Testimony ends after emotional day in Taylor Swift groping case

DENVER, Co. (AP) — Testimony has ended for the day in the groping case involving Taylor Swift.

The final testimony on Wednesday came from Frank Bell, Swift’s liaison with radio stations.

He says he asked the employer of David Mueller, a former disc jockey accused of grabbing Swift, to investigate the allegation involving a photo op before a 2013 concert.

He says he didn’t ask that Mueller be fired and instead requested  “appropriate action be taken.”
