Exploring the mind of psychopathic killers can be a tricky business. On Wednesday, a Rockford Files episode that is yet to air was blown open by the Associated Press:

NASCAR driver says ex is trained assassin

“The NASCAR driver known as “The Outlaw” said he believes his ex-girlfriend is a trained assassin who was dispatched on covert missions around the world [and] once returned to him in a blood-splattered gown”

The AP WIRE used to be a decent source of intelligence, back in the day before all stories had been filtered and vetted … you could pick up the raw product from reporters filing stories from the field.

Kurt Busch appeared in court again Tuesday over Patricia Driscoll’s request for a no-contact order

Ok, so right off, Rockford would have a question … here is the “trained assassin” trying to get a restraining order on her boyfriend … why is this story ‘bass-ackwards’ from the get go? Shouldn’t it be ‘the outlaw’ would want his ‘trained assassin’ girlfriend to be staying away from him?

[Busch stated] “Everybody on the outside can tell me I’m crazy, but I lived on the inside and saw it firsthand” [when] questioned why he … believed Driscoll is a hired killer

NASCAR driver. Tenacity. Varrooom! Noise. The chase. Trophies. And lots of amphetamines. Because, you know, the adrenal glands had burnt out long ago. Viagra. Because what the amphetamines had reduced to thimble-sized nubbin, needs re-inflated. Amphetamines, Benzedrine tablets & Viagra bottles fill the nightstand drawer with a false bottom. Rockford experiences an involuntary laugh at the discovery.

Driscoll called Busch’s assertion “ludicrous,” saying he took it “straight from a fictional movie script”

Ok, so killer girlfriend denies the blood-splattered gown is hers. Possibly the ‘outlaw’ is a cross-dresser … perhaps not splattered with blood but with ketchup? Sloppy eater of Italian red sauce? Related, amphetamine induced paranoid fantasies?

In court, Busch continued the push of his legal team to discredit his ex as a scorned woman out to destroy his career, portraying her as a character fit for a screenplay

It’s the AP WIRE is the screenplay in this day and age:

Busch said Driscoll repeatedly asserted her assassin status and claimed the work took her on missions across Central and South America and Africa. 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

The MKULTRA-esque “trained assassin” girlfriend is the one trying for the restraining order. Wouldn’t it make more sense from the ‘outlaw’ point of view, to be paying her to stay away from him? What’s the fatal attraction angle in play here? Man claims assassin girlfriend returns bloodied from mission, girlfriend want man to stay away from her, he fights her stated desire to stay away,  despite this claim:

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

Rockford gags at what seems to be a blood & feces coated french tickler in the outlaw’s bathroom waste bin. Talk about violated bodies.

Busch said Tuesday that Driscoll had claimed that a female character in “Zero Dark Thirty,” a film depicting the CIA’s hunt for Osama bin Laden, was a composite of her and other women

Uh-oh. Suddenly the crazy chick’s alleged storyline has element of consistency. Anywhere Alfreda Bikowsky is introduced into the screenplay, all far-fetched fantasies must be reexamined.

[A witness states] Driscoll also asserted that she was a trained assassin for the U.S. government and once told him, “I take down foreign governments. I own Washington”

Let’s look at this a bit more closely. The NASCAR driver’s femme fatale wants him to stay away. If 10% of what she’s alleged to have said to now is true, he should praising almighty god this were the case. Instead, he’s fighting the order and pissing her off. Who’s crazy here?

During the hearing, which stretched over four days, neither Driscoll nor her attorney refuted the testimony

The femme fatale no doubt rolled her eyes in court … because out of court she told Associated Press gossip columnist Randall Chase:

“These statements made about being a trained assassin, hired killer, are ludicrous and without basis and are an attempt to destroy my credibility,” Driscoll said.

