In the months since the August 9th shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson has been silent, and out of sight. But we're finally hearing his side of the story, his testimony and pictures of him after the shooting, now revealed. Ana Cabrera reports. "They determined that no probable cause exists to file any charge against officer Wilson." A bombshell announcement with big implications, no indictment against 28-year-old Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson. "The physical and scientific evidence examined by the grand jury, combined with the witness statements, supported and substantiated by that physical evidence tells the accurate and tragic story of what happened," says .Robert McCulloch St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney. Overnight, the prosecutor releasing the contents of the entire case, including these photos of a bruised Wilson indicating a struggle with the unarmed teen. Silent since the August 9 incident, we are now hearing from Wilson in his own words through his testimony about the day he fatally shot Michael Brown. He says Brown assaulted him while he was still inside his vehicle, and that he had never used his weapon before. He said, quote: "I felt that another of those punches in the face could knock me out or worse. I've already taken two to the face and I didn't think I would, the third one could be fatal if he hit me right." Wilson has been in hiding for the last three months. With anger and frustration erupting across the region following the decision not to indict, Wilson's lawyer releasing a statement saying, in part... "Law enforcement personnel must frequently make split-second and difficult decisions. Officer Wilson followed his training and followed the law." Sources tell CNN the four-year veteran of the Ferguson Police Department, who's been out on paid administrative leave, now has plans to resign. Through the controversy, Wilson managed to keep his personal life private, even his recent marriage to a fellow Ferguson Police Officer. A St. Louis County marriage license says the two wed on October 24 in Oakland, Missouri, some 15 miles south of Ferguson. The couple reportedly share a home in St. Louis. This is his second marriage, her first. But what the future holds for them, is unclear.
