The ex-girlfriend of NASCAR driver Kurt Busch is facing allegations of mishandling of funds by both the FBI and the IRS according to reports published Friday.  Patricia Driscoll dated Busch for several years before the two spilt last year. After the estrangement, Driscoll accused Busch of domestic battery.

According to Driscoll while NASCAR was at Dover International Speedway during the weekend of September 26-28 last year she confronted Busch in his motor home and the end result was that Busch put his hands on her and pushed her.  In November, Driscoll reported the incident to police and filed for the protective order at the same time 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 asked a Delaware court 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 several January 13. The protective order was granted by the court on February 16 of this year.

Busch was suspended by NASCAR four days later. MORE>>>
