George Zimmerman is in trouble with the law once more. Years after being acquitted for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin and other run-ins, his latest incident involves the use of racially offensive language, according to local reports.
Police were called to a bar close to Sanford, Florida on Wednesday to investigate a reported battery, says WKMG. It was a female friend of Zimmerman’s said to be involved in what brought an official to Corona Cigar Company bar, not him. However, when the deputy was delving deeper into the battery incident, Zimmerman’s actions that followed caught her attention.
He, who is alleged in the incident report to have a track record at this one bar, reportedly got angry at a waitress and took back the credit card as she was seeking the bill. Given the history of incidents, the manager saw Zimmerman fit as a trespasser and was further banned. The report then claims Zimmerman said this to the manager, “I didn’t know you were a (racial expletive) lover.”
His comments did not stop there, according to the Orlando Sentinel. Zimmerman filed a complaint that earlier a fellow customer, a black AME pastor, hit him and that he would press charges—though the incident report says that the pastor only pat his arm. When the deputy looked into this issue using witnesses and surveillance footage, the officer concluded that there was no need for legal action. Added to Zimmerman’s complaint, he called the deputy “an incompetent officer under qualified [sic] to flip burgers.”
