On Monday, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office stated via a press release that George Zimmerman received a criminal summons for stalking. This summons came as a result of accusations that Zimmerman harassed and threatened a man named Dennis Warren multiple times between December 16-25 of 2017.
Warren, for those who may be wondering, is a private investigator who was hired by a production company (Cinemart Productions) that was working with Jay Z while putting together a docu-series on the life of Trayvon Martin. Martin, as you no doubt know, was shot and killed by Zimmerman in 2012. Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder a year later.
Warren had told police that he and producer Mike Gasparro had initially contacted Zimmerman on September 21 to ask if he was interested in participating in the documentary, which is titled Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story.
Zimmerman allegedly called Warren 55 times, left 36 voicemails, and sent him 27 emails, plus 67 texts, in the nine-day period mentioned above. According to The New York Daily News, Zimmerman sent Warren a link to an article from media site The Blast in which he was quoted as saying "I know how to handle people who fuck with me, I have been since February 2012." He also allegedly wrote to Warren: "Anyone who fucks with my parents will be fed to an alligator." And, when asked by Warren to stop contacting him, he allegedly stated "I'll show up at your home you FUCKING PUSSY!!!"
Police added that the threats pertained to "direct involvement in contacting and soliciting the potential participation of [Zimmerman's] family members for the production."
Zimmerman's arraignment is scheduled for later this month on May 30.
