claims former girlfriend is aN assassin

DOVER, DELAWARE – In what has to be among sport’s most bizarre recent court proceedings,  NASCAR driver Kurt Busch testified this week that his former girlfriend, Patricia Driscoll, is a trained assassin.

Busch delivered testimony in court Tuesday, appearing in connection with a no-contact request made by Driscoll.

Delaware News-Journal’s recap of the hearing:

BUSCH-KURT-180-2NASCAR driver Kurt Busch was described by his ex-girlfriend, Patricia Driscoll, as someone struggling with alcoholism and depression the night he erupted into a rage and smashed her face into the bedroom wall of his motorhome.

Attorneys for Busch described Driscoll as a mercenary who was an unbelievable storyteller, and a public relations professional who was bent on trying to destroy the driver’s career.

“Why don’t you just call a press conference and say every bad thing you can about him,” said Rusty Hardin, Busch’s attorney.

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

Driscoll denied being an assassin and said that Busch’s attorney, Rusty Hardin, couldn’t possibly believe them himself:

“These statements made about being a trained assassin, hired killer, are ludicrous and without basis and are an attempt to destroy my credibility,” said Driscoll.

“Not even Rusty Hardin believes this. I find it interesting that some of the outlandish claims come straight from a fictional movie script I’ve been working on for eight years.

A decision on the case is expected to be made by the end of the month or in the beginning of February.
