George Zimmerman was questioned by police around midnight on Sunday when they spotted him parked behind a motorcycle and gun store in DeLand, Florida. Zimmerman told police that he had been hired by the store manager as a security guard. But the manager has told the media and police that he never hired Zimmerman in any capacity, according to the AP.
Zimmerman told police that the owner asked him to be there to keep watch after a recent burglary, the police report states.
But Zimmerman is not employed by the store - "in no way, shape or form," as Pompano Pat's manager Sam Porter told the press emphatically. "He's not being paid to be act as a security officer or in any other way for Pompano Pat's."
The police didn't charge him because he was not committing a crime, according to the report.
Zimmerman had already been in the news earlier this week: he filed an appeal in his defamation lawsuit against NBC, who allegedly aired doctored recordings of Zimmerman that made him sound racist. The lawsuit was dismissed last month by a judge.
