In a motion filed last week, O'Connor's attorney, Bill Difenderfer claims the missing bodycam footage shows the alleged road rage victim threatening to get another officer fired, saying he already got Kramer and O'Connor fired.
Difenderfer said that all the other footage from the day in question was saved except for the portion involving the alleged victim.
"From traffic stops to all kinds of different things," he said. "Everything is there except the one section."
In a response filed Friday, the district attorney's office confirmed the video was deleted, but says it was automatically purged after the 90-day retention period expired because it was never tagged to be saved. The office also said it never received a subpoena to save the video.
The motions suggest the officer who captured the video didn't take steps to save it.
O’Connor is set for trial on Jan. 7, and the judge has yet to set a date to hear arguments about the bodycam footage.
