Florida prosecutors released new evidence today in the Trayvon Martin case that highlight several inconsistencies in George Zimmerman's account of the events that lead to him shooting the unarmed teen.
A detective who interviewed Zimmerman that night filed a report noting that while Zimmerman told police he was afraid of Trayvon Martin and wanted to avoid a confrontation, prompting his original 911 call before the incident, he voluntarily exited his vehicle and tried to pursue the unarmed teen.
Additionally, the report found that Zimmerman could have defused the situation somewhat if he initially identified himself as member of the Neighborhood Watch, and could have avoided it entirely had he stayed in his car like the 911 dispatcher requested at the time. Still, the detective didn't find enough evidence against Zimmerman to charge him that night, prompting his release.
Zimmerman, who is charged with second degree murder, maintains he shot Trayvon Martin in self defense during a physical altercation. OutFront to discuss are Benjamin Crump, an attorney for Trayvon Martin's family and CNN legal analyst Mark NeJame.
