George Zimmerman Questioned By Police for Threatening To Shoot Driver

Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell said that 35-year-old Matthew Apperson of Winter Springs, did not want to press charges, so there would be no arrest.
Tuesday morning, Apperson told a 911 dispatcher that he was driving his Honda Accord on Lake Mary Boulevard, made a U-turn heading west-bound, and a Honda Ridgeline truck pulled alongside of him. Apperson told the dispatcher, “George Zimmerman was the driver, and they were threatening to kick my ___ and to shoot me,”
It sounds as if someone else was in the truck with Zimmerman.
Apperson said he pulled into a Circle K to find a phone so he could call for help when the Ridgeline made a maneuver to block him and “almost hit my car.” Zimmerman “said he was going to shoot me dead,” Apperson told the dispatcher.
According to a police report, a store surveillance video showed that as Apperson was walking into the store, the Ridgeline left.
Apperson has a concealed weapons permit and was carrying a gun.
Two days later, Apperson called Lake Mary police again to report that he believed Zimmerman had followed him and was watching his movements. Lake Mary police arrived, found Zimmerman’s truck nearby, pulled him over and questioned him. Zimmerman said he was in the area for a doctor’s appointment.
Zimmerman was armed with a handgun that was taken from him during the approximate 8-minute exchange with the police. It was returned to him at the end of the exchange.
How’s that not being a public figure working out for you, George?
Watch Zimmerman’s body language.
