Guard: Harding Knew

Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding knew about the plot to injure rival Nancy Kerrigan and grew impatient when the attack did not occur in the Boston area prior to the Olympic trials, her bodyguard said in an interview published Thursday morning.


"You know, you need to stop screwing around with this and get it done," Harding told Shawn Eric Eckardt, according to an interview in The Oregonian newspaper.


At a practice Thursday, Harding refused to respond to the comment made by Eckardt, whose credibility repeatedly has been questioned by acquaintances. However, it was Eckardt's testimony to authorities that provided the basis for Wednesday's warrant and arrest of Harding's ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly. Eckardt has admitted to his participation in the alleged plot.
