LOS ANGELES (AP) - The first bodyguard to reach Michael Jackson's bedroom after the singer's doctor called for help has told jurors that he was told by the doctor to hide medicine vials before calling 911.
Alberto Alvarez said in testimony Thursday that Dr. Conrad Murray grabbed the vials form a nightstand next to Jackson, who was still in his bed.
He testified that Murray only told him Jackson had a bad reaction.
When he entered the bedroom, Alvarez said he saw Jackson's eyes were open and was surprised to see that the singer was wearing a condom catheter.
Alvarez testified he stowed the vials before calling 911. He is the sixth witness to testify in Murray's involuntary manslaughter trial, which is in its third day.
