A confrontation with Knight in which he calls her a “bitch” and tells someone to get her camera was recorded on a video recorder she wore around her neck.
Redden said she never recovered her professional camera, which was taken by a woman who attacked her and Williams.
Knight is also seen on the video approaching Redden before she takes off running. “I just remember looking at his eyes and realizing it was getting very dangerous,” Redden testified Tuesday.
