TMZ Sports spoke with Kyle Hadala, who tells us he feels the viral video does NOT tell the full story of what transpired before that fateful punch was thrown on June 19 at Zoo Bar in South Dakota. We’ve reached out to Dallas for comment … “They picked out my smaller colleague from the group, got in his face, and made very threatening remarks toward his personal well-being,” Hadala tells us. “Then one of his crew told my other colleague, and I quote, ‘You’re just a fat f**king pussy. and he says he suffered serious injuries as a result. and that’s when Hadala decided to take action. “At this point, I was in fear for both of my friends’ well-being especially due to the fact there were 10 of them and we were not familiar with the area,” Hadala says. The group moved to a new spot — the Zoo Bar — but Hadala says Goedert and his crew followed them with bad intentions.

Garrett Rolfe Granted Bond in Rayshard Brooks Murder Case, Set at $500k

Originally published — 10:44 AM PT Brooks possessed a deadly weapon.”

He claims the Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard “has declared that a TASER is a deadly weapon under Georgia law.”

Finally, Rolfe argues he should be granted bond so he has an opportunity to help his lawyers prepare for the case, adding the D.A. Barwick has granted bond for Rolfe, and set it at $500,000. According to legal docs … As we’ve reported … 12:36 PM PT — Brooks’ widow, Tomika Miller, delivered an incredibly emotional impact statement during the hearing, saying her life has been completely turned upside down since her husband was killed … she can’t eat, can’t sleep and can’t console her children. For that reason, she’s asking the judge to deny Rolfe’s request for bond, saying … “Mentally, I am not able to handle it.”

As for the proposed bond … Rolfe’s lawyers are asking for a $50k signature bond similar to what Brosnan got. Brooks had been speaking with Rolfe, along with officer Devin Brosnan, before Rolfe tried to arrest him and a struggle ensued. The hearing’s scheduled for 11 AM PT. Video of the incident shows Brooks had obtained one of the officers’ Tasers and was attempting to flee following a failed breathalyzer test, and that’s when Rolfe opened fire on him … “made several important factual misstatements to the public.”

Rolfe’s legal team is also expected to present character witnesses to testify that the former officer is a good man and will not present a flight risk. but at a steep price. Garrett Rolfe — the fired Atlanta PD officer charged with felony murder for the fatal shooting of Rayshard Brooks — might be released from jail Tuesday … As for the phone passcode requested by the State … Judge Barwick says that’s for another hearing, but made a point to get Rolfe’s lawyers to agree that all phone evidence must be preserved.

Some experts predict the judge will grant some sort of bond … TMZ’s live streaming his bond hearing. Next, Rolfe claims there is “significant evidence that proves he was legally justified in using deadly force in this case.” In the docs, Rolfe argues that Brooks committed multiple felonies “in resisting lawful arrest” — including firing the TASER at him — and Brooks’ actions justified Rolfe’s use of deadly force “if he reasonably believed that Mr. Fulton County D.A. while they are “disappointed that his killer was granted bond today, they understand that this is just one step in the long quest for justice for Rayshard.”

They add … “We will be diligent in our pursuit of justice for this family and will do everything in our power to make sure that Rayshard Brooks did not lose his life in vain.”

12:54 PM PT — Judge Jane C. Chris Stewart and Justin Miller, tell TMZ … Howard announced 11 charges against Rolfe, including felony murder and multiple acts of aggravated assault. The state wants it set much higher. The judge also imposed Rolfe’s conditions — he must surrender his passport, wear an ankle monitor, obey a curfew, and he’s to have no contact with Brooks’ family or any other witnesses or alleged victims in the case. While announcing the charges, Howard said Rolfe kicked Brooks while he lay dying, and added he doesn’t believe Rolfe feared for his life … Half of that amount is a $250k straight bond for the felony murder charge, and the other half is a combination of bonds for all of his other charges. It’s recommending bond of $1 million with several conditions — Rolfe must disclose his location and who he’s living with, he must give up the passcode to his phone, he must have no contact with any officers involved in the case, he must turn over communication with other officers, he must wear an ankle monitor, he must adhere to a curfew, he’s to possess no weapons, and he’s to have no communication with Brooks’ family or any witness.
