Camera Captures Casey Anthony's Fall
Video Of Fall Likely To Be Released On Wednesday
Authorities in Orange County confirmed on Wednesday that a video camera captured the fall suffered by Casey Anthony before her hearing on Tuesday.
Orange County Communications Manager Steve Triggs said he has viewed the video taken from an overhead camera in the elevator where the fall happened.
Triggs said it appeared one of Anthony's leg chains became entangled in the opening between the elevator and elevator door, causing her to fall forward.
Triggs said it doesn't currently appear there were any security issues arising from the incident.
Triggs said the video would likely be released to the public on Wednesday afternoon.

News reports show she busted her lip and chipped her tooth on Tuesday.

The 32-second video shows a security officer walk into the elevator, followed by Casey Anthony, shackled at the feet and waist. When she crosses the threshold, she suddenly falls forward and lands face down. Because she is shackled, it doesn't look as though she was able to catch herself.
The security officers help roll her over and help her sit up. The doors to the elevator close and the video stops. Orange County spokesman Steve Triggs said Anthony's leg restraints became entangled in the space between the elevator and door, causing her to trip and fall forward.
Allen Moore of the Orange County Jail said Anthony was treated at a hospital for "relatively minor" injuries. Some news reports show she busted her lip and chipped her tooth. Moore said confidentiality rules prevent him from confirming those reports.

Casey Anthony takes ‘a nasty spill’; is this a special case?

The defense team rambled. Judge Belvin Perry rocked.
Casey Anthony rolled … as she fell down. Or as Jane Velez-Mitchell put it last night, Anthony “took a nasty spill” on her way to the courthouse. The shackled defendant tripped in an elevator, cutting her chin and splitting her lip, Velez-Mitchell said on her HLN show. One Velez-Mitchell guest said Anthony’s absence from court during yesterday’s hearing was the most significant news. Do you agree?
And what about the defense’s push to keep the list of Anthony’s jail visitors secret? The speakers on “Issues” went at that one heatedly. One side of the argument: Anthony doesn’t deserve special treatment. (She is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her daughter, Caylee.) The other side of the argument: Special cases — such as the Anthony circus — require special treatment.

A Florida mother charged with murdering her 2-year-old daughter missed a pretrial court hearing Tuesday after she suffered some minor injuries in a fall at an Orlando courthouse. Casey Anthony, 24, fell before entering the courtroom when her hand and leg restraints became entangled. She fell forward, and officers escorting her were unable to stop her fall, officials said.

Video Released Of Casey Falling At Courthouse

The fall happened so fast, Casey’s law enforcement escorts were not able to break her fall. After checking Casey over, her escorts pulled her legs out of the way and shut the elevator doors. She was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center with minor injuries and missed her hearing. The jail is investigating Casey's fall. Officials expect to finish the inquiry in a couple of days.
Casey didn't want to go to court in the first place. During her last hearing, Judge Belvin Perry denied her request to not appear at future hearings.
While in court Tuesday, Perry shot down five of the six motions her defense team argued.
WHAT'S NEXT IN THE CASE?
Casey will not have to attend the next court hearing in the case. There's a status hearing set for June 21; Casey is no longer required to appear at status hearings. Meanwhile, prosecutors are also expected to release more evidence in the case in the coming weeks.
