SHE ENDED UP ON HER -- SHE ENDED UP FALLING. SHE ENDED UP ON HER ELBOWS AND ON HER BUTT. THEN SHE -- HE THREW ED MCCABE OUT. WE WERE ALL SITTING THERE SCREAMING AND CRYING, AND THEN HE GRABBED ME AND THREW ME OUT OF THE HOUSE.

******

MR. DARDEN: MISS BROWN, WHEN WE LEFT OFF LAST FRIDAY YOU TOLD US ABOUT THE CROTCH GRABBING INCIDENT AT THE RED ONION. DO YOU RECALL THAT?

AND THE ONLY THING I REMEMBER IS THAT IT WAS -- HE LOOKED SO -- HIS WHOLE FACIAL STRUCTURE CHANGED. EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM CHANGED.

MR. DARDEN: LET ME STOP YOU THERE.

MR. SHAPIRO: YOUR HONOR, WE WOULD OBJECT. THAT IS NONRESPONSIVE.

THE COURT: ALL RIGHT. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE WITNESS' COMMENTS REGARDING FACIAL STRUCTURING AND CHANGE OF EXPRESSION IS STRICKEN FROM THE RECORD AND IT WAS NOT IN RESPONSE TO THE QUESTION. YOU ARE TO DISREGARD THAT ANSWER.
MR. DARDEN.

MS. BROWN: YES, I DID.

MR. DARDEN: OKAY. AND WHAT, IF ANYTHING, UNUSUAL DID YOU NOTICE ABOUT HIS FACE AT THAT TIME?

MS. BROWN:  AT THAT TIME HE GOT VERY UPSET AND HE STARTED SCREAMING.

MR. DARDEN: NOW, WAS HIS ANGER MANIFESTED IN ANY WAY OTHER THAN THE FACT THAT HE BECAME -- OTHER THAN THE FACT THAT HE BEGAN SCREAMING?

MS. BROWN: YEAH. HIS WHOLE FACIAL STRUCTURE CHANGED. I MEAN, EVERYTHING CHANGED ABOUT HIM.

MR. DARDEN: OKAY. WHEN YOU SAY HIS FACIAL STRUCTURE CHANGED, WHAT DO YOU MEAN? ELABORATE ON THAT FOR US, PLEASE.

MS. BROWN: IT WAS CALM, QUIET, NORMAL CONVERSATION, LIKE WE WERE SITTING HERE RIGHT NOW, AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN IT TURNED INTO -- THE EYES GOT REAL ANGRY. IT WAS AS -- HIS WHOLE JAW, EVERYTHING STARTED, YOU KNOW -- HIS WHOLE FACE JUST CHANGED COMPLETELY WHEN HE GOT UPSET.  UMM -- IT WASN'T AS IF IT WAS O.J. ANY MORE. HE LOOKED LIKE A DIFFERENT PERSON AND THAT IS WHAT NICOLE HAD ALWAYS SAID WHEN HE GETS ANGRY.

MR. DARDEN: LET ME STOP YOU THERE.

MR. SHAPIRO: MOTION TO STRIKE AS NONRESPONSIVE.

THE COURT: ALL RIGHT.  LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, YOU ARE TO DISREGARD THE LAST PORTION OF THE ANSWER, COMMENTS AS TO WHAT NICOLE HAD SAID ABOUT THE DEFENDANT'S BEHAVIOR OR FACIAL STRUCTURE.
MISS BROWN
