George Zimmerman has been punched in the face at a Florida bar after bragging about killing Trayvon Martin, officials and witnesses said.
The former neighborhood watchman said he was clocked by a drunken diner who mistook him for someone else at the Gators Riverside Grille in Sanford around 5:00 p.m, Sunday, according to a police report.
But staff at the restaurant and witnesses countered the acquitted murderer’s account and said the incident was nothing more than a shoving match that stemmed from Zimmerman bragging about his notorious past.
“He said, ‘You don’t know who I am, do you?’ And Zimmerman said, ‘I’m George Zimmerman,’” Winters added.
Witnesses told investigators Zimmerman announced himself in the restaurant as the man cleared on self-defense grounds in the 2012 shooting of Martin.
“You’re bragging about that?” a man said as he approached the group.
“You better get the f– out of here you n–r lover, you ain’t welcome here,” the man told Zimmerman before punching him and breaking his glasses.
Zimmerman, recently auctioned off the 9-mm. handgun he used to kill the teen for $250,000. He was acquitted of shooting the unarmed 17-year-old in a 2013 trial
