George Zimmerman Threatened To Kill Driver In Road Rage Incident
7 News reports that, according to Lake Mary Police;
“…a man called 911 saying George Zimmerman threatened to kill him during a road rage incident.
The following day, the same man called 911 again and said Zimmerman was waiting for him at work, and he felt worried for his safety.
Lake Mary Police said they confronted Zimmerman, and he admitted to exchanging words with the man the previous day.”
Local 6 reports that the driver who was threatened did not want to press charges. Lake Mary Police spokeswoman Bianca Gillett reported that the unidentified driver told police that the other driver – who he had recognized as George Zimmerman – had pulled up next to him in a truck and yelled;
“Why are you pointing a finger at me?”
Zimmerman then asked; “Do you know who I am?” and threatened to kill him.
In a case that caused national outrage, Zimmerman was acquitted last year in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager. Since then, he has had numerous run-ins with law enforcement, including a couple of domestic violence incidents and three traffic violations.
In late July, The Orlando Sentinel wrote that Zimmerman had been spotted by Deland police in the early morning hours parked behind a gun store that had recently been burglarized;
“…Zimmerman is a friend of the owner, he told the officer, had permission to be there and would be parked near the store for a few nights, keeping watch, hoping to prevent another break-in…”
We will update this story as it develops. The 911 tapes are expected to be released soon.
