    Police: Zimmerman accused of threatening driver

    Police: Zimmerman accused of threatening driver

    Police are investigating two reports involving the driver and 30-year-old Zimmerman, who was acquitted last year of a second-degree murder charge for shooting an unarmed teenager.

    Police say that on Tuesday, the man called police after a truck pulled up next to him and the driver yelled, "Why are you pointing a finger at me?"

    Police spokeswoman Bianca Gillett says the man recognized the truck driver as Zimmerman. The man says Zimmerman asked, "Do you know who I am?" and threatened to kill him.

    Two days later, the man says he saw Zimmerman in his truck outside his work. He called police but declined to press charges. His name hasn't been released.

    This does seem a little sketchy. A finger? Really? Was he threatening to poke your eyes out or something?

    Re: Police: Zimmerman accused of threatening driver

    I also find this article to be a bit lacking .

    - Apperson said he believed it was Zimmerman.
    - Apperson, who has a concealed-weapons license, was carrying a firearm at the time, according to the police report. ( a lot of good that did him)
    - Apperson said he didn't want to press charges. (makes me think he isn't so sure of the event)
    - Apperson declined to press charges again.

    So maybe Z did confront the guy and maybe he didn't. As far as the second incident, if Z had an appointment according to the statement: "Zimmerman told officers that he had an appointment at the address, according to the police report. Also located in the strip of businesses are a psychiatrist's office and a Christian counseling center."

    the article does not state if that checked out or not.

    Not sure how Z has a permit to carry anymore. But that is another issue.

    I was just reading this story and there are better articles. The police stopped and questioned Zimmerman, and he and the driver have had two incidents already. The guy has never pressed charges though.

    Maybe he has no permit for carrying said finger.

    How would GZ have known where he worked? God, I wish that guy understood the definition of "low profile."

    Who said he did?

    "It seems like the guy is sitting there, waiting for me," Apperson told a dispatcher in another 911 call. "It's disheartening to see him lurking around here."

    Seems like the guy is paranoid.


    Zimmerman told officers that he had an appointment at the address, according to the police report. Also located in the strip of businesses are a psychiatrist's office and a Christian counseling center.

    Show he doesn't.


    It is quite odd that this person called the police on Zimmerman twice yet doesn't want to press any charges.
    Maybe given his dislike of Zimmerman, he is making things up like others have.
    With his comment of "disheartening to see him lurking around here", seems that something is wrong with the guy.

    George Zimmerman threatened to kill man in road rage incident, Florida police say

    LAKE MARY, Fla. - George Zimmerman threatened to kill a driver during a road rage incident in Lake Mary and later showed up at the man's workplace, according to police.
    Of course Zimmerman's side of the story will be that he was just standing his ground, even though he stalked the guy for a whole day after threatening to kill him. I think Zimmerman has always been a couple of sandwiches short of a picnic, which is why the wackos in Florida support him. LOL. /snark
