A video of George Zimmerman being taken in by police shortly after Trayvon Martin’s death has gone viral.
In the video obtained by ABC, Zimmerman is seen getting out of the cop car, being inspected by one police officer and being led inside.
The video takes place at the Sanford Police Department where Zimmerman reportedly told police he was attacked by the 17-year-old he fatally shot in the chest.
The newly released video has now added even more controversy to the case as there’s clearly no evidence of cuts or bruises on his head or face. According to a report, Zimmerman had previously told cops that he was jumped from behind, punched in the nose and pounded his head into a sidewalk by Martin, reported Huffington Post.
On February 26, the 28-year-old neighborhood watch captain was patrolling a gated Sanford, Florida community when he reported Martin as a “suspicious guy” wearing a hoodie. On the 911 call, later released to the public, Zimmerman is told not to follow Martin.
Shortly after the 911 call, the two got involved in a physical encounter that ended in Martin’s death. Martin was later reportedly found with no weapons in his possession instead only skittles and an iced tea.
The incident has since garnered nationwide attention and the fact that Zimmerman was taken into custody but released later that night and still remains free has enraged many.
Currently according to Examiner.com, the U.S. Department of Justice and the FBI are investigating for potential civil rights violations, while a special task force has been established to handle the criminal aspect of the killing.
