George Zimmerman has been in relative hiding since he was handed a not guilty verdict nine days ago, but ABC News reports the world's most controversial self-appointed neighborhood watchman was spotted last week pulling a family from a flipped SUV on I-4 in Sanford.

Sanford Police Department Capt. Jim McAuliffe confirms Zimmerman pulled a family from a truck after it was involved in a crash last week near the intersection of I-4 and Route 417. The crash involved only one vehicle, but a family of two parents and two children was inside the Ford Explorer when it flipped.

The incident happened less than a mile from where Zimmerman shot and killed Miami Gardens teenager Trayvon Martin.

In fact, the father whom Zimmerman helped knew his face.

"George Zimmerman pulled me out," he told firefighters when they arrived on the scene, according to Fox News.

No injuries were reported.

Fat boy gets pummeled by a string-bean teenager, but has enough strength to pull a family out of an overturned car.  If you believe all of that, you might be a Sanford police detective.  Less Mayberry and more Chelm.

Does this make sense?....NO! Zimmerman comes out of hiding at the exact right time and place to do a "heroic" deed?! WHATEVER! And if it was true so what?! He ain't save any lives...the car wasn't on fire or anything, so why is this news?! A few years ago a complete stranger pulled my fiance out of his burning car while he was unconscious. Now, he truly saved a life...where is his news coverage?!

In his "first known" public appearance since July 13th and he stumbles into a heroic life saving situation. I'm sorry but this smells of being staged. I realize that he is capable of doing it but the timing is very suspicious. I'd be interested in knowing who the 2nd man was who helped him in the rescue, maybe he was a film producer or a big time book publisher.A whole week later. No person name, from the Sanford police and Zimmerman, all a lie. P.R. stunt.Zimmerman is a sick individual who wants attention.   I don't remember you telling the story of Trayvon rescuing his father from a burning house at 9 years old and never arrested. i am i to believe this overweight man in his current state of fatness could pull a grown man from a truck but during is not so overweight days while fighting for his life, he wasn't able to push a 155lb teenager off of him???

Here's what happened", Zimmerman first approached Trayvon and asked him what he was doing there, Trayvon was scared and his first reaction was to run. Here's the thing Zimmerman grabbed Trayvon, and because of the pavement being wet, they both slipped. As a matter of fact,. Zimmerman hit his head on the pavement, and somehow,Right. But I happen to know Trayvon ended up on top of him. Trayvon hit him in the nose to try to get away. And How about this once he hit him in the nose and tried to get up, that`s when Zimmerman pulled his gun and shot him. if you look at the picture, the big picture, I mean, it's plain as day! He lied about his finances and the existence of a second passport there is no reason to believe anything else hey say. repeatedly stated he had never heard of FL's Stand Your Ground Law or had any knowledge of this law. Well, well, well; the record now reflects zimmerman professor taught this materials in his class, the same class he said zimmerman was "one of my better students he got a A" To the extent that he had some knowledge of self defense, he would have been able to put together a story that made some sense,”

@drakemallard @zappyb10 Drake,   put down the pipe.

DUDE, Everyone has a police scanner.  -there's and APP for that!  


I still want to hear how you think the confrontation went down...    Does it really matter who threw the 1st punch? (if they are beating you to death, and no escape possible...)


or, once the fight started, how could Zimmerman have done anything different? 


P L E A S E, tell me  your logic!
