I thought that was probably a pretty good place to look. It was within that scrunched up piece of paper on the tiled floor at the end of the bar.”

“Blood was just pouring out. And at that point I think that I went into some sort of…
“Nothing made sense. And I knew in my mind and in my heart… this is not life. This is not life. No one should have to go through this.”
Asked what Heard had said after seeing the injury, he said he could not recall exactly, just “white noise… yelling, just a high-pitched, constant attack of insults. Just jumbled words to me in a very high frequency… I was in shock.”
Depp admitted lying to doctors about what happened, telling them he had caught it in accordion doors.
