Police: Zimmerman accused of threatening driver

[Obviously, we're not talking about Zimmerman.]

"A driver says George Zimmerman, the man acquitted of murdering Trayvon Martin, threatened to kill him, asking 'Do you know who I am?' during a road confrontation in their vehicles, a police spokeswoman said Friday.

...
"George Zimmerman was the driver, and they were threatening to kick my ass and to shoot me," Apperson told a police dispatcher in a 911 call.

Apperson told the dispatcher that he pulled into a nearby gas station to use the phone since he didn't have his cellphone, and the truck followed him. Zimmerman drove the truck up to Apperson's car, blocking him in, Apperson said.

"He almost hit my car and he said he would shoot me then," said Apperson, who told the dispatcher that he never saw a gun in Zimmerman's truck. "Both of them were threatening to shoot me and kill me."

Apperson called police from the gas station, but the truck was gone by the time officers arrived. Apperson, who has a concealed-weapons license, was carrying a firearm at the time, according to the police report."


"Officers told Apperson that without other witnesses or clear video identifying the driver as Zimmerman, it would be difficult to make a case, the police report said. Apperson said he didn't want to press charges."

It was at this point that I was like. Ok, maybe Apperson is just someone with a hate on for Zimmerman, making up a story.


"On Thursday, Apperson said, he saw Zimmerman in his truck outside the disability benefits business where Apperson works.

"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.""

OK, now I'm thinking, 'This guy is maybe paranoid or delusional and thinks 'Zimmerman' is out to get him. As if Zimmerman would go follow someone around with a gun over something trivi...' [smacks forehead]


"Officers who responded to the call confirmed the truck driver was Zimmerman. In a police car video of two police officers questioning Zimmerman, an officer pulls out a gun from Zimmerman's waistband. Zimmerman shows him what looks to be a license."

I apologize for ever having doubting you, concealed carry licensed guy who did the right thing!
