Singer Gavin DeGraw may simply have been in the wrong place at the wrong time when he was viciously attacked in NYC's Lower East Side early Monday.
The New York Post reports that the "Chariot" crooner had just wrapped up a night of drinking with pals when he was randomly attacked by a pack of thugs between 3:50 and 4:20 a.m. on 6th Street and 1st Avenue.
After the thugs fled, DeGraw stumbled off — and was then hit by a taxi over a dozen blocks up. Sources told the Post that the attack did not appear to be a robbery.
A rep for the singer told Us Weekly Tuesday morning: "Gavin DeGraw is currently recovering and in stable condition at Bellevue Hospital where he was taken late Sunday night by ambulance after he was attacked by a group of assailants. He suffers from a concussion, broken nose, black eyes, cuts and bruises. The police are conducting an investigation of the attack."
DeGraw has been touring this summer with Maroon 5 and Train. He owns a Manhattan apartment and co-owns a bar, the National Underground, with his brother on East Houston Street.
"Gavin and his family appreciate everyone's concern at this time. We have no information yet regarding his upcoming concert dates and promotion for his new album."
