Carl Fredrik Arndt, one of the two Swedish students who intercepted the abuse of the Stanford rape victim, has claimed that Brock Turner did not seem that drunk at the time of the incident.
Talking to Fox News, Arndt, evidently still very shaken up by the experience, detailed some of his experience of happening upon Turner and the rape victim by a Dumpster outside a frat party.
“It was me and a friend, Peter. We were biking, we were right outside this fraternity house, and we saw a couple,” he explained in an interview with Greta Van Susteren. “My friend started noticing that something seemed weird. When we looked closer, we could see the girl clearly wasn’t moving while the male was. We stopped, started discussing it, then my friend Peter began action and started approaching,” he went on. “I walked behind him. We essentially called the guy out. After a brief conversation, the guy decided to run,” he added.
Declining to discuss the content of the conversation between themselves and Turner (“I don’t want to go too much into detail, that’s in the statement to the court. He was essentially saying he wasn’t doing anything,” the blond student replied), Van Susteren asked if Turner seemed drunk.
“No,” Arndt said. “He could run. I guess that answers the question. He could speak without slurring at all.”
The student also detailed how he tried to wake up the victim, but she didn’t come round, so after checking that she was alive, he went over to help his friend restrain Turner until the police arrived. “He tried to get loose,” Arndt explained.
As reported previously, the disgraced swimmer has since been convicted on three felony counts of sexual assault. Judge Aaron Persky sentenced him to six months at Santa Clara County Jail, a sentence many criticized as being too light. On Thursday, June 9, the Associated Press revealed that Turner will only serve three months.
