Pulitzer award-winning novelist Cormac McCarthy‘s (No Country for Old Men, The Road) ex-wife Jennifer McCarthy is living out a story stranger than fiction. The Smoking Gun has a probable cause affidavit saying that 48-year-old Jennifer brandished a gun from vagina during a fight with her 53-year-old boyfriend over extraterrestrials at their home in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
The couple got into a heated argument about aliens, and then Jennifer left, according to the boyfriend. When she came home, he said she went to the bedroom, put on lingerie, and inserted the gun in her private area. At that point, the report says she asked him “Who is crazy, you or me?” and then pulled the gun out and pointed it at him.
Jennifer McCarthy admitted she “did have a gun at the time” of the argument. Luckily, the boyfriend got the gun away from her and put it in the toilet. Later he took it out of the toilet, and put it in a trash can outside where police found it. McCarthy received felony charge of aggravated assault on a household member, was booked into the county jail, and was released last Sunday after posting a $5000 bond.
Maybe her ex-husband can use some of this for material.
