“Pirates of the Caribbean” actor Johnny Depp‘s trial showed Bodycam Footage of his ex-wife Amber Heard which might lead her to end up in Jail. A pivotal moment occurred in the courtroom during the defamation trial that is ongoing between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.
The court in the trial between Johnny Depp and ex-wife Amber Heard showed body camera footage from LAPD officers who received a domestic violence call at the LA penthouse Owned by Johnny Depp where Ms. Heard was staying on 21 May 2016.
A Body camera footage was played in court on Wednesday. Two LAPD officers were brought in to testify, specifically on an incident that took place on May 21, 2016, which showed him and his partner knocking on the door of the penthouse.
Amber Heard had previously claimed that it was the night in which Depp beat her and was the event that subsequently led to their divorce in 2016. The two officers reported to the scene, after they had been called a second time, and were told it was a situation of domestic abuse. However, one of the officers on the scene, Officer William Gaitlin, claimed that he did not see “any verifiable injuries to her.”
Now the question is what really happened in the Bodycam video which is currently seen as proof of truth in the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard case.
The bodycam footage seems to show an unnamed man answering the door, and speaking to the officers on the scene about what had happened. The officers enter the apartment to ensure that everyone is ok, and Amber Heard is shown in the dark on the couch. She claims that everything is ok, and she does not need any medical assistance or any other assistance from the officers on the scene. The officers also ask, “Is Johnny here?” to which the unnamed man responds “he is definitely not here.” The officers then left the apartment. The testimony by Officer Gaitlin was that Heard had no injuries at the time of this call and was completely fine and refused any medical assistance and had no visible injuries.
While Heard’s lawyers also began their cross-examination, asking the officers questions like why they did not ask Heard to step into better lighting so that they could examine her further. Her lawyers also questioned why there had been no filed police report taken by either officer. The man who answered the door had only given the officers a business card and sent them on their way. They argued that the officers had not followed proper procedure, and had only written a verbal ‘ok’ stating that Miss Heard was not hurt at any danger, and not completely examining whether she was in a great state or not.
While all these allegations are put forward in this video, it is proved that there is not any single reference of Johnny Depp physically abusing Heard in this body cam footage, which can also lead Miss Heard to Jail.
Depp sued Heard after she wrote an op-ed piece in The Washington Post in 2018 referring to herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.” The article doesn’t mention Depp by name, but his lawyers say the article defames him and his position in the Industry nevertheless because it’s a clear reference to the highly publicized allegations Heard made when she filed for divorce in 2016 and obtained a temporary restraining order as well.
