FBI: Bubba Wallace noose a “door pull rope” not a crime

first_imgThe FBI has determined that a noose found in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s garage at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday was a door pull rope hanging in the garage since last year, according to the bureau. In addition, no one could have known that Wallace would be assigned that garage.A statement issued by U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town said that an investigation has concluded that no federal crime was committed.“The FBI learned that garage number 4, where the noose was found, was assigned to Bubba Wallace last week. The investigation also revealed evidence, including authentic video confirmed by NASCAR, that the noose found in garage number 4 was in that garage as early as October 2019,” the bureau said. “Although the noose is now known to have been in garage number 4 in 2019, nobody could have known Mr. Wallace would be assigned to garage number 4 last week.”Further details were not immediately released. The FBI said no charges would be pursued in relation to the incident.last_img read more
