Tapes from night of Foley shooting give differing stories

http://www.signonsandiego.com/sports/chargers/20060921-1718-bn21foley.html

SAN DIEGO – Audio tapes of investigators’ interviews following Chargers linebacker Steve Foley’s shooting reveal his companion and the off-duty Coronado officer who shot the football player gave differing accounts of the events that morning.

In the audio tapes, Lisa Marie Gaut, 25, is heard crying during an interview conducted hours after the Sept. 3 shooting with sheriff’s deputies who were investigating the incident.

She said Foley got out of his vehicle and yelled several times at the off-duty officer, Aaron Mansker, because he had been following them. She said the pair thought they were being pursued because he was a football player.

Tapes from night of Foley shooting give differing stories

I heard parts of the Mansker interview last night on KUSI. THe story sounds so forced and made up, he kept acting as if Foley was gonna kill him and he had no choice but to shoot Steve. HE even says at one point he suspected Foley of being hing on PCP. Please.

:rolleyes:x1.3billion

Tapes from night of Foley shooting give differing stories

He depicted Foley, who is 6-feet-4 and 265 pounds, as a defiant man who continued to approach him even after being shot in the knee.
Are we so close to Hollywood that we are asked to believe that Foley was shot in the knee, yet kept approaching the officer?

I call bull **** on this!

Anyone ever seen anyone move much with a bullet in their knee? Even the side?

Foley “went down. He got back up and said 'You just shot me in the knee.' Looked forward again, started walking towards my door, continued to dig in his waistband, turns towards me and I fired a couple more shots and he went down,” Mansker told investigators.
Buuuuuuuulllllll Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit!

This is unreal. How did this guy ever get a badge?

So he shoots Foley in the Knee according to his story. Foley gets up and continues to walk toward him? So please, someone explain how Foley got shot 2X in the BACK of the fuking leg? :icon_huh:

Foley “went down. He got back up and said 'You just shot me in the knee.' Looked forward again, started walking towards my door, continued to dig in his waistband, turns towards me and I fired a couple more shots and he went down,” Mansker told investigators.
Ok, so how does one walk toward someone and then turn towards them as well? :icon_huh:

Foley's lawyer is going to have a field day with that statement alone.

Hey Mansker, that light in the corner of your eye, is your career
dissipation light and it just went into high gear.

Prosecutors want judge to crack down
By Alex Roth
UNION-TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER
September 22, 2006

Investigators' taped interviews offer widely different versions


Prosecutors are upset about leaks in the Steve Foley case – and they want a judge to stop them.

At a hearing scheduled for 9:30 this morning, prosecutors intend to ask San Diego Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Fraser to crack down on whoever is leaking evidence to the media.

A spokeswoman for District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis said the leaks violate the state's rules of professional conduct for lawyers.

“It's our position that cases should be tried in the courtroom in order to give both parties – the people and the defense – the best shot at a fair trial,” Deputy District Attorney Katherine Flaherty said. “It's inappropriate to taint a jury pool by attempting to sway the court of public opinion.”

Today's hearing comes after a week in which various pieces of evidence have been leaked to the media, including photos, audiotaped interviews, dispatch transcripts and other evidence connected to the shooting of Foley, a Chargers linebacker.

A major bomb? Why do you think that?
I've mentioned it on another thread... and I hate to repeat it because I have no real proof (or at least something that I know is the truth). But here it is anyway...

A friend in a SD County Police Department has told me that Foley will more than likely end up losing his leg. They are discussing his options, but none of them look good. I definitely tend to believe her because she gave me all the details of the cop that shot Foley before it was even announced in the media. She is not part of the Coronado PD or the Poway PD.

What also gives this story some truth is the fact that everybody has been so silent about Foley's condition. Also it took the Chargers' medical staff all of an hour to declare him done for the season.

We'll see what comes out soon.

That would be horrible. NO other way to say it. So sad this incident. Very disturbing that a trigger happy cop went dirty harry because he's either nuts or just very stupid.

I don't know why they would let a cop with a vendetta against drunk drivers be on the road. You would think they would stick him to foot patrol or behind a desk?

Note: I forgot that he wasn't even in uniform and was off-duty at the time.

LE obviously leaked the BAC and the SW affidavit. Unless they're so blind they can't see that it hurts them [not an outlandish concept], I don't think LE leaked these tapes.

Edited to add: I've been listening to the Gaut tape a little bit - and boy do they grill her toward the end. Now I think maybe LE did leak the tapes. They probably think this favors them.
I won't be able to hear them. What are the main points that help/hurt each side?

I will do that Shamrock.

I really hope that it isn't true. Even if Foley's career is over, I hope he doesn't lose his leg.

I'm guessing the police department is doing everything and anything to try and lay some blame on foley. They know foley is going to sue the pants off them for their mishandling of this. Though I don't know how much trouble a police department can get into for possibly giving out wrong information to the cop. I'd have to guess the problem for them is the cover up they're trying to do now or that they were a long time finally getting to the foley incident which comes into question.

My question is why would the police department even think of trying to protect mankster. They'd be smart to just throw mankster under the bus and just plead they were not in the know.

Judge issues gag order after leaks about wounded pro linebacker

Associated Press
National Football League News Wire

SAN DIEGO -- A judge issued an order Friday barring
attorneys from publicly discussing any aspects of the case
involving the woman who was with San Diego Chargers linebacker
Steve Foley when he was shot by an off-duty police officer.

The gag ruling followed leaks of investigators' tapes,
photographs and documents. It prohibits attorneys, investigators
and parties in the case from speaking to media representatives, at
risk of being held in contempt of court.

"No leaks, no press conferences," San Diego Superior Court
Judge Jeffrey Fraser told the lawyers. He said he wanted to prevent
the case from becoming a "media circus."

Guylyn Cummins, a lawyer representing The Associated Press and
other media organizations, said Fraser's ruling was too broad.

"The law is pretty clear, but often in practice courts go way
beyond it, especially in high profile cases, and that's what's
happened here," Cummins said......................click on the mother fugger fo mo' :icon_mrgreen: :bolt: :foley53: :bolt: :foley53: :bolt: :foley53:

Any time an officer justifies discharging his weapon by saying "the suspect reached into his waist band", the officer has NO credibility if it turns out the 'suspect' had no gun in said waistband.

Foley may be the first person ever shot for 'adjusting' himself... :icon_banana:
