[googlead tip=”lista_medie” aliniat=”stanga”]Early Monday morning Gavin DeGraw, musician, was admitted at Bellevue Hospital, New York. He was beaten by a group of men and he was hit by a cab.

TMZ was the first website that reported this awful incident and mentioned that DeGraw was under observation at the hospital. According to New York Post,  on Sunday night Gavin went out for a drink, then left his friends around four o’clock in the morning. Police said several people  assaulted him on the street. They cut his face and broke his nose, then run away. DeGraw rose up and as he was walking, a cab struck him causing him mild injuries. It did not seem to be a robbery, NY Post sources said. It could be an argument that started the fight, said others (CBS New York). Anyway there were no arrests until now.

 Still no further  information could be found regarding Gavin’s  current status.[googlead tip=”vertical_mic” aliniat=”dreapta”]
Apparentely the wounds were not severe. On Gavin DeGraw‘s official website the schedule is the same. He had planned to sing in Saratoga Springs, NY  at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, as part of his summer tour, Tuesday night, August 9.

Also a news posted on August 8, 2011, 1:19 pm says:

“Want to hang out with Gavin this Wednesday, August 10, at 5:30pm EST? Then head on over to LiveStream at that appointed day and time for a one-of-a-kind LIVE webcast, featuring performances and casual banter from Gavin. […]”


However, probably he will have to cancel his agreements.

Gavin DeGraw‘s “Chariot” went platinum.
