Lee told CNN that he decided not to arrest George Zimmerman because doing so would be a violation of his Fourth Amendment rights. “The evidence and testimony that we had didn’t get us to probable cause,” said Lee, referring to the constitutional criteria required before making an arrest.

Lee was repeatedly asked by the Sanford City Manager, “Can an arrest be made now?” and he was at one point told by a City Commissioner: “We just want an arrest.”
