JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The State Attorney's Office released new video of the man accused of nearly killing a girl in a bathroom at a Best Buy store.

James Tadros is facing attempted murder charges in the attack last August.

Police say Tadros, 29, met the 9-year-old girl in the games section of Best Buy, walked her to the bathroom, then attacked her. Police say he tried to drown her in the toilet.

Employees heard the attack. A store manager kicked in the door of the bathroom. Employees held Tadros down until police arrived.

Investigators on Monday released video of Tadros as he sat in an interrogation room at the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office after his arrest.

In one clip, police ask a handcuffed Tadros to sit down in a chair.

"Have a seat," says a female officer.

Tadros turns to the officer and says, "I want you to say it in my face, woman."

Another clip shows Tadros pushing a chair to the wall while looking at the video camera.

Officers enter the room, take the table away, and leave Tadros sitting in the corner.

Officers replaced the handcuffs with zip-ties.  He's tied to the chair at his wrists and ankles.

A short time later, police enter the room again to read Tadros his rights and ask him whether he understands them. He says yes.

The detective asked him what grade level he finished in school.  Tadros said 12.

"Do you understand what those rights were?" asked the detective.  "Yes, 'Law & Order,'" said Tadros.

Tadros also faces charges of false imprisonment and criminal mischief.

THIS ANIMAL IS FAKING, the first thing he did was LOOK STRAIGHT up at the camera, AND when he knew he was being watched, his 'ACTING' began.
