Owner Rick Dawson says “Safety is their No. 1 priority.”
