Darren Wilson: 'No Way' Brown's Hands Were Up
In an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos last night, Darren Wilson recounted the events of his Aug. 9 confrontation with Michael Brown.
Wilson refuted statements from some witnesses that he tried to pull Brown into his police vehicle, and he described Brown's "immense power," which he again said made him feel like "a 5-year-old holding onto Hulk Hogan" during the struggle.
Why not stay in the car? Stephanopoulos asked.
Wilson replied that his job isn't to sit and wait. It's his duty to give chase, and that's what he was trained to do, he said.
He said he is sorry to Brown's parents that things went the way they did.
"Nothing you could say, but, again, you know, I’m sorry that their son lost his life. It wasn’t the intention of that day. It’s what occurred that day. And there’s nothing you could say that’s gonna make a parent feel better."
Wilson also detailed the seconds before he fatally shot Brown, saying there was "no way" Brown had his hands up.
