Jury selection begins in 2nd case for man accused of shooting at George Zimmerman


SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. - A man accused of shooting at George Zimmerman during a road-rage incident was in court Monday for jury selection in another case against him.

Seminole County prosecutors and Matthew Apperson's attorney worked to seat a jury in the second case against him.

Apperson is accused of violating his bond in the attempted murder case by allegedly urinating on his neighbor's doorstep.

Earlier this year, Judge Debra Nelson determined that there was enough evidence for a trial, based on testimony from neighbor Sharee Rivera.

Apperson's trouble started 13 months ago during his first road-rage encounter with Zimmerman along Lake Mary Boulevard, authorities said.

Zimmerman testified that Apperson nearly ran him off the road over the death of Trayvon Martin.

"He said, 'Real men hit with their fists and not with their gun,' and I should pick on someone my own size," Zimmerman said during testimony.

No charges were filed in that case.

But investigators said Apperson has a fixation on Zimmerman, and that in May, Apperson tracked him down again on Lake Mary Boulevard and allegedly shot at him.

The trial for Apperson's disorderly conduct case is set to begin at 9 a.m. Wednesday.
