Video: Penn State Witness Mike McQueary Speaks Out

The man who says he witnessed former Penn State defensive coach Jerry Sandusky raping a boy in a shower is speaking for the first time since the scandal broke.

CBS News reporter Armen Keteyian caught up with Mike McQueary on Tuesday for a brief interview.

Here is the transcript:

"When do you think you'll be ready to talk," Keteyian asked.

"The whole process has to play out," McQueary replied. "I just don't have anything else to say."

"Describe your emotions right now."

"All over the place, just kind of shaken."


"Crazy," McQueary said.

"You said like what, Mike?"

"Like a snow globe."

"Like a snow globe," Keteyian asked.

"Yes sir."

It was also revealed on Tuesday that McQueary claims he stopped Sandusky from continuing to assault the boy. A friend of McQueary's gave The Associated Press an email to former teammates dated November 8. He wrote:

"I am getting hammered for handling this the right way ... or what I thought at the time was right. I had to make tough impacting quick decisions."

He said he "didn't just turn and run" when he saw the alleged assault.

"I made sure it stopped. I did the right thing ... you guys know me."

He also said he spoke with police after the incident.
