A friend of Oscar Pistorius has told his murder trial that the athlete “had a big love” for guns.
Darren Fresco said that he had been with on two occasions when a gun had been fired in public.
“Mr Pistorius had once accidentally fired a gun in a restaurant but made him take the blame”, Mr Fresco.
Mr Fresco said that on another occasion, he had been driving when Mr Pistorius fired a gun out of a sunroof after police stopped him for speeding.
He said Mr Pistorius had become angry after a police officer handled his gun, which was on the back seat of the car.
“You can’t just touch another man’s gun”, said Mr Pistorius, according to Mr Fresco.
“Now your fingerprints are all over my gun. So if something happens, you’re going to be liable for anything that happens”, Mr Pistorius reportedly warned the officer.
Mr Pistorius’ ex-girlfriend described the same incident in court in the first week of the trial.
