Two days after he was accused of molesting his daughter, George Anthony returned to the witness stand Thursday and clashed with Casey Anthony's lawyer in the murder trial.

George was asked to describe the day he tried to look for missing gas cans in the trunk of the white Pontiac where prosecutors say Casey's 2-year-old daughter's body was decomposing. The prosecution contends Casey pushed past her father and wouldn't let him look in the trunk.

Under cross-examination, George Anthony struggled to maintain his composure.

"Treat me with a little respect," a red-faced Anthony snapped at defense lawyer Jose Baez, "and I'll treat you with a little respect. You're trying to get me more upset, and I don't think that's fair. You are badgering me."

The defense team had accused him of molesting Casey from the time she was 8 years old. The defense claims Caylee drowned accidentally in the family pool, and that George Anthony made Casey cover it up.
