Matthew Apperson arrested in George Zimmerman shooting

Matthew Apperson, the man accused of shooting at George Zimmerman Monday, has been arrested.

Lake Mary police arrested Apperson Friday on one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and one count of firing a deadly missile into a vehicle.

In the arrest report, officers said Apperson appeared to be fixated with Zimmerman.

The arrest report stated that Apperson told the cops that Zimmerman pulled a gun at him while he was driving and said ‘I’m going to kill you.”

But Zimmerman told Lake Mary police he never threatened Apperson, and police believed him.

In fact, Zimmerman told police Apperson threatened him, yelling, “You owe me your life. The only reason I didn’t press charges on you is because I wanted to kill you myself.”

Apperson turned himself in Friday. He’s being held without bond.

Apperson’s attorney Mark NeJame issued the following statement:

“We received word a couple of hours ago from the Lake Mary Police Department that a warrant had been issued for the arrest of Matt Apperson. We immediately scheduled for him to meet with law enforcement so he could be arrested and booked. He has done so. There are 3 counts; Aggravated Battery w a Firearm, Aggravated Assault w a Firearm and Shooting into an occupied vehicle. Bond is set at $35,000 and his release has been arranged.

“We expected this as Mr. Apperson, under the advice of counsel and exercising his Constitutional right did not provide additional statements to law enforcement. He had already made statements and this is deemed sufficient, as of now. Mr. Zimmerman apparently did make statements and as such, it appears a decision was made to arrest on the basis of Mr. Zimmerman’s statements. That is neither unusual nor was it unexpected.

“The case will proceed through the criminal justice system appropriately and ultimately a determination will be made as what truly happened. Mr. Apperson will continue not to comment until such time as it may be deemed appropriate.”

Police said Apperson fired at Zimmerman’s truck along Lake Mary Boulevard Monday near Rinehart Road.

Zimmerman wasn’t hit by gunfire, but he was sprayed with glass as a bullet flew through the vehicle’s window and narrowly missed his head, according to his attorney, Don West.

West said Zimmerman was in town for Mother’s Day and was on his way to the doctor when he noticed Apperson following him. He made a U-Turn, and Apperson followed, West said. Then, he said, he caught up with Zimmerman and pulled along side his truck and fired a bullet into the side window.

Lake Mary police said they found two handguns inside Apperson’s vehicle: a .40-caliber Glock 22 and a 357 revolver. Detectives also recovered one expended shell casing in the revolver’s cylinder.

A Glock 22 handgun was recovered from Zimmerman during the course of the investigation, but detectives have not yet conducted a search of his truck.

Apperson is the same man who claimed Zimmerman threatened to kill him in September 2014. Apperson said Zimmerman asked him, “Do you know who I am?” during that road confrontation. No charges were filed in the September incident.

This is just the latest troubling incident for Zimmerman, who was acquitted in 2013 of the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

That last sentence is the kicker. The media is still trying to imply that Zimmerman was somehow at fault. That makes twice now that the media had George Zimmerman convicted of a crime when it turned out that he was the actual victim.

The original shooting earlier this week was breaking news. Progressives were positively gleeful when they heard that Zimmerman had been shot in the face. They were disappointed to learn that he was still alive.

As of this morning, many of the blogs and media outlets that posted stories about the shooting within moments of the event have yet to acknowledge this latest update. I won’t hold my breath.

Apperson is facing up to 60 years in prison.

    This Apperson fella is apparently some piece of work.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Good thing he’s white, a black man would be hailed a hero, sadly, true. Meanwhile, Cleveland’s next up to be destroyed…..

      • I thought there might be riots here last week when a 19 year old man died during police transport, but then I saw that he was white, so his life didn’t matter since his death couldn’t be exploited.

        • leslie says:

          We have ongoing protests in Waukegan as I write. A 17y/o (AA) was shot twice in the back by a LEO (white). There are no charges against him. should be a fun weekend. The banner being carried in the streets is a product of the Revolutionary Communist Party.