Rockford reflects on  that and it occurs to him if she’d just keep her mouth shut, the outlaw has done everything he needs to destroy his own credibility, with gusto. But the killer girlfriend keeps talking:

“I find it interesting that some of the outlandish claims come straight from a fictional movie script I’ve been working on for eight years,” Driscoll added.

Ok, so eight years spent on a screenplay. Sounds like a Cecil B DeMille epic style biography of Sisyphus, directed by Stanley Kubric who never settled for less 100 takes on any single scene. Killer chick’s script should be produced and in your local movie theater by the time Western Civilization is an archaeology dig.

Busch testified Monday that he decided to end his relationship with Driscoll after a race last fall because she was monopolizing his schedule and he needed to focus on racing

Sounds like the amphetamines were overpowering the Viagra. Or the ‘trophy babe’ didn’t like taking it in the ass. See, this is precisely what’s wrong with the women attracted to the NASCAR types. People who chase the NASCAR circuit are acting out whatever intelligence it is in humans that’s identical to whatever instinct drives dogs to chase cars. A smart woman engaging in fantasy for any court would make up sex abuse claims, because that crosses prurient amorality, and in America, prurient amorality is a clear cut winner. So, she’s not making her stuff up because she’s not particularly bright. Or she’s not particularly bright and she’s making up the wrong stuff.

Driscoll said Busch assaulted her in his motorhome at Dover International Speedway a week later, grabbing her by the throat and slamming her head into a wall three times. Busch and his attorneys have denied the allegations, which are the subject of a separate criminal investigation. Driscoll’s attorney cross-examined Busch on Tuesday, but few of her questions dealt directly with the assault allegations

Here we are again: Man claims girlfriend is bona fide killer, but he is fighting an order demanding him to stay away from her. Somehow it all fits. Who is crazy and who is stupid here? If his testimony about her assassin credentials are correct, he wouldn’t be in court, he’d be laid out at the morgue.

Busch has testified that he repeatedly told Driscoll to leave after she showed up unannounced at his motorhome, finally cupping her cheeks in his hands, looking her in the eye and telling her she had to go

Then stop fighting the freaking order to stay away from her, enough already. Tell the judge you welcome it and ask it be made mutual, end of story. But that wouldn’t make good soap opera for the Associated Press.

“He advised that her head tapped the wall as he was doing that,” [a detective testified] Tuesday, recounting Busch’s interview with Dover police in November

Outlaw just shot himself in the foot. Rockford’s client the crazy chick’s testimony is more consistent with reality and Busch allows he’d laid his hands on her in an abusive manner that cannot be construed to be with her permission and what is a ‘tap’? Something like a Catholic nun cracking a student’s fingers with a ruler?

Richard Andrew Sniffen, a Christian music minister who performs at NASCAR outreach events and befriended Busch and Driscoll, said Driscoll told him on the night of the alleged assault only that Busch had pushed her and that she hit her head. Sniffen said Driscoll was upset, angry and brokenhearted, but that she never said she was afraid of Busch and seemed intent on reconciling

And Rockford suddenly understands what it means to be ‘sniffin’ around dysfunctional relationships involving NASCAR personalities:

That attitude shifted in the weeks that followed, Sniffen said, with Driscoll going “from a broken heart looking for love and reconciliation to anger and a little bit of revenge”

Acting on crazy chick’s tip, the body Rockford finds in the outlaw’s closet is wearing a pizza sauce-splattered gown; a badly disheveled, fully inflated, severely abused ‘Jill’ blow-up love doll, sans any evidence of feminine hygiene. Sniffin can turn up some unpleasant odors. All of the doll’s three orifices had been violated and left fouled.

“I will destroy him,” Sniffen said Driscoll told him, adding that she repeatedly said she would take Busch down

And in the end, the MKULTRA-Alfreda-Bikowsky-I-own-Washington-CIA-assassin-chick described by Busch, ran to the judge for a restraining order instead of killing her outlaw with a stiletto. Meanwhile, Rockford’s confidential report has been presented to the judge.

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