George Zimmerman‘s shooter is claiming self-defense, saying he was provoked moments before he fired his gun during their recent road rage incident.
Zimmerman, of course, is telling an entirely different story.
Matthew Apperson was arrested by Lake Mary PD on Friday and charged with 3 crimes –aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery, and firing a deadly missile.
According to police a detective on the crime scene overheard Apperson say, “I hope I got him this time.” As we’ve reported, Apperson and Zimmerman had another road rage incident last year — and cops say it appears Apperson is now obsessed with Zimmerman.
When police arrived at the scene, Zimmerman claimed that Apperson came up behind him, proceeded to call him “fat,” and stated:
You owe me your life. The only reason I didn’t press charges on you is because I wanted to kill you myself.
Apperson is claiming he fired in self-defense, saying that Zimmerman pulled out a gun with intentions to kill him.
