Cue the Twilight Zone music.
Former NASCAR Cup Series champion Kurt Busch testified in court on Tuesday that he believes his ex-girlfriend Patricia Driscoll works as an assassin. Pictures of the alleged gun-for-hire confirm that she’s a femme fatale.
“Everybody on the outside can tell me I’m crazy,” Busch explains. “But I lived on the inside and saw it firsthand.”
The courtroom drama came over Patricia the Jackal’s request for a restraining order, which suggests she may be working under deep cover, or, alternatively, considering Busch’s testimony, that her request may not be terribly unreasonable. Agent 00-sexy alleges that Busch assaulted her in his trailer at the Dover International Speedway last year.
The driver, who competes in NASCAR and finished sixth in 2014’s Indianapolis 500, claims he witnessed Driscoll in El Paso leave in camouflage and return in a trench coat over a blood-drenched evening gown. Busch testified that she told him she takes down governments, works as a mercenary in Latin America and Africa, and inspired a character in the film Zero Dark Thirty.
The unlikely pair met at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. In an interview, Driscoll revealed that her grandfather “did all kinds of missions throughout the world and disappeared a lot. He was a really neat guy, always fascinating stories and I think that growing up as a kid it was something that very much interested me so I started my defense company which has provided a lot of solutions to the government on different aspects that I can’t talk about.”
Driscoll heads the Armed Forces Foundation and serves as the CEO of Frontline Defense Systems, whose website characterizes it as “a customized services company specifically designed to support the U.S. Govt. and commercial companies engaged in the Global War on Terror.” Her Wikipedia page currently describes her as a “businesswoman, philanthropist, socialite, assassin, and author.”
“These statements made about being a trained assassin, hired killer, are ludicrous and without basis and are an attempt to destroy my credibility,” Ms.
Booth Brutus Oswald Driscoll told the Associated Press. “Not even [Busch’s lawyer] Rusty Hardin believes this.”
