Smoking Gun in Coleman Trial

The defense called Tom Coleman's mother to testify. She told the jury about how her son wore dark cowboy hats and not light colored ones.

It appeared this could have been the smoking gun for the defense since the state's witness, two days ago, testified to seeing Coleman wearing a light colored hat while he was stealing gas from Cochran County. Coleman faced theft charges, was arrested for stealing the gas but told lawyers under oath at the 2003 evidentiary hearing, that Cochran county officials were "dreaming it up" about the gas theft.

But tomorrow (Friday), the defense will offer a piece of video that blows the dark cowboy hat theory. NewsChannel 11 has learned the state will show video of Coleman wearing a light colored cowboy hat during a news piece from the Amarillo market. The judge will decide if the jury will be allowed to see it.
