NASCAR driver Kurt Busch has been a news topic for the last few months, and for all the wrong reasons. This week he was in a courtroom in Delaware at a hearing stemming from an alleged domestic incident. The original incident made headlines late last year when allegations of domestic assault surfaced between Busch and his former girlfriend Patricia Driscoll. The incident occurred while NASCAR was at Dover International Speedway during the weekend of Sept. 26-28. Driscoll, filed for a court order of protection alleging that Busch was verbally abusive and that he wished he “had a gun so he could kill himself.”
As a result of the incident Driscoll has asked that Busch,36, be evaluated by a psychiatrist and that he stay away from her and her son and that a protective order be issued. The hearing for that protective order wrapped up Tuesday and the testimony can only be considered bizarre. Among the allegations from Busch, given under oath, was that Driscoll a trained assassin and that she, among other things, in the inspiration for one of the female characters in a major motion picture about the assassination of Osama Bin Laden.
Driscoll denied the allegations shortly after the hearing and it seemed that Busch’s testimony was treated in the media as the ranting’s of a jilted lover. However, when looking at the background of Ms. Driscoll it becomes apparent that she isn’t exactly a stay a home soccer mom. While she has been a great advocate for veterans, Driscoll also has an extensive background in law enforcement including some experience in tactical methods and training. She is an executive with Frontline Defense Systems LLC, a customized services company specifically designed to support the U.S. Govt. and commercial companies engaged in the Global War on Terror.
