ATLANTA — (Scroll Down For Video) — Footage of an encounter between police and U.S. Senate candidate Rev. Raphael Warnock has emerged.
The incident occurred in March when Warnock’s ex-wife, Ouleye Ndoye, told police Warnock had run over her foot with his car. The video was first aired by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.
Warnock told the responding officer, “I don’t want to get into a shoving match with her. 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,” Warnock said.
Police said Ndoye’s foot had no broken bones or bruises and ultimately, Warnock was never charged with a crime.
Ndoye is seen in the video sobbing, telling a police officer her husband is ‘a great actor’ and ‘putting on a really good show’ while accusing him of domestic violence.
“This man’s running for United States Senate, and all he cares about right now is his reputation,” she said. “I’ve been very quiet about the way that he is for the sake of my kids and his reputation.”
Adding, “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.”
The video has leaked days before Warnock’s run-off election against Republican U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler is held — one of the nation’s most-watched political contests.
