At 9:02pm on September 21, 2005, he called 911 about a stray dog on Skyline Drive. At 7:22pm on St. Patrick’s Day in 2005, he called 911 about a “pothole that is blocking [the] road.” Then there was the pile of trash in the road near the local Kohl’s, which he reported on November 8, 2010. “[Complainant] states it appears recently dumped and appears to contain glass,” the dispatcher dutifully reported.

Zimmerman now claims Martin attacked him on the street, and he defended himself with deadly force.
