NASCAR's Kurt Busch Claims Ex-Girlfriend Is Trained Assassin
NASCAR's Kurt Busch Claims Ex-Girlfriend Is Trained Assassin

In November, the ex-girlfriend of NASCAR driver Kurt Busch accused him of assault. And, in court proceedings this week, Busch testified with an unexpected accusation.

According to The Delaware News Journal, Busch told a Dover, Delaware family court his ex-girlfriend, Patricia Driscoll, is a trained assassin.

The outlet says Busch claims she's "had experience killing drug lords via long-range sniper rifles and close combat tactics – including the use of knives and poison."

The 36-year-old former NASCAR champion also reportedly said Driscoll went out on secret mercenary missions across Central and South America and Africa.

Busch reportedly gave one detailed account of Driscoll leaving in camouflaged garb and returning wearing an evening gown covered in blood stains underneath a trench coat.

The News Journal says she denied those accusations Tuesday, and the outlet also says Busch mentioned it in an attempt to disprove the assault allegations she made against him in November.

Driscoll claims he slammed her head multiple times against a wall inside his motorhome late September while at a racing event. Shortly after, she asked for a protective order against him. Busch, meanwhile, has repeatedly denied that he physically abused her.

"I'm not a regular mom. I don't drive a minivan, and I have two jobs," Patricia Driscoll said.

It's worth noting Driscoll is the head of two companies that, as Deadspin points out, "makes Busch's assassin claims seem at least vaguely plausible."

One is called Armed Forces Foundation. It's a non-profit that provides support for wounded veterans. The other is Frontline Defense Systems, where her short website bio says she "spent the majority of her career in the narcotics and intelligence world."

The commissioner presiding over the case says he'll weigh in on Driscoll's protective order request after both sides submit closing arguments in writing. He's given the attorneys two weeks to do so.
