Preston said he told her he "took the young lady for a ride in the Lamborghini." According to attorneys for Adams and tothe Lirette family, Lirette and Adams knew each other because he was a regular at the Warefare restaurant where Lirette waited tables. Adams was at the restaurant earlier that night. The testimony given during Wednesday's hearing was delivered in response to Adams' request to keep his statements and the blood sample that measured his blood alcohol level from being used as evidence at trial. Police have said Adams' blood alcohol measured 0.11 that night, above the legal limit of .08. Adams defense attorney David Courcelle grilled Preston about the chain of custody regarding the blood sample evidence. Courcelle noted to Preston that the roughly 40 minutes of body camera footage from her body camera captured at the hospital that night show the lights on the ceiling. He emphasized that the footage never shows Adams' blood actually being drawn. Courcelle asked Preston why the camera didn't capture the blood draw, and instead filmed the ceiling. Preston answered her camera is attached to her glasses, so "if something's done with my glasses, that's the reason why." Courcelle asked Preston if she was in the hospital room when a nurse took the blood sample. Preston said she was. He asked her if the nurse was certified to take a blood sample. Preston said the nurse was certified. He asked her how she knew the nurse was certified. Preston said she saw the nurse's credentials, which the nurse wore. He asked Preston if the credentials had her picture. Preston said they did. Courcelle asked the lead investigator in the fatal crash, Tony Pontiff, who authored the police report on the incident and was also called as a witness Wednesday, about the handling of Adams' blood sample before it was tested at a crime lab in Baton Rouge. Pontiff, answering a series of questions, testified that Preston brought the blood sample to NOPD's evidence room on Magnolia Street. Courcelle asked Pontiff what waskept in the evidence room. "Anything you can imagine," Pontiff answered.
