Tim Profitt, the Rand Paul organizer and donor who is being investigated in connection with stomping on MoveOn.org member Lauren Valle, says she was overly aggressive and he was trying to hold her down with his foot because his bad back prevented him from bending down.

In the video, it appears to some that 23-year-old Lauren Valle is wrestled down to the ground by Rand Paul Supporters and then stomped on.

But to Tim Profitt, the the situation is much different. He says what the video doesn’t show is Valle’s aggressive behavior. Profitt says she rushed Paul’s car three different times; each time refusing to stop.

He says at the time, he didn’t know what she was trying to do.

“We thought she was a danger; we didn’t know what she was doing.”

Profitt explained that he used his foot to try and keep her down because he can’t bend over because of back problems. He also says police were alerted to watch her before Paul arrived because people in the crown recognized her as someone who may try and pull a stunt.

Profitt faces fourth degree assault charges.
