NASCAR's Kurt Busch Testifies That Ex-Girlfriend Is An Assassin

Testifying about a request for a protective order against him, race car driver Kurt Busch told a Dover, Del., court this week that his former girlfriend is an assassin. Patricia Driscoll, who dated Busch for four years, requested the order last November, shortly after their relationship ended.

Driscoll has also filed a criminal complaint against Busch, alleging that he grabbed her and slammed her head into the wall of his motor coach at Dover International Speedway last fall. Busch denies those claims, which the authorities have been considering separately.

Those circumstances brought about four days of testimony from Busch and Driscoll that almost certainly stands unique among anything ever heard in a family court.

The former NASCAR Sprint Cup champion, 36, said that Driscoll "is a trained assassin dispatched on covert missions around the world," The Associated Press reports. The news agency adds: "Busch said Driscoll repeatedly asserted her assassin status and claimed the work took her on missions across Central and South America and Africa."

"Everybody on the outside can tell me I'm crazy, but I lived on the inside and saw it firsthand," Busch said.

From USA Today:
Busch offered up specific examples of her returning from missions, sometimes with bruises.

Once, he said, they were in El Paso, Texas, where Driscoll had left that night in camouflage and boots. She returned later to the hotel at which he was staying wearing a trench coat. Under it she was wearing an evening gown splattered with blood and other matter, Busch testified.

Those details add to a picture that was painted earlier, when Busch and others testified "that Driscoll claimed she was a trained assassin who had killed people, including drug lords," the AP reported Monday.

Busch and his attorney, Rusty Hardin, are holding up Driscoll's status as a mercenary to refute her claims that she was abused.

"I know that she could take me down at any moment," Busch told his attorney Monday, "because she's a bad-ass."

Local TV station WBOC notes, "Neither Driscoll nor her attorney refuted testimony about her telling people she was a trained assassin."

Driscoll, 37, lives in Ellicott City, Md. She heads two organizations, both of them based in Washington, D.C. One is the Armed Forces Foundation, a veterans advocacy group that partners with NASCAR. The other is Frontline Defense Systems, whose website says Driscoll "spent the majority of her career in the narcotics and intelligence world."

A trench coat AND evening gown!?

That is just tacky. One or the other, not both.

Obviously she deserved a little smacking around.

Saw In His Own Write by John Lennon on the shelf at the Jefferson branch library and brought it home. The cover boasted of a new introduction by Yoko Ono. I'm going to waste Andy's bandwidth and quote the entire thing here -

Hi! My name is Yoko Ono.
I'd like you to meet John Lennon.

Whew! That was a lot to digest in one sitting. I wonder if she used a ghost writer.

As far as the rest of the book goes, it's thin but there's less to it than one would expect. It took about twenty minutes to get through half of it. I'm not sure if I'll finish it or just put it aside and start on the Henry Miller book I checked out. Cross to Book Reviews and Plans and, if Miller doesn't disappoint, Perverted PDJ..
