Kvapil Arrested, Charged With Assault, Imprisonment

Phil Allaway · Wednesday October 9, 2013


The “Mooresville Tribune is reporting”: that Travis Kvapil, driver of the No. 93 Burger King/Dr. Pepper Toyota for BK Racing, was arrested Tuesday night following a 911 call from his home in Iredell County, NC.

According to the Mooresville Police Department, the police responded to Kvapil’s home after receiving a 911 call about a domestic assault involving his wife, Jennifer. Upon arrival at Kvapil’s home, police apprehended Kvapil on grounds of assault and false imprisonment.

After his arrest, Kvapil was taken to the Iredell County Jail in Statesville, where he was held under a domestic hold ahead of a court appearance today. After the court appearance, Kvapil posted bail and was released from custody.

Under North Carolina law, False Imprisonment is a Class 1 misdemeanor punishable by probation and anywhere from one to 45 days in jail, in addition to a fine. Assault is considered to be a Class 2 misdemeanor. That is punishable by
probation, up to 30 days in jail, and a fine of up to $1,000. However, if the state were to increase Kvapil’s assault charge to a charge of Domestic Violence, then it would be considered an A1 level Misdemeanor, punishable by probation and up to 60 days in jail.

A spokesperson for NASCAR stated that the sanctioning body is aware of the incident, but will not comment at this time.

BK Racing co-owner Ron Devine briefly spoke on the issue earlier today.

“We’re trying to understand the situation right now,” Devine told’s Lee Spencer. “I’ve known for less than an hour and at the appropriate time, we’ll make an announcement.”

The only official move that BK Racing has taken at this point is to remove a picture from the team’s Twitter page. The picture contained shots of both Kvapil and teammate David Reutimann’s cars with pink ribbons in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
