From a police officer’s bodycam, the video shows Ndoye calling her then-husband as a first-rate actor who’s “phenomenal at putting on a really good show.” However, no charges were filed against Warnock as medics could find any signs of visible injury to Ndoye’s foot.
Per the Daily Caller:
The pastor and Democratic U.S. Senate candidate was not charged with a crime after police found no damage to his wife’s foot. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution first reported on the incident in March as Warnock was just beginning his Senate campaign.
In the video, Warnock denies running over Ndoye’s foot and tells police that disputes between them have escalated as they were at the time in the process of getting a divorce, Fox News reported.
“I don’t want to get into a shoving match with her,” Warnock says in a portion that wasn’t aired by “Tucker Carlson Tonight” but reported by Fox News. “So I go back around, get back in the car, and I slowly start to move, like I’m gonna move forward. Then she claims I ran over her foot.”
“This man’s running for United States Senate, and all he cares about right now is his reputation,” Ndoye is seen on the video telling police. “I’ve been trying to be very quiet about the way that he is for the sake of my kids and his reputation. I’ve tried to keep the way that he acts under wraps for a long time, and today he crossed the line. So that is what is going on here. And he’s a great actor. He is phenomenal at putting on a really good show.”
Warnock filed for divorce days later. He’s currently in one of the two hotly-contested Georgia U.S. Senate election run-offs. According to the RealClearPolitics’ polling average, Republican incumbent Kelly Loeffler has a 0.8 point lead in their race.
