Default THE SNOWMAN: Ex-NHRA driver accused of molestation

A legendary drag racer from Fort Worth is accused of repeatedly molesting a young boy for years, authorities said Wednesday.

Gene "The Snowman" Snow surrendered to Tarrant County Sheriff's Department investigators this month after they issued a warrant for his arrest on suspicion of aggravated sexual assault of a child, department spokesman Terry Grisham said. Snow posted $25,000 bail and was released the same day.

Snow, 69, who now lives in Bedford, is listed on the National Hot Rod Association's Web site as one the top 50 drivers in the organization's history. He was the first Funny Car driver to break 200 mph and the first Top Fuel driver to travel a quarter-mile in less than four seconds, according to the NHRA's site.

A 17-year-old went to sheriff's investigators in July and said that Snow began molesting him when he was in the fifth grade, according to court documents.

The teen, who was not identified, said he believes that Snow drugged him at least once and had cut holes in the wall of his guest bedroom so he could watch the boy, the documents state.

The teen said Snow paid him for sexual favors -- $30 on a couple of occasions -- and their sexual relationship lasted until recently.

Based on the teen's statement, Texas Rangers executed a search warrant in August and seized two computers, several sex toys, pornography and other items, according to court documents.

Snow has seven misdemeanor citations in Tarrant County for public lewdness and obscenity dating back to 1978. All were dismissed except for one public lewdness charge for which he paid a fine.

Default THE SNOWMAN: Ex-NHRA driver accused of molestation

The Associated Press

FORT WORTH, Texas Sep 22, 2006 (AP) - A former NHRA driver was arrested after being accused of repeatedly molesting a boy over several years.

Gene Snow surrendered to the Tarrant County Sheriff's Department on Sept. 5 after authorities issued a warrant for his arrest on suspicion of aggravated sexual assault of a child, department spokesman Terry Grisham said. Snow posted $25,000 bail and was released the same day.

The 69-year-old Snow, know as "The Snowman" during his racing days, is listed on the NHRA's Web site as one the top 50 drivers in the organization's history. He was the first Funny Car driver to break 200 mph and the first Top Fuel driver to travel a quarter-mile in less than 4 seconds, according to the site.

Snow's attorney, Bill Magnussen, did not immediately return calls Friday to The Associated Press.

Snow's arrest was first reported by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

A 17-year-old went to sheriff's investigators in July and said that Snow began molesting him when he was in the fifth grade, according to court documents.

The teen, who was not identified, said he believes that Snow drugged him at least once and had cut holes in the wall of his guest bedroom so he could watch the boy, the documents state.

The teen said Snow paid him for sexual favors $30 on a couple of occasions and the sexual abuse continued until recently.

Based on the teen's statement, Texas Rangers executed a search warrant in August and seized two computers, several sex toys, pornography and other items, according to court documents.

Snow has seven misdemeanor citations in Tarrant County for public lewdness and obscenity dating back to 1978. All were dismissed except for one public lewdness charge for which he paid a fine.
