UPDATE: George Zimmerman suffered minor injuries on Monday while in Lake Mary, Fla. (an Orlando suburb) at about 12:45 p.m. according the local police chief, Steve Bracknell.

In June 2013, Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting death of unarmed teen, Travyon Martin, 17, on February 26, 2012.

In September 2013, his estranged wife Shellie Zimmerman initially accused him of drawing a gun on her and her father, David Dean. An iPad that could have possibly recorded the domestic dispute was destroyed by George. He was upset because she was “taking property that was not agreed upon and he began taking pictures and recording the items.”

In November 2013, he was arrested and accused of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief after a fight with his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, 27, at their rented home in Apopka, Fla. She refused to cooperate with the investigation and police.

In January 2015, he was involved in another domestic incident. He threw a wine bottle at girlfriend Brittany Brunelle, 28.She described him as “insane,” “suicidal” and “a psychopath. … Why that man is not locked up is beyond me,” she said. She recanted her story and refused to cooperate with investigators when the prosecutor issued a subpoena.

On Monday, Zimmerman was involved in a road rage incident with Matthew Apperson who has had several disputes with him.There was a bullet hole in the passenger window of the vehicle Zimmerman was in and he walked to the ambulance normally, showing no significant injuries. The bullet missed his head but he was sprayed with glass from his windshield.

Last September, Apperson claimed Zimmerman threatened to kill him. Lake Mary Police Department have not taken any actions against Zimmerman, an admitted killer and obvious threat to society, because there were no witnesses or evidence (a video) to move forward with an investigation or an arrest.
