SHARE Man who shot at George Zimmerman released on bail

LAKE MARY, Fla. — A man who shot at George Zimmerman during a confrontation along a busy central Florida road has been ordered by a judge to turn in his weapons and avoid contact with Zimmerman.

Matthew Apperson made his first appearance before a judge Saturday. The Orlando Sentinel reports he was released on $35,000 bail after being charged Friday with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and firing a missile into an occupied conveyance.

Zimmerman’s attorney said the former neighborhood watch volunteer was driving to a doctor’s appointment Monday when Apperson intentionally fired his gun into Zimmerman’s truck without provocation.

The passenger window of Zimmerman’s pickup had a bullet hole in it, and Zimmerman suffered minor injuries from flying glass and debris.

Zimmerman and Apperson were involved in a road-rage episode last September.
