SANFORD, Fla. -- A Skype testimony from one of George Zimmerman's former college professors was interrupted with a flood of video-chatting pranksters dialing into the conversation.
After prosecutor Rich Mantei's Skype username showed up on the screen in the courtroom -- and on televisions across the nation -- other users of the video chat program started to call in, disrupting the courtroom.
Scott Pleasants, a Seminole State College professor who taught a criminal justice course Zimmerman took, was testifying remotely from Colorado before he was silenced by the beeps and blips of incoming Skype calls.
"There is now a really good chance that we are being toyed with -- just so you know," Zimmerman's lawyer Mark O'Mara said.
Pleasants used his cell phone to finish the testimony.
