LATEST: The Phil Spector murder trial has heard further testimony from a waitress who was with the music producer on the night he is accused of fatally shooting actress Lara Clarkson.
On Thursday (10May07), Kathy Sullivan told the Los Angeles court how she met up with Spector at her Grill On The Abbey workplace on 2 February 2003, and that they went on to nearby nightclubs Trader Vic's, Dan Tana's and House Of Blues, where he met Clarkson.
Yesterday (11May07), Sullivan again took the stand and confirmed to defence attorney Roger Rosen that Spector had drank navy grogs and daiquiris, but was not drunk and may not have consumed all the drinks he ordered.
She also said he could walk and talk with no problems, was in an upbeat mood, chatting about various topics including American Idol, and gave extremely generous tips at all three clubs.
Sullivan said Spector became annoyed when she began drinking water at around 2am just after they arrived at House Of Blues, telling her to go home if she didn't want to stay out.
He then got Clarkson to walk her out of the club, and his driver took her home, Sullivan told the court.
Spector is accused of shooting Clarkson dead at his Alhambra, California home in February 2003. He has pleaded not guilty and claims Clarkson committed suicide.
The trial continues.
