ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A witness has testified in Jesse Ventura's defamation lawsuit that she saw someone punch the former Minnesota governor at a bar in California in 2006.

Laura deShazo of Salt Lake City testified Monday she was at the pub in Coronado California, the night when slain ``American Sniper'' author Chris Kyle said he punched a man he called ``Scruff Face.'' Kyle later identified the man as Ventura.

DeShazo said she was in the bar to attend the wake for a friend of Kyle's. While there, she, her sister and her brother's girlfriend poses for a picture with Ventura.

 DeShazo says she later saw Ventura get into a scuffle with other people at the bar, and saw a man punch Ventura. She said she doesn't know who threw the punch, but she gave a description that was consistent with Kyle.

 

Ventura testified that the punch never happened.
