The former University of Cincinnati  police officer had a little something extra underneath his uniform.

Ray Tensing was charged with murder in the July 19, 2015, shooting death of Samuel DuBose during a traffic stop.


The former officer claims he shot DuBose in self-defense after the man tried to drag him with his vehicle to flee the traffic stop.

But Hamilton County, Ohio, prosecutors showed a frame-by-frame breakdown of body camera evidence that shows Tensing fired his weapon point-blank before the car moved.

Prosecutors introduced the Confederate flag souvenir T-shirt, which read “Smoky Mountains 1934,” that Tensing was wearing under his uniform, into evidence Friday morning.
