An early-moring attack that left singer Gavin DeGraw hospitalized has sparked a police investigation, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

DeGraw, best known for his hit song “I Don’t Want to Be” — the theme song for CW’s “One Tree Hill” — was reportedly assaulted by three men early Monday in the street outside his New York club, the National Underground. A short time later, he was hit by a taxi 13 blocks away.

The ordeal left DeGraw, 34, with facial cuts and a broken nose, along with a concussion. He was treated at Bellevue Hospital, remaining there Tuesday in stable condition. Police said the injuries were not life threatening.

Said a rep for DeGraw: "Police are conducting an investigation of the attack. 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.”

DeGraw did cancel a concert appearance that was slated for Tuesday night in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.
