Video: Mayhem Festival clips capture events before assault
The second clip shows more of what's happening in the vicinity of Buckner at around the same time. While Buckner's shoving someone off to the left, pause the video eight seconds in -- and you'll see Gerhardt in the background, trapped in a chokehold by a larger man in a white shirt. The black-shirted bald man addressing Gerhardt, at one point shaking a finger at him, has been identified as Christensen.
Here's a still of what appears to be going on eight seconds into the second clip, with Christensen pressing in against his future assailant Gerhardt:
Twenty-three seconds in, Gerhard is clearly visible face-down on the ground, with Christensen checking on him. The camera then shifts to more Buckner action, but Gerhardt is soon back on his feet -- and helping pull people off Buckner. At the 0:56 mark, Gerhardt is seen shaking hands with another erstwhile combatant -- and in the next few seconds, exchanging words with Christensen. The two square off, then go their separate ways.
Except they don't. The assault on Christensen apparently happened approximately three minutes after the clip ends.
