Michael Brown Friend Who Witnessed Shooting Rebuts Wilson’s Version of Events

Dorian Johnson, the friend of Michael Brown‘s who was with him during his fatal encounter with Officer Darren Wilson, appeared on MSNBC earlier tonight to directly rebut the version of events Wilson relayed in his testimony about what happened.

Johnson told Hayes at the outset, “He could have done something different than kill my friend dead in the street.” Hayes remarked how Johnson’s account and Wilson’s are “remarkably consistent” in some areas and then widely different in others.

Johnson said that Wilson was hostile from the beginning and left out his attitude in interacting with him and Brown. He said that Brown and Wilson weren’t “wrestling” in the car, “it was tug of war.”

And the way Wilson recounts it, he chased Brown, only for Brown to turn around and charge at him. But Johnson says that Brown turned around and put his hand in his waistband to show Wilson that he wasn’t armed.
