Karma is a Bitch (or this is just Florida)

I don't know how many more times I'm going to write about George Zimmerman, the man who killed an unarmed teenager named Trayvon Martin and got away with it...Old boy can't seem to keep himself out of trouble and out of the news....He's been in six different incidents since he was acquitted of murdering 17 year old Trayvon Martin...

Yesterday he got shot!

Yeah that's right...but relax...He's alright!

George Zimmerman, the former Neighborhood Watch volunteer who shot and killed Trayvon Martin in 2012, suffered facial injuries yesterday after a shooting at a busy intersection in Lake Mary.
Police identified the other person in the shooting as a man Zimmerman had an altercation with in September, police said.

George Zimmerman was released from a hospital in Sanford today with some kind of facial wound, possibly from flying glass or some other type of debris.

"I don't believe he had a direct hit with a bullet," said Don West, Zimmerman's attorney.
News footage showed what appeared to be a bullet hole in the passenger-side window of Zimmerman's Honda Ridgeline SUV.

It was towed from the scene by a wrecker.

The shooting took place at the entrance to Trailhead Park near Lake Mary Boulevard and Rinehart Road at about 1 p.m. yesterday..

George Paschek, a resident in a neighborhood behind the shooting scene, said he was working on his lawn when he heard what sounded like two gunshots.

"I heard it and I said, 'Boy, that sounds like gunshots,'" Paschek said.

He added that he went back to his yard work, thinking he had mistaken the noise.
"When the helicopters flew over I started looking at the news," he added, before describing his reaction at hearing who was involved: "Zimmerman! Holy smokes!"

 Lake Mary Chief Steve Bracknell said Zimmerman did not shoot, but a man shot at him.

An investigation is ongoing and no charges have been filed.
Police initially thought the shooting was a road-rage incident, but Bracknell said that might not be true.
Bracknell said the other man in the shooting is cooperating with police.

Zimmerman was involved in a road-rage incident on Lake Mary Boulevard with Matthew Apperson of Winter Springs in September.

In that case, Zimmerman allegedly threatened to shoot Apperson after he pulled his Honda Ridgeline truck next to the man's vehicle.

"George Zimmerman was the driver, and they were threatening to kick my [expletive] and to shoot me," the man told a 911 dispatcher.

At the time, according to Bracknell, the man did not want to press charges.

So Zimmerman was not arrested.

George Zimmerman was accused of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges in the Feb. 26, 2012 shooting death of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford.

A Seminole County jury acquitted him in July 2013.

Then the U.S. Department of Justice investigated.

But it said in February that George Zimmerman will not face federal civil-rights charges, citing a lack of evidence.

Since his trial, Zimmerman had several encounters with the police.

Twice he's been arrested, accused by girlfriends of getting violent during breakups, and in 2013, his estranged wife accused him of threatening her and her father with a gun while they were moving out her belongings.

He was arrested Jan. 9, accused by Lake Mary police of aggravated assault, but prosecutors backed away from filing criminal in the domestic-violence case because a woman, initially upset and angry, changed her story.

Yes...He's been very lucky so far....He was lucky again yesterday....but if he's not careful...one day...his luck will run out!
