Evidence released Monday night in the Darren Wilson case included testimony from a witness who said that Michael Brown charged the police officer “like a football player. Head down.”
The handwritten account from the anonymous witness said that Brown “has his arms out with attitude,” while “The cop just stood there.” The witness added, “Dang if that kid didn’t start running right at the cop like a football player. Head down.”
The witness spoke of hearing “3 bangs” but “the big kid wouldn’t stop.”
This witnesses’ testimony supports Wilson’s account that Brown continued to charge him even after he was shot.
Wilson testified that he told the grand jury that he felt Brown’s “fingers try to get inside the trigger guard with my finger.” He added, “I distinctly remember envisioning a bullet going into my leg. I thought that was the next step.”
Wilson added that he was sure that Brown “would kill me if he gets ahold of my gun.” He said that the gunshot “kind of startled him and me at the same time” and that Brown then “looked up at me and had the most intense aggressive face.”
“The only way I can describe it, it looks like a demon. That’s how angry he looked,” Wilson added, saying that Brown then punched him twice in the face.
I felt like a five-year-old holding onto Hulk Hogan,” the cop said, talking about how big Brown was. “Hulk Hogan, that’s just how big he felt and how small I felt just from grasping his arm.”
