The guy who shot at George Zimmerman during a road rage incident this week … allegedly taunted Zimmerman moments before opening fire, yelling … “You remember me, you fat motherf****r?”
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.
Zimmerman told police Apperson pulled up behind him and started yelling the “fat” comment, and also … “You owe me your life. The only reason I didn’t press charges on you is because I wanted to kill you myself.”
Moments later Apperson pulled up next to Zimmerman’s truck and fired one shot into his vehicle.
Apperson tells a slightly different story … claiming Zimmerman pulled out a gun and said, “I’m going to kill you” — prompting Apperson to shoot. Apperson’s maintained he fired in self defense.
