Transcript for Oscar Pistorius to Undergo Psych Evaluation
We begin with the brand-new twist in the Oscar Pistorius trial. The judge ordering a psychiatric evaluation. And Matt Gutman has all of the latest from the courthouse in Pretoria. Reporter: Good morning, George. This could dramatically change the trajectory of this trial. Pistorius will be sent for up to 30 days of psychological evaluation, by a battery of mental health experts. His jaw clenched when the judge read that ruling. It was the defense psychiatrist who said he suffers from an anxiety disorder that may have caused him to fight instead of flight that night. Matt, what happens if the experts do determine that Pistorius has some kind of a mental disorder? Reporter: Neither side is saying he's insane. But if he is found to be incapacitated at the time, he could be not held criminally responsible. If he's only partially incapacitated that night, not all bad for Pistorius. Thank you very much. So many twists and turns. Now, to the underwater assault caught on camera.
