George Zimmerman Threatens To Kill Man In Road Rage Incident, Reports Say
(AllHipHop News) George Zimmerman may have found freedom despite slaying Trayvon Martin, but he’s not helping the notion of innocence in a new case in Florida.
A recent report has stated that Zimmerman was involved in a road rage incident where he hurled death threats at passengers in another car.
The 30-year-old Zimmerman was was acquitted of second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon in 2013.
The recent incident happened on Tuesday when, police say, Zimmerman pulled his truck up next to him and yelled “Why are you pointing a finger at me?” Zimmerman then asked the other driver, “Do you know who I am?” and said he would kill him. The man then called 911.
The police just released the audio from the 911 calls today.
A local CBS affiliate in Miami chronicled the whole ordeal and posted the audio.
The man who identified himself as “Matt” said in the 911 call, “There was a passenger going, “Hey what’s your problem? Why are you shaking your finger?” I said, “Excuse me?…I looked over and it’s George Zimmerman who was the driver and they were threatening to kick my [expletive] and to shoot me! I said what are you going to do? Shoot me?”
The dispatcher then asks, “And you know this was George Zimmerman?” The man responds, “Oh, for a fact!”
“He then came up, in his ridgeline, this will be on camera, toward my car, almost hit my car, an aggressive move and said he was going to shoot me dead,” said Matt over the phone with a dispatcher.
“Are they still there,” asked the dispatcher. “They peeled off,” said Matt.
In the call the dispatcher asks Matt, “Just confirming this was all verbal. You didn’t see a gun or anything. This was just voiced to you?”The caller replied by saying, “That’s all verbal. He did not flash a gun.”
The man refused to press charged.
Zimmerman has had a number of run-ins with the law since being acquitted of murder.
