Mike Wallace lay on the ground, bleeding from his face, while three men continued beating him and his daughter, Lindsey. Mike was kicked in the face after being knocked out by the youngest of the trio while Lindsey and her husband were both struck by the other men.
“When they did hit me, it knocked me out,” Wallace said after the incident. “I was on the ground, I could feel myself getting beat, but I couldn’t feel the intensity of it.”
Now the company the three men worked for, Lucas Lawn & Landscaping, are fighting back with their attorney releasing a statement on being unfairly treated by the public.
“The efforts being made to disparage our business and negatively impact its hardworking employees is both disturbing and uncalled for,” the attorney wrote in a release. “… (Mike) Wallace and his supporters intend to have this matter resolved in the court of public opinion.”

The events all took place at the Rascal Flatts concert at PNC Music Pavilion in Charlotte on June 17. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police released audio tapes of three 911 calls, with one person claiming, “there’s blood everywhere.”
So saddened to hear what happened to Mike Wallace & his daughter after the Charlotte concert. Sending love & prayers for a fast recovery.

Court records show that Paul Lucas, 29, was charged with a misdemeanor assault on a female after kicking Lindsey, in the ribs, left arm and leg after she attempted to shield her father. Nathan Lucas, 22, was charged with misdemeanor assault after striking Wallace in the face. Randolph Taylor Magnum, 24, was charged with misdemeanor assault after he struck Mike Wallace’s son-in-law with his feet and hands.
All three men have court dates set for July 22.
Just awful. Not usually a fan of vigilante justice, but the police and courts cant (wont) seem to stop these punks. pic.twitter.com/GUpv2EqKJn

Wallace and his daughter were taken to a Charlotte hospital after claiming he simply asked the three men what they thought of the show. More 911 calls revealed witnesses stating there was a “big ass fight” taking place outside of the pavilion.
PNC Music Pavilion issued a statement Tuesday after terminating services with Lucas Lawn & Landscaping.
We were saddened by the regrettable events that took place on Friday, June 17. Upon learning that the offensive actions were taken by patrons who also happened to be employed by Lucas Landscaping, one of our service providers, we took swift and immediate action to terminate services provided by Lucas Landscaping at PNC Music Pavilion.
Paul Lucas, the son of Lucas Lawn & Landscaping owner Paul Douglas Lucas Jr., said his son has no stake in the company, according to lawyer Kenneth Swain. Lucas Jr. said attacks are unfair given the fact that the actions had nothing to do with the company itself.
