Zimmerman Arrest Report

Weer’d got ahold of a copy of the arrest report [PDF] for George Zimmerman. Weer’d has a good summary of the report but the most intersting piece, in my opinion, is the following:

-When officers arrived Mr. Zimmerman was identified in the report as a “White Male”, he was cooperative with officers and identified himself as the man who made the 911 call. He was wet and had grass stains on his back. Also his nose and back of his head were injured. A Kel Tec PF9 was holstered on his belt and he allowed officers to confiscate it as evidence. (No information about ammunition, or spent shells is given)

Apparently this situation was entirely one sided if Zimmerman showed injuries and grass stains on his back. This doesn’t answer the biggest question though: who was the initiator of force. Did Zimmerman initiate force against Martin causing Martin to defend himself or did Martin initiate for against Zimmerman causing Zimmerman to defend himself? Then again the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) was called in to investigate the investigation so nothing in the police report may be truthful.

  1. Chris,
    There is a witness who claimed he say Martin on top of Zimmerman after which he ran inside to call 911, after which he heard the shot.


    I don’t know the veracity of the claim, but in the police report, Zimmerman makes a claim that he yelled for help and no one came which is consistent with this eyewitness’s claims. Report accessible here:


    Just sayin’…

    1. Yeah, it’s a circus at the moment. Personally I’m withhold judgement and merely making speculations because it’s a hot news item and therefore interesting to talk about. But if there was ever a case where I simply threw up my hands and said “I haven’t a clue what’s going on” it’s this one.
