The man seen on video fatally shooting Ahmaud Arbery acknowledged that Arbery did not threaten him during a chase and that he could’ve stopped following him before the defense rested its case on Thursday.
Travis McMichael also told prosecutors he did not tell police some of the details about the pursuit that he shared in court on Wednesday.
McMichael took the stand early Thursday for cross-examination after testifying for about three hours Wednesday during which he broke down while describing the final moments of his confrontation with Arbery on Feb. 23, 2020. He was the first of seven witnesses called by the defense and told the jury he wanted to share his “side of the story.”
The attorneys for McMichael’s co-defendants, his father, Gregory, and neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan, did not present cases before the defense rested. Closing arguments are scheduled for Monday morning.