        • DeniseVB says:

          We have a similar situation brewing locally when a young black choir boy (not really) reached for a racist white officer’s gun after robbing a Walmart …. and was shot dead. The outrage (fanned by the local media) was that it was an overreaction by the cop, he should have just tasered him or something. I think a local judge put a gag order on everybody, including the media, until the investigation is over. So, has the seed has been set in the minds of the professional provocatuers to include this on their 2016 Tour of Destruction when the results come in ?

          I found the initial report, haven’t heard much about it since……

          • leslie says:

            I blame Walmart. If they didn’t have everything in the world at reasonable prices, there would be no reason for shoplifters to be there. Time to boycott low-cost stores.
            Good on the judge for the gag order. That should be the standard. Then we might be able prosecute without the race baiters stirring up everyone and creating so much trouble.

          • DeniseVB says:

            LOL ! I got caught shoplifting as a teen in a Woolworth’s by “Paul Blart” who I didn’t know was watching me put that Cover Girl compact in my purse. I will never forget him for ending my life of crime right there. He simply said put it back and never come back in this store again or I’ll ship you off to prison. Toughlove 🙂

    • 49erDweet says:

      That statement from A’s attorney is a classic in clarity and brevity. He’s obviously not being paid by the word. It should be recorded as a form statement, with appropriate fill in the blank spots) for the use of every defense attorney in the country.

      What is redacted? An address obviously in part but what does the rest say? And why redact? The “I hope I got him this time.” and blabbing like an idiot until he realizes he is in deep shit and clams up is noteworthy. I hope this helps with Zimmerman’s lawsuits against the media for demonizing him and stirring up the nuts.

    • Lulu says:

      I’m starting to think she has had some mini-strokes.

    • DeniseVB says:

      That’s quite a pivot from her ‘safe,legal,rare’ mantra, which I totally agreed with.

      • Lulu says:

        Yes. I completely agree. So is her immigration position. I guess she is “evolving”. She appears no longer to be a moderate but a radical. Good luck with that. Good for fundraising bad for votes.

        • DeniseVB says:

          This is not 2008 Hillary, this is Pandering Hillary using the Obama playbook. “If you can’t dazzle them with your brilliance, baffle them with your bullsh*t”. Carly Fiorina is the only one calling her on that. Paraphrased “FLOTUS,Sen, SoS are titles not accomplishments. Flying in an airplane is not an accomplishment, it’s an activity”. I like her spunk.

          • Lulu says:

            Carly is from Texas. I didn’t know that until I happened upon her father’s bio. Her father was a law professor and federal appeals judge (Ninth circuit) and her mom was an artist. Very interesting parents. I think Hillary lost her way when she let ambition overrule common sense when she took the SOS job. I am not even really paying attention to her anymore.

          • 49erDweet says:

            Yeah, I’d like to hear a rerun of that Bill-Hil conversation when Senator Clinton was considering her cabinet offer. “What could possibly go wrong?”

    • mothy67 says:

      I’d love to see a hard hitting ad with a picture of picture of a near viable 5 month fetus juxtaposed against the picture of the Boston Marathon bomber asking “guess which one Hillary/O’Malley thinks deserves a chance at life(hint one aleady threw his away)?”
      By the way I think O’Malley is being set up for VP.

      • Lulu says:

        Can he keep his shirt on is the big question about O’Malley? He is a nice looking, healthy middle aged man but really. It is tacky and juvenile and hillbilly-ish.

        • mothy67 says:

          I know is he trying for something like Putin. Does not work. Putin came off as virulent. Mikey as metro sexual. Waxing and hiar care products, and endless selfies are not necessary political attributes. Still throw up a little in my mouth when I think of the reporters gone wild video of the women losing it over o. Staged. Gross.

        • 49erDweet says:

          Are you talkin’ ’bout O’Selfey?

      • DeniseVB says:

        For VP he’d have to be a real pitbull against the GOP and leave Hill unscathed. I’m still hoping for Jim Webb to jump in just because he hates political b.s.😉

        • Lulu says:

          I really like Jim Webb but he is a real loose cannon. Like no filter between his excellent brain and his mouth loose cannon. Brave, intelligent, touchy, Born Fighting. That book was an autobiography. He cleans up nice but he will still kick your ass.

