The George Zimmerman trial was abruptly halted on Wednesday when a witness' Skype testimony was flooded with incoming calls. Scott Pleasant, one of Zimmerman's former college professors, was answering questions when viewers of the nationally televised trial took advantage of seeing his username.

Pleasants taught a criminal justice course at Seminole State College that Zimmerman took previously. He completed his testimony over the phone.
