(Orlando Sentinel) — The Winter Springs man accused of shooting at George Zimmerman in Lake Mary earlier this week must turn in his weapons and avoid contact with him, a judge ruled this morning.

“I don’t care whether you’ve been shopping at Publix for two hours and have a full cart of groceries, or whatever. You see Mr. Zimmerman walking through that door, you’re the one who has to leave,” Circuit Judge Michael Rudisill told Apperson during his first appearance this morning at the John E. Polk Correctional Facility.

Typically, people arrested are ordered to stay away from specific places where the people they are accused of attacking live or work. But in this case, Zimmerman did not want his whereabouts made public, Rudisill said.
