Kai The Hitchhiker's Colorful Court Testimony

Posted: Updated:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

The past 20 days have been a roller coaster ride for the hatchet-wielding hitchhiker known as "Kai".

His interview on how he came to the rescue of a Pacific Gas and Electric worker went viral on YouTube.

Days later, he went on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

On Thursday afternoon, he was back in Fresno to be the star witness in the preliminary hearing against Jett McBride.

McBride, a 54-year-old Tacoma, Wash. man, is accused of running down Rayshawn Neely as he worked because of the color of his skin.

During Kai's nearly two hours of testimony, he explained in more detail the events leading up to the crash, including how he and Jett McBride stopped in the Tower District to buy and smoke marijuana.

Kai, whose real name is Caleb McGillivary, testified McBride proudly told him about raping a 14-year-old girl.

"He's like, well I've come to realize I'm Jesus Christ and I can get away with anything I want to," Kai said. "Watch this, and there's a whole crew of construction people in front of me and most of them jumped aside and one pinned underneath."

While Neely was pinned, Kai says McBride then turned on several people who tried to help.

Neely also testified about how much pain he has been in.

Then in a surprise move, as Neely wheeled out of the courtroom, McBride apologized.

The preliminary hearing expects to wrap up Friday afternoon, then the judge will decide if there is enough evidence for a trial.
