The ex-wife of the author Cormac McCarthy was arrested for threatening her boyfriend with a gun she pulled out of her vagina after an argument about extra-terrestrial life. Jennifer McCarthy is alleged to have performed a sex act with the Smith and Wesson before pointing it at her boyfriend’s head, according to a police statement filed in court in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
She was arrested on Saturday morning following the incident and held at the Santa Fe County jail on a charge of aggravated assault. She was released on $5,000 bail, according to the Albuquerque Journal. Jennifer, 48, has one child with Cormac McCarthy, 80, who won the Pulitzer Prize in 2007 for his apocalyptic novel The Road, which was made into a film starring Viggo Mortensen & Charlize Theron. Miss McCarthy’s boyfriend, who has not been named, said the couple had been arguing about ‘space aliens’ when she ran out of the house, but then returned, went to her bedroom and changed into her lingerie, before performing a sex act with the gun.
Before taking the gun and pointing it at his head, she then said:
“Who is crazy, you or me?”
(At this point, it sounds like YOU, Jennifer.) Fearing she was about to pull the trigger, her boyfriend then took the gun away. He then put the gun in the toilet and when McCarthy went to get the gun, he then put it outside in the trash. She has acknowledged that she had argued with her boyfriend and that they…
“had yelled at each other and he told her not to touch him again.”
She also admitted to owning a gun but maintained it had been…
“missing for a while.”
Oh, THAT’S where it is!? Ladies, when you can’t find your car keys or your gun, FIRST look in the fridge, then check your vagina. (via The Independent)
