The incident occurred on a Sunday afternoon just outside of Brunswick. Upon seeing Arbery — who had just left an unoccupied house under construction nearby — run down his street, Greg McMichael called for his son.
The two men got their guns, jumped into Travis McMichael’s pickup truck and began pursuing Arbery. When Bryan saw them pass by, he got in his pickup and joined the chase.
In a recently filed court motion, state prosecutors asked Superior Court Judge Timothy Walmsley to prevent the defense from introducing evidence that Arbery was on probation.

Arbery had previously pleaded guilty to two separate incidents and received sentences of probation for each one: carrying a handgun onto school property and obstruction in 2013, and attempting to shoplift a television from a Walmart in 2017.
Ahmaud Arbery’s mother put her head in her hands and wept as body cam video that showed the aftermath of her son’s shooting was played in court Friday.

The pool reporter in the room who made the observation also noted that during that footage, one of the jurors was seen “shielding herself with her notebook,” seemingly unable to watch.
Jurors were shown graphic closeup police photos Monday of the gunshot wounds that killed Ahmaud Arbery.
Glynn County police Sgt. Sheila Ramos walked the jury through dozens of crime scene photos she took about an hour after the shooting during the second day of the trial for three white men who chased and shot Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man after he was spotted running in a neighborhood just outside the port city of Brunswick.
