Domestic dispute about space aliens gets totally weird

Jenny McCarthy

A New Mexico couple started their morning arguing about space aliens, which isn’t so odd considering the conspiracy theory surrounding Roswell, New Mexico, but by the time the woman had donned lingerie and performed a sex act on a gun, it became bizarre enough to have been a scene taken from a neo-avantgarde film by Fellini.

On January 4, 2014, artist, and it seems free spirit, Jennifer McCarthy, 48, the former wife of none other than Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Cormac McCarthy, author of No Country for Old Men, was involved in a domestic dispute with her new beau.

At first she started poking him repeatedly with her finger to annoy him, he pushed her away by putting his hand on her neck, and she walked out. When she returned later, however, McCarthy wasn’t done arguing.

According to the statement of probable cause, police responded to the call at about 10:52 that morning and first spoke with McCarthy, who told them what has already been stated here. Then the officer spoke with the boyfriend, who told them that when McCarthy came back she went into the bedroom and changed into some lingerie. She came out with a chrome plated pistol in her vagina, which she started to have sex with while saying, “Who is crazy, you or me?”

Perhaps her boyfriend gave the obvious answer, ‘Why, you are dear!’ because she pulled out the gun and pointed it at his head. He told police that at that time he feared for his life so he took the gun away and threw it in the toilet. When it became clear that she intended to retrieve it, he threw the gun into the trashcan outside.

Police retrieved the gun from the trash and arrested McCarthy for aggravated assault on a household member.  It is not clear if drugs and alcohol were involved, or merely two free spirits.
