Johnny Depp’s counsel is now taking over the questioning of LAPD officer Tyler Hadden, who was one of the officers on the scene on the night of 21 May 2016 – the night of the final row beteween Johnny Depp and Amber Heard before their break-up.
This took place at Depp’s penthouse at the Eastern Columbia Building in LA.
The officer tells the court he was about 10ft away from Heard when he saw her and did not have problems with his eyesight on that night as he was wearing his contact lenses.
Again, he tells the court he saw no signs of injuries or bruising, just the redness from crying. He says there was sufficient light and he could see clearly.
During the officers’ protective sweep of the LA penthouse, Mr Hadden says he did not see any broken glass that he remembers.
Asked if he was looking for signs of a disturbance, he says “yes” as this can happen during a domestic altercation.
He says he can not recall seeing any signs of damage or spilled wine.
Mr Hadden says he asked neighbour Josh Drew for details of “who the husband was” – referring to Depp, although he did not know this at the time. Again, he says Drew was not forthcoming with information.
Asked if he and his partner were in a hurry to close the incident, he says “no” and that they were willing to stay for as long as it took.
He says it would not be common practice to write a report on a “verbal dispute only”.
