Dr. Drew

Driven by current events, "Dr. Drew" on HLN focuses on the human - and human behavior - at the center of the story.

Surfer: Jodi was becoming too aggressive

  • Jodi Arias, on trial for the murder of her ex-boyfriend, claims self-defense
  • Travis Alexander was stabbed 29 times, shot, throat slashed

When court is done for the day, the conversation is only just beginning. Watch "HLN After Dark: The Jodi Arias Trial" nightly at 10 p.m. on HLN.

On Wednesday night, HLN’s Dr. Drew talked to two men who say that on at least two occasions, Jodi Arias invited herself on their surfing trips.

After explaining how Arias behaved in their presence, Zion Lovingier said, “[Travis] told people who were very close to him that he was working with counselors in his church to really let go of Jodi and to do what was healthy. He knew that he was behaving inconsistent with his values.”

He added, “[Travis] wanted to get rid of Jodi ... she was becoming continually more aggressive, particularly as he started to pull away.”

Arias claims she had to kill Alexander in self-defense in June of 2008 at his Mesa, Arizona home, even though she had given authorities other stories about the circumstances of his death. She faces the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder.

Dr. Drew On Call airs Monday through Thursday on HLN at 9 p.m. ET.  Follow the show on Facebook and Twitter @DrDrewHLN.
