Video surfaced Friday morning of Joe Senser confronting news media in the Hennepin Count Government Center.

The outburst comes after several days of dramatic testimony in the trial of Senser's wife.

Amy Senser, 45, is charged in connection with the hit-and-run that killed Phanthavong last August. She faces three counts of criminal vehicular homicide.

On Friday morning, Senser's daughter Molly testified emphatically (Pioneer Press) that her mother was not drunk on the night of the accident, even though she failed to pick Molly and a friend up from the Katy Perry concert.

On Thursday at the trial:

-- Senser himself testified that sometimes his wife Amy is too carefree and lives in "Amyworld" (Star Tribune).

-- Senser's 14-year old daughter testified that she and a friend were unable to reach Amy after a concert the night of the crash (MPR)

Friday's outburst wasn't the first sign that the trial is wearing on Senser's emotions, earlier in the week, WCCO reported that he was accused of talking with jurors after the trial.
