Tucholski said Tracy Martin "looked down at my badge or chest area" and cursed at him under his breath, calling him a "mother******."
Nelson ruled that Martin's parents can remain in the courtroom since she saw no prejudice or no emotional reactions.
O'Mara then asked if Zimmerman's family could be in the courtroom, to which Nelson said "can we still stay on focus?" Nelson said Zimmerman's mother and father aren't allowed in the courtroom because they're on the witness list.
All 24 public seats for the Zimmerman trial were claimed on Day 1 of Zimmerman's trial. A certain amount of seats were also set aside for local law enforcement, pastors and local leaders. Sanford Police Chief Cecile Smith and Seminole County Sheriff Don Eslinger were in the courtroom for Day 1 of Zimmerman's trial.
Martin's parents both spoke just before opening statements on Monday asking for prayers during the trial.
"As the court proceedings continue today we as a family love and cherish and hold on to the memories that Trayvon left us with. As we enter court seeking justice we hold on to his smile which strengthens us and ask that you continue to pray for us," said Tracy Martin.
"I'm here today as Trayvon's mother. As I have been every day I will attend court to try and get justice for my son," Sybrina Fulton said. "I ask that you pray for me and my family because I don't want any other mother to have to experience what I'm going through now."
The all-female jury was seated on Thursday after more than eight days of jury selection. They will be sequestered for the remainder of the trial, which could last up to a month.