        • mothy67 says:

          Media is already filling that role. I see Hill for one term so as to not alienate and give her the historic first per promise then shirtless. The will of the people be damned. Donna Brazille who I can never remember having voted for anything wll have more sway than HRC who is puppeting every DNC talking point verbatim.

  4. DeniseVB says:

    I remember the initial headlines, from the usual suspects, “Zimmerman involved in another shooting!!!!!!!!!” and it made me click. I hated that the info was also framing GZ in a “rage” incident without details.

    In contrast, I saw a blip about Princess Casey of Anthony out for a jog enjoying her new life. :facepalm:

    • Lulu says:

      This asshole chased, verbally abused, then shot Zimmerman. The media is playing down the fact that he was hurt by flying glass. NO BIGGIE says the media because he wasn’t shot in the head. If it was anyone else they would be aghast at the injuries. Remember having your head beaten into concrete was nothing either. And the terror of having these loons (yes Trayvon was a drugged up loon) attack you for nothing is no big deal either per the media. If you watch the media who were mugged in the riots they act like they have PTSD. Zimmerman is just supposed to shrug it off because he deserves it.

      • mothy67 says:

        Where is even a tincture of personal responsibility? The initial manipulation by NBC begat this miscarriage which has enabled, compelled Ferguson, Baltimore. What lot of loss of life and property have they created from their false narratives? Do they not think ISIS sees how easily our major cities have been shut down? A very tumultuous time when we should be putting forward a sense of can’t do that here instead the media salivates over lawlessness.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I know an ISIS flag appeared at the Ferguson protests, stupid anarchists.

        • Lulu says:

          ISIS is there recruiting. Prisons, nut forums online, and riots are great places to recruit. It is simple marketing principles. Go where you can sell your product.

          • mothy67 says:

            Obvious to anyone with a pea sized brain, but the media will act as if blind sided. No one even speaks of the JV team screw up but jeb has to answer for his brother. . MSM is beneath contempt.

          • Lulu says:

            I think a lot of the media is simply stupid. They do what they are told. The bosses are politicos placed in media. Like the organ grinder monkey Stephani-whatever. They get their big bucks then have to do a stint for peanuts (to them) in government and the wife or hubby has a media job too. Revolving door, etc. Laws could be passed prohibiting that. No media work or university jobs (indoctrination profs) for say three years after leaving government job. The screaming would be terrible.

          • 49erDweet says:

            Lulu is right. “I think a lot of the media is simply stupid. They do what they are told.” Many are scrambling, scrambling, scrambling most of the day to film short video “interviews” on hot topics with persons other than themselves with which to fill air time. They have zip time to ponder the meaning of life. I get two or three calls from them a month and while young, clean and polite, they are not bright.

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            They not only miss that ISIS hates women, Jews and gays but that blacks are not exactly their favorite group either. But stupid assholes are useful since they just get blown up anyway.

      • 49erDweet says:

        LOL! The media has boxed itself in on the side of a wacko sicko psycho. They can’t win! Suicide by dogma! ROFL!

  5. elliesmom says:

    One of my former students linked this on my FB page. She is someone I cautioned repeatedly about doing things the internet would never forget. While George Zimmerman and Monica Lewinsky have nothing in common except for how the media has vilified them both, her impassioned plea for a more civilized and compassionate online community could certainly apply to the way he’s been treated. I was very impressed with 40-something Monica.

    Weirddave at AofSHQ:

    I thought I would go a different direction this week. We’ve talked about all kinds of “important” stuff, but now perhaps it’s time for a simple “how to” post. All of us here at AoS HQ have used this method to become richer than the dreams of avarice, and I think it’s time to share the secret with the masses. My co open bloggers and the COBs disagree, but I’m trying to sneak this one by them without them noticing. Copy this post and tweet it far and wide, post it to Facebook and Myspace, tell you mother and her friends. Get this info out fast, because once the powers that be realize that I’ve let the cat out of the bag, this post will be deleted with extreme prejudice. Are you ready? OK, here we go, here’s the foolproof method that anyone can use to get rich, rich, rich:
    Go up to Joe Biden and ask him if he’s got two tens for a five. Repeat until rich.

