SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - A video released by a federal court in California shows former President Gerald Ford recalling an assassination attempt by Charles Mansion disciple Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme.

It happened in 1975 in Sacramento outside the California statehouse.

In the videotaped testimony, Ford recalls seeing a "weathered" woman in a brightly colored dress and then a gun coming through the crowd, but not who was holding it. Ford wasn't hurt.
