Zimmerman was charged with misdemeanor stalking through a summons delivered to him on Thursday, said Todd Brown, spokesman for the Brevard and Seminole County judicial circuit.
The private investigator told Seminole County deputies that he had contacted Zimmerman in September on behalf of the series’ executive producer, Michael Gasparro, and gave Zimmerman his information.
Zimmerman soon called Gasparro and talked about the documentary series, which will be about 17-year-old Trayvon Martin’s life and his 2012 death, for which Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder.
The private investigator told deputies he did not hear from Zimmerman again until December. Gasparro called him and said Zimmerman was “extremely agitated” and sending Gasparro threatening messages, deputies wrote in the request for a warrant.
