“Do you know who I am?!”
This seemingly existential question has popped off the lips of far too many people who thought that their fame — or infamy — should precede them, preventing their needing to deal with lower life forms.
Less than a week ago, those words were reportedly uttered by Sarah Palin in the middle of a drunken brawl that ended with her son Track shirtless and flipping people off in the street.
And now, it’s said that America’s favorite chubby vigilante, George Zimmerman, is reportedly the latest to ask some poor hapless sod, “Do you know who I am?!”
A man in the Orlando, Florida area claims that George Zimmerman rolled up to his car on Tuesday and started screaming at him, angered that the man was pointing at him.
“Why are you pointing a finger at me?”, Zimmerman allegedly yelled at Matthew Apperson of Lake Mary, Florida. "Do you know who I am? I will kill you!”
“I looked over - George Zimmerman was the driver - and they were threatening to kick my ass and to shoot me,” Apperson reported. “I said, what are you going to do, shoot me? I’m not messing with you.”
The man drove to a gas station and called police. He said that Zimmerman followed him there “in an aggressive manner”, and threatened again to shoot him “dead”. By the time police arrived, Zimmerman was gone.
Apperson then saw Zimmerman in the same truck two days later, sitting outside his work. When police arrived, they this time confirmed that the man in the truck was, indeed, Zimmerman.
The man declined to press charges at that time. Zimmerman claimed he was just visiting a local doctor’s office.
