David DePape

911 audio and police bodycam footage of the Paul Pelosi hammer attack was aired at David DePape’s preliminary hearing on Wednesday.

According to reports, David DePape entered the Pelosis’ San Francisco home in October in the middle of the night looking for Nancy Pelosi.

“[DePape] told officers and medics at the scene — “I’m sick of the insane f…ing level of lies coming out of Washington, D.C. I came here to have a little chat with his wife. I didn’t really want to hurt him, but you know this was a suicide mission. I’m not going to stand here and do nothing even if it cost me my life.”” CBS reported.

Things escalated and David DePape reportedly hit Paul Pelosi in the head with a hammer.

Partial transcript of the audio was released by reporters.

According to a court reporter for NBC, the tv monitor was facing the SFPD officer on the stand so most people in court couldn’t see the actual video, but could only hear audio.

Here is the timeline of the attack, per a reporter for NBC who listened to the audio:

CBS News reported:

Using 911 audio, police body cam video and investigators sworn testimony, prosecutors meticulously pieced together the terrifying attack of Paul Pelosi at the preliminary hearing Wednesday of his accused assailant David DePape.

Wearing an orange jumpsuit, DePape sat at the defense table. In the crowded courtroom was Christine Pelosi, one of the Pelosis’ five adult children.

The hearing got off to a quick start with prosecutors playing audio of Paul Pelosi’s 911 call to San Francisco police.

The audio recording was followed by one of the SFPD officers — officer Kyle Cagney — who responded to the home taking the stand and describing the doorway confrontation with DePape and the swift hammer attack. He then displayed the hammer to the courtroom, pulling it from a large evidence pouch.

Cagney also reviewed police body camera video with the Superior Court Judge Stephen Murphy.

“When officers arrived on scene, they encountered an adult male and Mrs. Pelosi’s husband, Paul,” SFPD Chief Bill Scott told reporters. “Our officers observed Mr. Pelosi and the suspect both holding a hammer. The suspect pulled the hammer away from Mr. Pelosi and violently assaulted him with it.”

“Our officers immediately tackled the suspect, disarmed him, took him into custody, requested emergency backup and rendered medical aid,” he added.

Along with the hammer, DePape also had zip ties, which he admitted to having so he could take Nancy Pelosi hostage.

He had allegedly forced his way into the home by smashing the window of a rear door.