    Simple, huh? Don’t thank me now, send me gold plated somethings once you’re rich. (Just as an aside, Joe Biden was elected to the Senate in 1973. I was 5 at the time. In the 40+ years that he has been a senator or VP, he has amassed a fortune of $600K. Seriously, $600K. That’s it. Harry Reid was elected in 1987, and he now owns half of Nevada. (kidding: Net worth, $10 Million) How monumentally incompetent do you have to be to spend 40 years in the Senate and come out worth less than ¾ of a million dollars? Shit, maybe he’s not stupid, maybe he’s…..honest? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Sorry, forgot myself.)

    All kidding aside, I want to focus on two things, interest rates and regulations. First up, the near zero interest rates that the Fed has been enforcing are not indicative of a healthy economy. In a healthy economy interest rates naturally rise. Why? Because investment money is valuable and people will compete for it. In a healthy economy, entrepreneurs can take money and turn it into profit; if I have a million dollars, Entrepreneur 1 will offer me 4% to lend it to him and Entrepreneur 2 will offer me 5% to lend it to her. They both think they can use my money to prosper, so they bid for me to lend it. This isn’t happening.

    The fact that it isn’t happening should be a neon sign that the so called “recovery” that we’re in is nothing of the sort. In fact the Fed is keeping interest rates low, primarily due to self interest: They are borrowing money at an unprecedented rate. Low interest rates are the only way that they can even believe that that’s affordable (it isn’t). That’s all well and good, but low interest rates mean “easy money” to individuals and corporations with resources. That means that they have the ability to raise capital at what is close enough to no cost to them as to make it basically free.

    Now we’ll bring the second part of the puzzle into play. Regulations. We live in an age of unprecedented federal regulation (ask Alex the Chick about the delegation doctrine sometime. Don’t do it around children or they will learn lots of new words). The feds burden businesses with more and more new regulations that they have to follow, so businesses work harder and harder to comply with new regulations. That means that they hire teams of lawyers and accountants and administrators just to make sure they comply with regulations. Never mind that compliance consumes more and more resources that should be used to improve the product or service that the business offers, it’s a level playing field, all of the competitors have to pay for large compliance departments as well. It’s a huge waste of money, but at least it’s a waste that applies equally.

    But now lets put those two together. Like mixing bleach and ammonia, the result is deadly. Follow me here.

    Low interest rates mean that money is “free”. If not free, near enough to free that it makes no difference. Oppressive regulations mean that every company spends a considerable amount of their resources on compliance. What does that give us?

    Well, say we have two companies, both of them in the business of feeding random owls. Both of them are spending 15% of their revenue just to make sure that they comply with all federal regulations. Company A gets the idea that they will buy company B because reasons. They are able to borrow the money to do so because interest rates are artificially low (easy money). Once they buy company B, they naturally seek to consolidate operations, and where as before the merger both companies had to maintain individual regulatory compliance divisions, now those functions are redundant at what had been company B. Being comfortable with their own compliance division, company A fires all of the people in company B’s compliance division.

    So what has happened? Well, a dozen people from company B’s compliance division are now out of work, and that’s a big deal in the corporate profit world. Suppose those people had salaries that totaled $3 million. Getting rid of them means company AB now has $3 million that it didn’t have before. By eliminating company B’s compliance division because it’s redundant, company AB shows an instant profit without doing anything. It hasn’t improved its product, it hasn’t offered better owl catering services, it hasn’t contributed at all to the economy. It’s a paper profit.

