In her video, Jordana made it clear that she was not going to pay her boyfriend’s bail to get him out of jail.

“I’ve been speaking to a lot of people about this,” she says in the video. “It was the worst week with him. Every day there was some sort of problem. There were signs that this was going to happen.”

She also said that the man he allegedly assaulted was named Lucas and he was later hospitalized due to the assault. The deadly weapon, she says, was a metal chair.

“He could have killed him,” Jordana claims in the video. “I saw pictures, I saw video. It’s not good.”

Jordana Felt ‘Relieved’ He Was Arrested

In the video, Jordana is on the phone with someone who says jail is the “safest place” for Dick right now.

“Yeah, that’s what I was thinking,” Jordana says. “I kind of felt relieved that he was there because I had got a call a few nights ago from a guy that was at an ATM for Andy at like 3 in the morning. The guy did not sound good. I said, ‘Get away from that ATM right now…’ and I was just furious at that guy.”

She said she thought he would be safe in jail where they would feed him and he would be okay.

“So it was kind of a relief,” she shared. “I mean, I am sad that I don’t get to talk to him. But actually, the night that he went to jail, we went out to dinner, we went out to this really nice steak house. And, you know, he invited two or three guys of course as usual, and he was in rare form that night. It was really bad. He stole cutlery, he stole wine glasses, he stole plates.”

She also said that he was hitting on a waitress.

Incident photos shared in the YouTube video show a person with a bloody gash on and behind the left ear with.

Jordana Says Dick Is ‘Mad’ at Her

According to Us Weekly, Dick is upset with Jordana after she spoke about the arrest.

“He’s mad at me,” she told Us Weekly. “I regret saying it, but I want to help. I want someone to help me. It’s very hard dealing with these things. I love Andy and he is the best in many ways. In hindsight maybe I shouldn’t have said anything, but I did. And I feel alone.”
