Crash Leads To Fist Fight At Anderson Speedway, One Driver Tased

A bizarre and crazy fight broke out at the Anderson Speedway in Anderson, Indiana last weekend following an accident on the track.

While crashes are a part of racing, the driver who was hit was upset and decided to get revenge on the driver that hit him. As you can see in the video, the driver accelerates towards the other car and turns around. After a few seconds, he floors it and essentially parks his car on the hood of the other vehicle.

At this point, 42-year-old Shawn Cullen exits his car and starts punching 40-year-old Jeffrey Swinford as track officials watch on. A police officer eventually arrives and uses a taser on Cullen who falls to the ground. He’s eventually handcuffed and led off the track by police.

Swinford met a similar fate as he was also handcuffed and taken into custody.

According to Fox 59, Anderson Police Major Joel Sandefur confirmed the crash and fight were not staged. As a result, Cullen was ticketed for disorderly conduct while Swinford was charged with criminal recklessness. The latter charge means Swinford “recklessly, knowingly, or intentionally” performed an “act that creates a substantial risk of bodily injury.”

    What an incredibly vulgar display. And I don’t mean the guys fighting. I mean the pathetic little losers in green shuffling about and then the fat ass with the badge sashaying in with a cattle prod. Pathetic.

      It was not the job of the guys in green to stop a fight. That’s the Officer’s job and he did exactly what he should have and did it appropriately. The fight was stopped and the guy was subdued.

      And to think these guys are out on the public roads with that kind of road rage inside.

        I couldn’t DISAGREE with you more if I tried.

          Try harder

            Those guys in green acted/reacted like women. But that’s what ‘men’ have become these days. And that cop? Embarrassing. FACT IS… it WAS the ‘job’ of the guys in green to stop a fight.

          • Auf Wiedersehen

            You are high. The guys in green are a safety crew. They get the people out of a a car should they need help and start to remove the wreckage. Police security are there to handle violent and law breaking people. Drivers or spectators. This was a law breaking issue as soon as the first punch was thrown.

            What HAS become embarrassing these days is police being vilified for doing their job. Sure there are some bad cops and ones that go overboard and they seem to be all over the internet thanks to cell phones, but this guy did his job to perfection and should be credited for that.

    As far as I can tell, the black car cut the corner and was turned around. Then in spite. decided to destroy the other driver’s car. Not that these ugly good for nothing pieces of rubbish are actually anything to write home about. Presumably this is Trailer Trash racing.

    • Auf Wiedersehen

      This is normal at this track. In fact a whole documentary was made about it. Once a booming GM town…now practically a shell.

    Get ‘er done!

    Nice work by the police officer. Quick and appropriate use of a taser. The charges that were then filed are also appropriate.

  • Shobin Drogan

    My favourite part is when theres like 6 people standing around the guy and not 1 decided to break up the fight.
