Written by Jessica Smith on Aug. 10, 2011

Gavin DeGraw was released from the hospital Tuesday afternoon after a mysterious attack by an unknown group of men on Sunday that left the singer with a concussion, a broken nose, and a number of cuts and bruises.

Shortly after his release from the hospital, he sent a tweet to his followers thanking them for their concern and giving them an update: “Hi my friends. Honestly, I don’t remember much. I only know I can recover from here. Thank u all for your genuine concern. I love u guys.”

The attack took place very early Monday in East Village, NY after DeGraw left a group of friends, but little is still known about why or who led the attack, although it is still being investigated at this time. “The victim claims to have been struck by these individuals and taken to the hospital,” a police spokesman said.

As of this post, it is still unknown if DeGraw was intoxicated during the incident, although DeGraw did mention that he knew very little about the attack Tuesday while in the hospital. After the beatdown, DeGraw was reportedly run over by a taxi, although he wasn’t very seriously hurt by the vehicle.

A spokeswoman for DeGraw noted that his injuries prohibited him from opening for Train and Maroon 5 at the upcoming concerts at August 12 and August 13.

UPDATE: Gavin’s brother, Joey DeGraw, spoke to the New York Post, noting that his brother “had nothing but cranberry juice to drink” shortly before he was attacked.
