Raw: George Zimmerman, friend call 911 after getting punched (explicit language)
Zimmerman is considered the victim in this case, but witnesses inside Gators Riverside restaurant told authorities that the problem started because Zimmerman was bragging about killing the unarmed teen in 2012.
Witnesses said they overheard Zimmerman say to someone, “I love your tattoos. My name is George Zimmerman, you know, that guy who killed Trayvon Martin?” Witness said Zimmerman also showed his identification card.
The man accused of punching Zimmerman could face charges. His name has not been released.
It's not the first time Zimmerman’s acquittal has made him a target.
More than a year ago, Matthew Apperson was arrested and accused of trying to kill Zimmerman during a road rage incident.
