As new breaks that George Zimmerman has been arrested again after a frantic 911 call from soon-to-be ex-wife Shellie, Twitter has reacted with a mixture of the opposite of surprise and caustic comments.
George Zimmerman has been stopped, but not arrested, in the tumultuous weeks since his acquittal. In addition to speeding stops, the man who shot Trayvon Martin also featured briefly in a dramatic car rescue, prompting a social media rumor that the tale had been planted by his camp.
The new George Zimmerman arrest will be a tough one to spin, particularly if loyal wife Sherrie — who was charged with perjury for protecting her then-hubby — has flipped on Georgie so quickly.
Over on Twitter, the reaction was mixed, with users tweeting:
George Zimmerman was probably just trying to get his sports memorabilia back.
