The four-day hearing over a no-contact order filed against NASCAR driver Kurt Busch took a bizarre turn on Tuesday, when Busch testified that his ex-girlfriend is a trained assassin.
Patricia Driscoll, Busch’s ex, has accused the 2004 NASCAR Cup champion of slamming her head three times against a bedroom wall in his motorhome at Dover International Speedway on Sept. 26. Busch and his legal team have denied the allegations, as have her Driscoll and her legal team regarding the assassin allegations.
Driscoll, 37, is president of the Armed Forces Foundation, a non-profit that supports active and retired members from all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. In 2010, the foundation partnered with NASCAR to form “Troops to the Track,” a program that hosts and celebrates service members at races. According to the foundation’s website, the program has expanded to 26 races across the country and honors more than 400 wounded service members, veterans and their families.
Driscoll also works for Frontline Defense Systems, a surveillance system company based in Washington, D.C. Her bio on the company’s website reads as follows:
In a YouTube video entitled “Pocket Commando,” Driscoll details her involvement with both companies, as well as her role as a parent with a young boy.
“I’m ‘Commando Mommy,’ as far as he’s concerned,” Driscoll says when describing her relationship with her son.
Warning: The video below features explicit language and adult themes.
Driscoll denied Busch’s assertions to the AP, calling the allegations of her being a trained assassin “ludicrous and without basis,” and saying, “Not even Rusty Hardin believes this,” referring to Busch’s attorney.
A court ruling on Driscoll’s request for the no-contact order is expected by early February. The allegations of Busch shoving Driscoll’s head into the wall are the subject of a separate criminal investigation.
