Records detail George Zimmerman’s medical injuries

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 04:56 a.m. HST, May 16, 2012

MIAMI >> Court records show George Zimmerman had a pair of black eyes, a nose fracture and two cuts to the back of his head after the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

The medical records were part of evidence released Tuesday that prosecutors have in the second-degree murder case against Zimmerman. He has entered a plea of not guilty and claims self-defense in the Feb. 26 shooting. A message left Tuesday evening with Zimmerman’s attorney was not immediately returned.

Zimmerman was treated Feb. 27 at Altamonte Family Practice. A phone call made Tuesday evening to the practice rang unanswered.

ABC News first reported Zimmerman’s injuries from the medical records. Some of the injuries were previously reported by The Associated Press based on video of Zimmerman at a jail sally port.

The reports I read stated that when he was arrested he did not have these wounds, but did the following day at his court appearance.

Perfectly logical statement. Trial by jury is the only rational solution, not trial by news media.

Responding emergency personnel the night of the incident didn't feel Zimmerman's injuries were serious enough to transport him to a hospital. The next morning Zimmerman goes to his family doctor who reports he has a fractured nose, black eyes, and two cuts in the back of the head. Sorry, either the doctor's lying or Zimmerman had those injuries inflicted on his body to back up his story...
