Arrest report: mental health issues

18 May, 2015

Apperson’s arrest record says he has been dealing with mental health issues, with a police officer saying:

During the investigation, I learned that Apperson has exhibited unusual behavior in which he had recently been admitted to a mental institution. It appears that Apperson has a fixation on Zimmerman and has displayed some signs of paranoia, anxiety, and bipolar disorder.

Zimmerman’s attorney:

There wasn’t much explanation of Mr. Apperson’s conduct that made sense, the way that Mr. Zimmerman described.┬áIf he [Apperson] does have some mental issues I think that might very well go a long way in explaining what was otherwise very bizarre yet very violent behavior.
