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.
