(CNN) – Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels received 16 stitches to his forehead after being struck by a door after a workout Friday, his office said.
After finishing a workout at an Indianapolis gym, the potential 2012 presidential candidate was standing near a door that suddenly swung open and struck him. Daniels was transported to a nearby hospital, treated, and released.
The governor is currently recovering at home, his office said.
His spokeswoman Jane Jankowski confirmed to CNN that the governor told her he "uttered a creative expletive" when the accident occurred. He did not provide any further details on the exact nature.
At the hospital Daniels, known for his penny-pinching ways and sense of humor, asked the doctor if he was going to be charged for each of the stitches he was receiving, Jankowski said. He was assured he would not be.
"He seems to be doing fine and is in good spirits," she told CNN.
As of now there are no plans for him to change his schedule next week, which includes a visit to Washington for a fiscal summit and a Republican fundraisers as well as attending festivities related to the Indianapolis 500 race.
