The world is waking up to or, perhaps, going to bed to, the news that a group of men attacked pop singer Gavin DeGraw early Monday morning.
According to a lot of news articles, DeGraw had been out drinking with friends when he was beaten up on First Avenue between Fifth and Sixth Streets around 4 a.m. Monday. Then! According to reports, he walked (or stumbled or staggered, according to your news source) up to Third Avenue and 19th Street where he was hit by a cab about 30 minutes later.
He is in Bellevue with a broken nose and other lacerations. Police said that it was not clear what led to the attack or how many individuals were involved in the assault. He and his brother own the National Underground on East Houston Street.
