*If you consider yourself a George Zimmerman hater, here’s some news that’ll bring a smile to your face. It seems somebody’s fist had a meeting with Georgie Porgie’s face the other day. However, the details of the clocking differ depending who’s telling the story.
The Z-man says he was punched by a drunken diner who mistook him for someone else at the Gators Riverside Grille in Sanford, Florida around 5:00 p.m. Sunday, according to a police report.
“This man just punched me in the face,” Zimmerman told a 911 dispatcher. “He said he was going to kill me. You need to send three or four cops.”
However, that’s not the story the staff at the restaurant and witnesses are recounting, according to the NY Daily News. They say the the incident was nothing more than a shoving match that was the result of Zimmerman bragging about his notorious past. Specifically killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin and getting away with it by being acquitted by a jury.
“They shoved each other and that was the end,” Gators Riverside Grille owner Edward Winters told The News.
“He said, ‘You don’t know who I am, do you?’ And Zimmerman said, ‘I’m George Zimmerman,’” Winters added.

Witnesses told investigators Zimmerman announced himself in the restaurant as the man cleared on self-defense grounds in the 2012 shooting of Martin.
“You’re bragging about that?” a man said as he approached the group.
Zimmerman told the Orlando Sentinel Thursday that his drunken assailant, identified in the police report as “Eddie,” thought he was Matthew Apperson, the man accused of shooting at Zimmerman during a road-rage confrontation last year.

But this is where it gets even a little weirder … or ironic if you will. Check out what Zimmerman says the puncher said to him:
“You better get the f*ck out of here you n*gger lover, you ain’t welcome here,” the man told Zimmerman before punching him and breaking his glasses.
The man then fled on a blue Harley Davidson motorcycle.
“He told me he was going to kill me, he told me he’d f*cking shoot me, he punched me in the face,” Zimmerman told the 911 dispatcher.
Sounds like poetic justice to us.
