Does George Zimmerman Video Show Head Injury?

An analysis of the bombshell video that appears to show an uninjured George Zimmerman in a police station after the Trayvon Martin shooting has turned up what could be an injury to Zimmerman's head.

On Wednesday night ABC News showed the video which appeared to contradict Zimmerman's claims that Martin broke his nose and slammed his head into the ground during a fight which led Zimmerman to shoot Martin.

But The Daily Caller has enhanced the video, and it argues that there might be an injury to the back of his head, writing:

But a still image from the video indicates what appears to be a vertical laceration or scar several inches long.

The video does show that at one point, an officer looked at the back of Zimmerman's head.

The police report says paramedics gave Zimmerman "first aid" at the scene, but does not say what that treatment included. ABC News reports that Zimmerman did not go to a hospital.
