first_img For Whom The Bell Rings Add to My List In My List ‘It’s Fractured’: Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan On Healing Republican Party Related Stories Updated at 4:25 p.m.: New information from the Lake Mary Police added.The man who called 911 to report he was involved in a shooting with George Zimmerman appears to be the same person involved in a road rage incident with the former neighborhood watch volunteer last year.Lake Mary Police Officer Bianca Gillett said during a news conference Monday that Matthew Apperson called 911 to report the shooting. She says Zimmerman was not the shooter.Last September, Apperson said Zimmerman threatened to kill him, asking “Do you know who I am?” during a road confrontation in their vehicles. Apperson decided not to pursue charges, and police officers were unable to move forward without a car tag identified or witnesses.Gillett says investigators have not determined how or why the latest altercation began.Zimmerman’s attorney, Don West, said the bullet missed his client. West says Zimmerman was released from a hospital. Zimmerman was acquitted in 2013 of fatally shooting Trayvon Martin, in a case that sparked protests and national debate about race relations. The Justice Department later announced it was not bringing a civil rights case against Zimmerman.Since his acquittal, Zimmerman has had several brushes with the law.Those include two incidents involving allegations of assault by girlfriends, and his wife claiming he smashed her iPad.Charges were either dropped or not pursued because of a lack of evidence in those cases.
