Apperson is arrested on one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and one count of firing a deadly missile into a vehicle. Apperson turned himself into police and bond is set at $35,000. Police said they determined Apperson fired his gun at Zimmerman without provocation. Zimmerman’s lawyer says Zimmerman was in town for Mother’s Day and was on his way to the doctor when he noticed Apperson following him. He made a U-Turn, and Apperson followed. Then, he said, he caught up with Zimmerman and pulled along side his truck and fired a bullet into the side window. Apperson’s lawyer.
We expected this as Mr. Apperson, under the advice of counsel and exercising his Constitutional right did not provide additional statements to law enforcement. He had already made statements and this is deemed sufficient, as of now. Mr. Zimmerman apparently did make statements and as such, it appears a decision was made to arrest on the basis of Mr. Zimmerman’s statements. That is neither unusual nor was it unexpected.
