George Zimmerman, a local child killer who was acquitted for the murder of Trayvon Martin in 2012, says he was punched in the face in a Sanford restaurant over the weekend. 

According to WFTV, Zimmerman called 911 after a man overheard him boasting that he shot Trayvon Martin in a sad attempt to pick up a woman at Gator's Riverside Grille. 

Zimmerman was then punched square in the face. 

From WFTV: 
911 dispatcher: “What started the argument?” Zimmerman: “He recognized me. He told me he was going to kill me he told me he'd (expletive) shoot me and he punched me in the face.”

Zimmerman claimed he was explaining to people sitting at a table that he shot Trayvon Martin in self- defense when a large man approached and asked, “You're bragging about that?” before punching him Zimmerman in the face.

Zimmerman: “This man just punched me in the face.” Dispatcher: “Is he still there?” Zimmerman: “Yup. He said he's going to kill me. You need to send like three or four cops.” 

Witnesses said they overheard Zimmerman say to someone, “I love your tattoos. My name is George Zimmerman, you know, that guy who killed Trayvon Martin?”
