    This "article" is worthless. It tells zero details about the incident and the video only shows a truck being towed away.

    That's OK, Radd; for a discomfited few it's enough to make their sick and unhappy day.

    George Zimmerman’s attacker says he was acting in self-defense

    “He said, ‘My name is Matt Apperson and this has been an ongoing dispute between George and I. This isn’t the first time, this is the third incident and I shot him,'” Cornell said.

    After the Trayvon Martin killing many people said Zimmerman is a ticking time bomb, and predicted he'd hurt more people. He'd had incidents before Martin, and more since, and now this. The failure of the Martin jury to get Zimmerman off the streets will result in yet another tragedy, it's only a matter of time with this dangerous guy.

    I think the town and the lake were named with him in mind. icon_wink.gif

    Burning question: Is this Apperson guy "laying the groundwork" for a Stand Yo Ground 2nd Amendmenting of Georgie? "Gaming the System," if you will?

    Also a(nother) Dumb question: How does one go about "waving" their gun, as Apperson claims Georgie was doing? Do people actually do that, like, from side to side, to and fro? I'm thankful enough to have never seen this motion in action!

    Not a dumb question; you see it all the time in Film Noir flicks, usually accompanied by the following dialogue: "OK, hands up, and keep 'em up! Now (motioning by waving gun to left or right), move over there and stay quiet!"

    I doubt if Apperson's got the smarts to be laying he foundation for any kind of case.

    ‘I hope I got him this time’: Meet the road-raging gunman who shot at ‘fat f*ck’ George Zimmerman

    What? They didn't let him out after just a few hours? icon_razz.gif



    RawStoryMatthew Apperson surrendered Saturday to police on several charges and was released the next day on bond, reported WESH-TV.

    The 36-year-old Apperson is accused of firing a gun at Zimmerman’s vehicle May 11 as part of a long-running dispute with the former neighborhood watch volunteer who was acquitted in the fatal shooting of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin.

    The bullet struck the passenger-side window in Zimmerman’s truck, and shards of broken glass injured his face.

    Police said Apperson showed “unusual behavior” and appeared “fixated” on Zimmerman after the shooting last week.

    “I hope I got him this time,” officers overheard Apperson say.

    He was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and firing a deadly missile into an occupied conveyance.

    A judge set bond at $35,000 and ordered Apperson to surrender all of his guns and stay away from Zimmerman.

    Apperson will not be monitored by GPS because Zimmerman opted to keep his location unknown.

    “I don’t care whether you’ve been shopping at Publix for two hours and have a full cart of groceries, or whatever,” said Circuit Judge Michael Rudisill. “You see Mr. Zimmerman walking through that door, you’re the one who has to leave.”

    Police said the two men have been engaged in a dispute for months, including a September case when Apperson accused Zimmerman of trying to kill him in another incident on the road.

    Police said Apperson pulled up behind Zimmerman and said: “You remember me, you fat f*ck?”

    “You owe me your life,” Apperson said, according to Zimmerman’s statement to police. “The only reason I didn’t press charges on you is because I wanted to kill you myself.”

    Apperson claims he shot at Zimmerman in self defense last week, saying the 31-year-old waved a gun at him.

    But Zimmerman’s attorney denies his client brandished a weapon.

    Police seized a .40-caliber Glock 22 and a .357 revolver with one expended shell casing in the cylinder from Apperson — who has been arrested and convicted at least four times.

    Zimmerman was carrying a 22 Glock handgun during the incident, but his truck was not searched.

    He was accused in 2005 of punching the window of another driver’s car in a road rage incident, but the woman declined to press charges.

    Police have been called to Apperson’s Winter Springs home at least 15 times since July 2012.

    Sometimes he is really nice and sometimes he is really an off-the-wall person,” said neighbor Sharee Rivera, who said she had called police about Apperson at least three times in the past month.

    “He has threatened me, he has called me names, etc., etc., blown smoke in my face the same way he did the reporter’s face,” she added.

    Apperson has spent time in jail, although he has not been arrested in at least a decade.

    His attorney said Apperson had held a concealed carry permit for about 10 years.


    Is this story being told by Longfellow? 'Cause I can't imagine anything turning out more poetic. The poster child of Stand Yo Ground now finding himself on another whacko's Ground and dangerously close to getting Stood upon.

    Florida, you never cease to amaze me!
