He was asked if he could cite an example of O'Leary's treatment of players. Tice responded, "The one that stands out for me personally was probably -- it was my third practice there at UCF, first week had to have been, of fall camp, a true freshman I had no idea, you know, what's going on in the offense, and I ran a play, and I took a -- a sack or it was a loss of yards, and he just came up to me and grabbed me by the face mask and said what the [video skipped for removal of explicative] you doing, throw the [video skipped for removal expletive] ball away. That was -- like I still remember that, but grabbed me by the face mask, you know, I've never really had anyone do that to me."
When Tice was asked if O'Leary used profanity in an extreme sense, Tice responded, "he used profanity a lot."
Plancher family attorney Steve Yerrid asked Tice how O'Leary's use of profanity compared to other coaches. Tice responded, "Most coaches I've been around that have sworn, it was -- might be for comical reasons or it might be just like -- you know, just kind of adds emphasis, like it -- but Coach O'Leary, it was like they were trying to bring a guy down."
Tice stated he gave a sworn statement to UCFAA attorneys about a month after Plancher's death. He said he was not represented by an attorney and no attorneys were there on behalf of the Plancher family.
When he was asked, Tice confirm O'Leary's personal assistant Manny Messengeur was present when Tice gave his sworn statement. When Tice was asked why he thought Messengeur was there, Tice responded, "I think that he was kind of there to put pressure, that -- to players not to say the wrong things."
During cross examination by UCFAA attorneys, Tice was asked if anyone told him what to say during his sworn statement. Tice responded, "specifically what to say? No."
Tice agreed UCF had a policy instructing players not to speak with the media. He stated Wisconsin had a similar policy.
Tice stated he was told he would receive a copy of his sworn statement shortly after speaking to a UCFAA attorney, but he did not receive it until he asked for it about two years later.
Evans ruled on one key shortly before the lunch break. Evans stated UCFAA could call witnesses to support the argument Gisele Plancher, Ereck Plancher's mother, could have informed the football player he had tested positive for sickle cell trait.
Before Tice's testimony, the jury toured the UCF football complex Monday morning.
Evans and UCF football equipment manager Thad Rivers led the jury on a tour of the UCF football weight room and indoor practice facility, the scene of Plancher's final workout on March 18, 2008. The judge the instructed attorneys and Rivers not to speak to the jury during the tour, allowing them to take their time and wander freely through the football complex.
Before the jury left its bus, Evans took the tour with attorneys representing the UCF Athletics Association and the Plancher family.
UCFAA attorneys told the judge they wanted the jury to walk into the athletic training room, the UCF weight room, the UCF locker room, the sidewalk between the locker room and the indoor practice facility and into the indoor practice facility.
Plancher family attorney Steve Yerrid said the jurors should not be able to walk out the front entrance of the weight room past a water fountain to the locker room. The judge agreed to let the jury walk out a rear weight room entrance to enter the locker room without passing the water fountain.
UCFAA attorney Dan Shapiro protested it was not the route football players normally took through the facility. UCFAA attorneys and Rivers both said the players go down the hallway past the water fountain to the locker room, then come back out after changing to enter the weight room.
Evans responded, "I know that, but I can't start them in the locker room. They have to come in somewhere."
Yerrid asked whether a large water jug should be set outside the fieldhouse.
The judge said once former UCF football player Brian Watters, a Plancher family witness, stated the water was located on the sidewalk outside of the fieldhouse, he would allow the jury to see it.
