George Zimmerman Accused of Stalking Investigator for Jay Z-Produced Trayvon Martin Documentary

Zimmerman issued summons for barraging private investigator with messages

George Zimmerman, who fatally shot black teenager Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, in 2012, has now been accused of harassing a private investigator working on a documentary about the Martin case, the Associated Press reported.

According the the AP, Zimmerman was issued a summons on May 3 for arraignment on a charge of misdemeanor stalking. The arraignment is scheduled for May 30.

Citing a sheriff’s report, the AP reported that the investigator contacted Zimmerman last year on behalf of filmmaker Michael Gasparro, who’s making a Jay Z-produced documentary about Martin.

The investigator subsequently received 55 phone calls, 67 text messages, 36 voicemails and 27 emails from Zimmerman in December, according to court records.

Zimmerman was acquitted of of all charges relating to Martin’s death. He has, however, been entangled in a legal issue or two since then.

The court records don’t list an attorney for Zimmerman, according to the AP.
