NASCAR Star’s Defense For Beating Up GF: She's A Trained Assassin

Suzanne Robertson
Hmmm...has this NASCAR driver been around the track too many times?

There are some CRAZY "I'm innocent because...." claims out there: there's the Twinkie defense (junk food made me do it), a woman who claimed her breasts were too big for her to commit the crime and 'Affluenza' (being too rich to understand the law). 

Now, star NASCAR driver Kurt Busch, ironically known as "The Outlaw", testified that the ex-girlfriend he's accused of assaulting is a trained assassin. Camouflage gear, an evening gown splattered with blood and pictures of bodies with gunshot wounds were all mentioned in court. 

Busch is mounting a legal battle after girlfriend, Patricia Driscoll, claims he assaulted her by grabbing her by the throat and slamming her head into a wall three times. 

Busch denied that he beat her up and went on to claim that Driscoll was regularly dispatched on covert missions around the world and once told him, "I take down foreign governments. I own Washington."

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

Driscoll calls Busch’s belief “ludicrous,” saying he took it “straight from a fictional movie script” she has been working on for eight years and that he has proofread.

A court ruling on Driscoll's request for a no-contact order is expected later this month or in early February.
