SANTA FE, NM – A fight about aliens ends with a woman pulling a gun on her boyfriend but she didn’t pull it from a holster.
The Albuquerque Journal reported police arrested 48-year-old Jennifer McCarthy, Pulitzer Prize winning author Cormac McCarthy’s ex-wife, after she allegedly pulled the pistol from her private parts and threatened her boyfriend.
According to the affidavit, McCarthy got in an argument with her 53-year-old lover and left her Santa Fe home.
Documents state she returned, changed into lingerie and completed the ensemble with a silver Smith and Wesson hidden inside her body, with which she began to have “inner course,” [sic].
Then McCarthy asked her boyfriend, “Who is crazy, you or me,” before removing the gun from her body cavity and pointing it at his head, according to the Albuquerque Journal.
Police said the boyfriend told them he took the gun from McCarthy because he was afraid she would shoot him.
Authorities said he went to the bathroom and put the gun in the toilet.
The Albuquerque Journal reported when McCarthy tried to retrieve the gun, her boyfriend took it from the toilet and put it in the trash outside.
Authorities found the gun and arrested McCarthy for aggravated assault.
McCarthy admitted to police she had an argument with her boyfriend and that she had a gun but said it had been “missing for a while.”
