George Zimmerman has been charged with misdemeanor stalking after allegedly threatening a private investigator hired by a company producing the Trayvon Martin documentary, which is also produced by Jay-Z.
According to court records out of Seminole County, Florida, and obtained by The Blast, Zimmerman is accused of stalking a private investigator named Dennis Warren. Investigators say Warren was hired by Cinemart Productions to track down people to participate in the documentary about Trayvon Martin.
Warren said he left one voicemail for Zimmerman to participate, but then in December 2017 he claims Zimmerman called 55 times, left 36 voicemails, texted him 67 times and sent 27 email … over 9 days.
According to the documents, police made contact with Zimmerman in January, but he yelled obscenities at the officers like: “What are you calling me for you fu*king whore!?” He also allegedly made crass comments regarding the police and their involvement with the Trayvon Martin case, saying “You have been involved with me since that Martin kid!”
The private investigator told police he was scared for the safety of himself and his family. Investigators also felt that Zimmerman’s knowledge of the P.I. and his whereabouts caused a legitimate concern.
Zimmerman was served with a summons on May 3 and will be arraigned at the end of the month.
