A Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) official has now testified in a defamation case against Johnny Depp’s ex-wife, Amber Heard. Police said he answered an emergency call at the ex-couple’s penthouse in LA on May 21, 2016.
However, he found no signs of physical abuse from Amber Heard.
The whole controversy began when Johnny’s ex-wife, Amber, wrote an opinion paper in The Washington Post about how she had become a victim of domestic violence.
Although he never mentioned Depp, the actor’s lawyers claimed it damaged his career and reputation. Pirates of the Caribbean then filed a $ 50 million defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife.
“I would sweep the suspect,” police Melissa Saenz said, according to Deadline. Saenz told the court that he and his partner were looking for two penthouses but could not find the suspect.
There were also signs of property damage. When lawyers asked about the red marks on Amber Heard’s face, Saenz said he looked “reddened” as if he had cried, but he had no physical injuries.
Police Melissa Saenz said directly, “I did not identify her (Heard) as a victim of domestic violence.
“We met the victim. We checked the location, the husband was not present and the victim said he had just quarrelled and he was not going to give us any further information.
Since we did not identify the crime, we gave him a business card stating that he could contact us later if he wanted to cooperate, Saenz said.
