Now we’re finding out that he didn’t suffer any serious head injuries in his confrontation with Travon who, Zimmerman said slammed his head against the concrete repeatedly, according to the medical report.
The just-released document states he suffered a broken nose, but no deviation of the septum, and two black eyes, The Miami Herald says.
The report fills in details of the already reported injuries Zimmerman says he suffered the night of Feb. 26 when he shot and killed the 17-year-old Trayvon, who was visiting his father in Sanford, Fla.
Zimmerman went for the checkup the day after the killing only because he needed a doctor’s note to return to work, a prosecutor said in court Friday during a new bail hearing.
Although Zimmerman’s nose was broken, he twice rejected the physician assistant’s recommendation that he see an ear, nose and throat specialist.
No stitches were needed to close the head cuts, which he was advised to clean with soap and water daily. Zimmerman reported no headaches, blurred vision or loss of hearing.
