Four days after he was acquitted of murder, George Zimmerman stepped out of seclusion to help a family get out of an overturned vehicle in Florida, authorities said.


George Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman and another man helped four people get out of an SUV that had overturned Wednesday evening in Sanford — the same community where the former neighborhood watch volunteer fatally shot teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012 — Seminole County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Heather Smith said.

Authorities were called after the SUV went off the road and rolled over in the area of Interstate 4 and State Road 46. By the time a deputy arrived, Zimmerman and another man already had helped the two adults and two children out of the vehicle, Smith said.

Zimmerman did not witness the crash, and he left after making contact with the deputy, Smith said. No injuries were reported.

    The truth will get out sooner or later. This is a decent guy who got mugged by a wannabe punk. Punk lost. Not guilty verdict. End of conversation.

      Dailydebacle (debacle – haha), You're a scary person (as well as those who gave you a thumbs up). I hope you all don't accidentally kill your kid think i n g he was a "punk" and a "mugger."

        You been drink.i.ng Reverend Al's Kool Aid too long. This fiasco rivals his Tawana Brawley incident (google it if you're not familiar).

          You probably have no children, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, so I do not expect you, nor anyone else who support your comment on this matter, to ever understand…but we do, and that's why the protests must go on to protect our rights, our children's rights, and to change stupid self-defense-when-no-one's-around laws so that you can get away with murder.

    He hired a PR firm or he paid that family, and this is his first stunt as a super-hero, try i n g to redeem his reputation. If it is true, he's got a lot of redeem I n g to do for himself. But I don't b l a m e GZ alone. It's the entire system, the p o l I c e, our culture, the b a d folks/punks/t h u g s, the good folks, d o g-matic ones too, the r a c i s t s folks, the music videos, even the a d u l t shows (and I'm not talk i n g about p o r n) – h e c k, it's the American way of life – s c a r e d folks, who, actually, don't take the time (or have no time or just don't care) to be sensitive to other r a c e s and cultures and understand them.

    All you Zimmerman supporters, wake up. You will find out he's a fraud and this was set up by Zimmerman to clear his name – well, not actually – he just wants to be a super-hero! Poor guy!

    Like Octomom, he's an Octoneighbor…tak i n g advantage of the system and his celebrity in more than one way, but always more than eight! LOL. He's a sleeze!
