NASCAR driver Kurt Busch‘s career was finally looking up again in 2014 — at least until he found himself up against a trained assassin.
The 2004 NASCAR Cup Champion was testifying this week in a case brought by his ex-girlfriend, who is asking the court to grant a protection order against him, Fox News reported. Patricia Driscoll, a 37-year-old defense contractor, accused Busch of assaulting her last September in his motor home at the track.
Things took a strange turn Tuesday when Busch testified that he believes Driscoll is a trained assassin who goes on covert missions around the world, saying she returned from one such outing wearing a blood-splattered gown, according to Fox News.
“Everybody on the outside can tell me I’m crazy, but I lived on the inside and saw it firsthand,” he said, when asked by his attorney about his ex-girlfriend being a hired killer.
Fox News added:
A day earlier, Busch said his ex-girlfriend told him she was a mercenary who killed people for a living and had shown him pictures of bodies with gunshot wounds.
Busch said Tuesday that Driscoll had claimed that a female character in “Zero Dark Thirty,” a film depicting the CIA’s hunt for Osama bin Laden, was a composite of her and other women.
In addition, Michael Doncheff, a personal assistant who worked for Busch, said that Driscoll claimed to be a trained assassin for the U.S. government and once told him, “I take down foreign governments. I own Washington,” according to Fox News.
As you might expect from a possible trained assassin, Driscoll said Busch’s claim is “ludicrous,” saying it’s a fabrication he took “straight from a fictional movie script” she has been working on. She said he proofread the script.
“These statements made about being a trained assassin, hired killer, are ludicrous and without basis and are an attempt to destroy my credibility,” she told The Associated Press.
Nicknamed “The Outlaw,” Busch endured several tough years in the sport after he was caught on camera verbally assaulting a reporter. He was just beginning to get things back on track when Driscoll charged that he slammed her head against the bedroom wall of his motor home at Dover International Speedway.
Busch and his attorney, Rusty Hardin, deny the accusation and counter that Driscoll is a jilted lover who wants to destroy the driver’s reputation.
Richard Andrew Sniffen, a Christian music minister who knew the couple, said after they split up Driscoll’s attitude went “from a broken heart looking for love and reconciliation to anger and a little bit of revenge.”
“I will destroy him,” Driscoll said, according to Sniffen.
