Video not available
A court showed police spy footage of a domestic incident involving Johnny Depp and Amber Heard where it was alleged he assaulted her – something the actor has always denied.
Also today in court, Johnny laughed when a doorman testified that Amber once asked him to investigate an ‘intruder’ because of a ‘scratch on his door’.
“It was her dog,” Alejandro Romero added, in a strange deposition that was pre-recorded on his cell phone while sitting in his car.
Previously, the court showed the moment LAPD employees knocked on the door of Johnny Depp’s penthouse in Los Angeles, on May 21, 2016.
Police were called to a ‘family incident’ at the apartment where the 58-year-old Hollywood actor had an argument with his ex-wife Amber Heard, 35, in which she alleges that violence was used against me.
The footage shows how the door was answered by Josh Drew, Depp’s next door neighbor and rented apartment from the actor.
Officers were seen entering the apartment, saying they had received “notice” of an incident, the second time LAPD officers had been called to the property that evening.

A woman’s voice is heard telling officers that everything is fine but the lighting in the apartment is dark so the footage doesn’t make it clear who is speaking.
Later, the officers can be heard that “Johnny” is not there.
When asked in court about Heard and her friends’ level of cooperation, Gatlin Police said it was “quite low”.
Officer Hadden told the court he attended a call at Depp’s penthouse in the East Columbia Building on the night of the same day.

The officer said when he arrived at the property, Amber was about 10 feet away from when he first saw her.
He told the court he didn’t see any signs of injury or bruising and that the red mark on her face was from crying.
The officer said there was enough light at the time for him to see Amber’s face clearly.
Officer Hadden told the court he didn’t see any signs of broken, damaged or spilled glass when he scanned the penthouse.
When asked why he did not file a report on the case, the officer told the court that it was not common to write a report about an “oral dispute”.
The court also heard from talent manager Christian Carino, who is Lady Gaga’s ex-fiancé.
Carino has previously said that Johnny is a “mystery” to many people because he has always kept his private life private.
Carino told the court it was “probably” around the time Amber brought up the allegations about Depp and the lawsuit the actor brought to The Sun newspaper, Depp’s private life began to come under more scrutiny.
When asked if there was a particular lawsuit affecting Johnny’s reputation, Carino said: “My opinion is that Amber’s accusations will have the biggest impact on her off-screen reputation. I’m not talking about any specific accusations.”
When asked to explain in court what he meant by “accusation”, the talent manager said: “I mean the things she accused Johnny of doing … were made public.”
The Pirates of the Caribbean star is suing ex-wife Amber Heard, 35, for $50 million for defamation, after she wrote an article for the Washington Post about being a victim of domestic violence but it do not mention him directly.
Amber Heard is protesting Depp $100 million for defamation, with the case now entering its third week in the planned seven weeks.
The trial continued.