    Now don’t get me wrong, there is a place in the business world for companies to merge, and often times there are efficiency bonuses to be had because of it. However, in this particular case, there was no reason for the takeover except to take paper profits, and this has been happening a lot lately. If you’ve ever wondered why the stock market is constantly going up, up, up, yet your day to day experience tells you that the economy ISN’T getting better, this is one big reason. Yes, many companies are profitable, but they are profitable without production, and this is one way they do it. The explosion of regulation creates not a level playing field, but one that is slanted such that only large corporations can navigate it, and make money doing so, by absorbing their smaller competitors, leaving the consumer with fewer choices. Competition is the gasoline that fuels the economy of the country, and this administration’s policies work together to eliminate it, while still allowing the wealthy and connected to profit. Ever wonder just why businesses get in bed with Democrats (and Republicans, unfortunately) when it seems from a logical, ethical and free market point of view that they shouldn’t be? This is one big reason why.

    Bad Cop, No Donut:

    Jessica Cooke, a 21-year-old from Ogdensburg, New York, recently graduated from SUNY Canton with a degree in law enforcement leadership and had already applied for a job as a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agent when she was surprised by an impromptu final lesson at a CBP checkpoint on Route 37 in Waddington last week. What she learned—that people who insist on their constitutional rights in this setting run the risk of being roughed up and shot with a stun gun—should help make her a better CBP agent, although CBP may not see it that way.

    Cooke was driving from Norfolk to her boyfriend’s house in Ogdensburg, the northern border of which is the St. Lawrence River. If you cross the river, you are in Canada, but Cooke was not crossing the river. She nevertheless became subject to the arbitrary orders of CBP agents by driving through one of the country’s many internal immigration checkpoints, which can be located anywhere within 100 miles of the border (a zone that includes two-thirds of the U.S. population). For some mysterious reason, she was instructed to pull into a secondary inspection area, where she used her cellphone to record a five-minute video of the stop (below).

    After presenting her driver’s license, Cooke, who surely learned in college that police (and even CBP agents!) need “reasonable suspicion” to detain someone, asks why she was pulled over. “You guys have no reason to be holding me,” she says. A male agent who identifies himself as a supervisor has no explanation for the detention, but he says Cooke will have to wait for a drug-sniffing dog to inspect her car. “Well, they’d better be here soon, because if not, I’m calling 911, and this can all be figured out,” Cooke says. “You guys are holding me here against my will.” Eventually the female agent who first interacted with Cooke says she seemed nervous—an all-purpose excuse for detaining someone, since people tend to be nervous when confronted by armed government officials.

    “Why do you want to get in my trunk when you have no right to?” Cooke asks. That question also reflects a potentially disquieting familiarity with Supreme Court decisions related to traffic stops. Just last month, the Court ruled that, in the absence of reasonable suspicion, police may not extend a traffic stop for the purpose of walking a drug-sniffing dog around the vehicle. But the Court also has said that if a dog alerts to a car (or, same thing, a cop claims that the dog alerted), that is enough by itself to supply probable cause for a search, even though there are lots of reasons (including a handler’s deliberate or subconscious cues) why a dog might alert to a car that contains no contraband.

    “If they’re not here within 20 minutes, I’m gone,” Cooke says. “You can leave,” the male agent says. “You can walk down the road right now….Your car’s not going anywhere….I’ll spike the tires.” After Cooke refuses to comply with his order to “stand over there” instead of “here,” they have this exchange:

    CBP agent: I’m going to tell you one more time, and then I’m going to move you.

    Cooke: If you touch me, I will sue your ass. Do you understand me?

    CBP agent: Go for it.

    Cooke: Touch me then.

    CBP agent: Move over there.

    Cooke: Go ahead. Touch me.

    CBP agent: I’m telling you to move over there.

    At this point the agent seems to grab Cooke, and soon she is lying on the ground, screaming. According to a CBP spokeswoman, the agent “deployed an electronic control device.” Naturally, the government is considering assault charges—against Cooke.

    While Cooke is rolling around on the ground, screaming in pain, the agent repeatedly orders her to “get on your stomach.” Her response: “What the fuck is wrong with you?” Also this: “Are you fucking retarded?” And this: “You fucking Tased me, you asshole!” These rejoinders do not have quite the same emotional impact as “I can’t breathe,” especially since Cooke survived the incident. Still, she asks good questions.

