Simmer down Zimmerman! – George Zimmerman arrested yet again
Florida neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman, who was acquitted in July of 2013 of all charges related to the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was arrested Wednesday morning in Tampa Florida, for apparently going on a drug induced rampage through the central business district of the city.
At 6:39 am, local time, 911 calls were made from central Tampa, stating that “George Zimmerman was “naked”, ranting about “N-words” and wielding a kitchen knife. Police swiftly arrived at the scene and found an obviously inebriated, fully bare Zimmerman standing in the middle of the a busy main street, shouting obscenities at black people, following cars and waving a knife around. After some struggle, the police were able to overpower Zimmerman and place him under arrest, but one police officer injured his hand badly in the altercation.
