Jennifer McCarthy 'Pulled Gun Out Of Vagina After Fight Over Space Aliens'

Santa Fe County Jail
Jennifer McCarthy was charged with aggravated assault on a household member

UPDATE: The Smoking Gun reveals McCarthy is the ex-wife of Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Cormac McCarthy, author of The Road and No Country For Old Men.

Are vaginas getting roomier? Or are guns getting smaller?

Because today brings news of yet another weapon being reportedly concealed in a lady’s private parts.

In this case, one Jennifer McCarthy is accused of pulling a gun – out of you know where – and holding it to her partner’s head, following a row over (what else?) space aliens.

The 48-year-old was arrested on Saturday and charged with aggravated assault on a household member.

The Albuquerque Journal has a full account of the incident, but in the meantime, lets refresh our memories with some other cases.

As well as (sometimes loaded) weapons, these handy vaginas have also been used to conceal drugs and other contraband.

Last month Ericka Marie Danna was caught trying to smuggle a marijuana pipe into jail – via her vagina – after being arrested in Oklahoma City

Earlier that same month we brought you the news that Jeana Marie Smart was charged with felony drug possession after police responding to a car crash discovered she had a broken (ouch) meth pipe hidden in her vagina.

And who could forget Christie Dawn Harris’s somewhat astonishing feat of concealing a loaded .22-caliber revolver in hers, as well as a bag of crystal meth between her buttocks.

Have the results of cavity searches always been this diverse?
