Audio and video recordings from the night Paul Pelosi, the husband of Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi, was violently assaulted were released on Friday.

The public release comes after multiple news organizations, including ABC News, filed a court motion arguing the footage should be made available to the public after it was presented as evidence in court.

A San Francisco Superior Court judge ruled in favor of the outlets on Wednesday.

The materials released include body camera footage, the 911 call made by Paul Pelosi, Capitol Police surveillance video and the suspect’s interview with the San Francisco Police Department.

The graphic body camera video shows officers arriving at the residence. When the door is opened, Paul Pelosi is seen standing next to the suspect, David DePape, and both are struggling over a hammer.
