'Fucking mad' Pistorius fired shot through sunroof
Darren Fresco's ears felt as if they were bleeding after his friend Oscar Pistorius fired a shot through the sunroof of a car, the High Court in Pretoria heard.
"I apologise My Lady, but I asked him if he was fucking mad," Fresco told the court when asked how he reacted after Pistorius fired the shot.
He testified he was driving with Pistorius's ex-girlfriend Samantha Taylor and Pistorius in the car.
A court visual showed they were on the R25 and M78 Edenglen turnoff in the direction of Johannesburg.
Earlier that evening, they were stopped for speeding and Pistorius had become angry about a metro policeman touching his firearm.
Fresco said they were driving with Taylor in the back of the car.
"And then without prior warning he shot out the sunroof," he said.
He instinctively moved to right hand side of the vehicle because of the noise in his left ear.
That led to Fresco voicing the profanity.
Asked by prosecutor Gerrie Nel how Pistorius responded, he said: "He just laughed My Lady."
They then "just carried on driving".
Pistorius is charged with the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on February 14 2013.
He is also charged with illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition, and two counts of discharging a firearm in public.
He has pleaded not guilty.
