Zimmerman was recently accused of stalking, which is how these court documents and his debt came to light. The Issue Summons in Seminole County Florida states “George Michael Zimmerman did willfully, maliciously, and repeatedly follow, harass, or cyberstalk another person, Dennis Albert Warren.”
Law enforcement sources state Zimmerman phoned the victim, a private investigator, 55 times, left 36 voicemails, texted 67 times and sent 27 emails in a nine-day span in December 2017. The private investigator claimed he feared for his life and requested a restraining order the following March, which the Florida judge denied May 30, 2018. According to the affidavit, Warren first came into contact with Zimmerman in September 2017 when the production company, Cinemart hired him. Cinemart is producing a documentary on Martin’s life. The affidavit said Warren simply left a voicemail stating the film production company would like to include Zimmerman in the documentary.

According to the report, Zimmerman texted the producer making threats because the filmmakers sought to also include his family members in the film.
“Dennis is a (expletive) who bothered my uncle in his home. Local or former law officer, he’s well on his way to the inside of a gator as well. 10-4?” Zimmerman texted the producer, states to the report.
It was at this point that Warren started receiving the numerous phone calls, texts and voicemails. Within two days Warren received 21 phone calls, 38 text messages and seven voicemails.
The affidavit states Zimmerman texted statements to Warren such as, “Answer your phone (expletive).” and “I’ll see you before you realize it.”
The affidavit continues stating Law enforcement advised in Warren’s presence to text Zimmerman to stop texting him. Immediately Zimmerman texted “No!” then the next text was “Text me again. I’ll show up at your home you (expletive).” He the forwarded to the private investigator in the text exchange an interview Zimmerman did with TheBlast.com in 2012 where he said anyone who (expletive) with me will get fed to the alligators, the report states.
When a law enforcement officer called Zimmerman to inquire about allegations, he called her a whore, according to the report.
“What are you calling me for you (expletive) whore,” Zimmerman asked the sergeant, according to the affidavit.
The debt issue came to light when Zimmerman claimed he could not afford an attorney to defend himself. He told the Seminole County court in the documentation that he was $2.5 million in debt with no income, and therefore needed a court appointed attorney. The court filed documents state Zimmerman is unemployed with $0 in cash, assets, bank accounts and equity in property. Zimmerman also in 2016 put the gun he used to kill Martin up for auction on United Gun Group Website. It reportedly sold for $138,900 in an auction that was disrupted by fake bidders that made the bidding soar to $68 million, including one fake bidder by the name of “Racist McShootface.”
