Okay. Patricia Driscoll, 37, of Ellicott City requested a no-contact order against NASCAR driver and ex-boyfriend Kurt Busch, related to claims of domestic violence. In his testimony disputing the need for the order, Busch asserted that Driscoll “is a trained assassin dispatched on covert missions around the world,” according to the Associated Press.

Here’s more from AP:

“He recounted one time when the couple was in El Paso, Texas. He said Driscoll left in camouflage gear only to return later wearing a trench coat over an evening gown covered with blood.

“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.”

Neither Driscoll nor her attorney refuted the assassin claim (a claim echoed by a former personal assistant to the couple) during the four-day hearing, but in a telephone interview with AP, Driscoll called it “ludicrous and without basis.”

Driscoll said Busch assaulted her a week after he ended their relationship, “grabbing her by the throat and slamming her head into a wall three times.” Busch denies it.