    The video ends at this point. But according to Cooke, the dog finally arrived, sniffed around her car, and did not alert. The agents opened her trunk anyway. They found no contraband.

      For those who want a national police force, go fuck yourselves.

    • 1539days says:

      That article was from Reason.com, a libertarian site. The police and law enforcement are not only being called racists by the left, but their inability to control their individual officers is being questioned by the right as well. To a large extent, the left is full of crap and over blowing every incident. The right is trying to fix a problem, not hamper the police in general.

      In these stops, the officers and agents often don’t understand the parameters of their duties. If you tell someone “Would you please pull over?” That is a question. They were told to ask it that way but don’t seem to understand that it is a question and a person has a right to say no. Saying no also does not constitute probable cause.

      I have become increasingly disturbed with the “war on terror” being used as an excuse for roughing up average citizens. I wouldn’t be surprised if these charges of racism was just an excuse to ignore the growing violations by police who are doing the bidding of the government.

    • 49erDweet says:

      Their sole mission during those stops is to ascertain citizenship status. They are not DEA agents. Now, it would not surprise me if DEA agents were “with them”, but CBP has no authority – other than by a show of armed force – to determine anything beyond one’s legal right to be on that road at that time. And that “task” takes about two seconds.
      This seems to have been a planned lawbreakers fishing expedition, and is sadly typical of overly federalized law enforcement efforts.
      And show of hands? Does anyone else here think they were working the WRONG border? WCPGW?

      • Myiq2xu says:

        “She seemed nervous” is not reasonable suspicion. They cannot detain someone indefinitely while they wait for a drug dog to arrive.

        • 1539days says:

          The sad part is that they can, even if they are not legally allowed to. Most people are intimidated enough to not assert their rights. The ones that do are often roughed up. Those people may end up with a civil settlement, but until there’s real accountability this will continue.

          • 49erDweet says:

            Individual federal peace officers are normally immune to money damage claims. If that were to be changed, a passel of false arrests wouldn’t be happening. Just sayin’.

          • 1539days says:

            Anytime I read “pass a law” I always think unintended consequences. I don’t want some bleeding heart judge giving $1 mil to every Black kid who claims some officer treated him mean. I don’t want scared cops, I want new policy manuals.

          • Somebody says:

            Are you serious 49er that federal LEO are immune?? When hubby was an ATC he wasn’t immune from squat. In fact he had to provide his own attorney to represent him if something had gone wrong, which thankfully never happened. The federal government’s attorneys would only be interested in protecting Uncle Sam NOT the controller…….the controller is on their own in that situation.

            That’s why so many ATC’s join the union, it’s not because they are gung ho about unions, it’s because the union will provide legal services for them. I can name quite a few incidents where a weekend pilot crashed a small plane and their family sued anybody and everybody they could. The controller that last talked to the plane has to lawyer up in that situation, often their supervisor too. 9 times out of 10…..it was pilot error. Sometimes it’s mechanical failure, then whoever did the maintenance or the manufacturer is on the hook…..and sometimes it was none of the above instead the cause was weather related.

            I thought all federal employees were personally liable. I had no idea that some had immunity, well except for high ranking assholes like Lois Lerner.

      What a race! I loved watching American Pharoah and also the 2nd and third place contest was amazing. How funny, I had my eye on Tale of Verve on the last leg of the race. Wow!

    The Smartest POTUS ever strikes again!

    Yesterday, two Saudi crown princes arrived to meet with President Obama at the Oval Office, after King Salman refused to meet Obama at the Gulf summit or at the White House.

    White House officials should have been careful to make sure everything with the two top Saudi officials went smoothly — but instead, Obama flubbed on the deputy crown prince’s name and the name of the king who forged America’s relationship with Saudi Arabia, King Abdul Aziz ibn Saud.

    The prince sat stony-faced as Obama makes the error.

    Lil’ Kim of North Korea has had family members executed for less.

    Terrible incident on a Brooklyn subway platform yesterday. It happened in the afternoon. If these gangs aren’t controlled, people will soon be afraid to leave their houses. 😦
