Worse Week: The Elliott Family

It’s never a good week when one of your family members is arrested. That week only gets worse when said family member is arrested for trying to kill another family member and then the story gets out and everyone knows about it. That is what Chase Elliott and the Elliott family had to deal with this past week. Below is a excerpt for the Dawson News.

"Sheila G. Elliott, 63, was charged with felony aggravated assault in connection with an incident that occurred on March 18 at the family’s racing compound on Elliott Family Parkway. According to the arrest warrant, the suspect over revved the engine of her 2004 Mercedes Benz sedan and attempted to run her husband over with the vehicle, forcing him to climb “underneath a trailer for safety.” He was not injured during the incident, which was reported to local authorities on March 24, the same day a warrant was secured for Sheila Elliott’s arrest."

Sheila is Bill Elliott’s Sister-in-law and Chase Elliott’s Aunt.
