Last week was a rough one for George Zimmerman

"George Zimmerman is kind of like the Loch Ness Monster — anytime you get a glimpse of him, it's making international news," said officer Zach Hudson, a spokesman for the Lake Mary Police Department, which issued Zimmerman a speeding ticket, Tuesday morning.

Then there was a rumble at his home when his soon to be ex-wife attempted to remove the rest of her possessions. This gets George arrested, even though the entire process had been previously negotiated so that George wouldn't be there.

According to the Huffington Post:
By the wife’s account, she and her husband had agreed by text message that she could pick up some belongings from the home and that he would stay away until she was done.

Instead, Sims said, George Zimmerman showed up with a “400-pound bodyguard” and a “blonde friend” and began recording his client’s movements. She then began using an iPad to tape him, he said.By the wife’s account, she and her husband had agreed by text message that she could pick up some belongings from the home and that he would stay away until she was done.

But Shellie is not the only one speaking up. Legal and law enforcement authorities continue to weigh in on the young man who is best known for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin on February 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida.

The medical examiner from his murder trial now alleges that the prosecution basically Threw The Case.

Further, Steve Bracknell, the chief of police in Lake Mary, voiced his concerns about the recent speeding violations in Texas and Florida. In both instances, Zimmerman had a gun. ”Does anyone else except me see a pattern? The word firearm keeps popping up,” he said.

According to MSNBC, in the wake of the trial, Zimmerman’s defense attorney Mark O’Mara said his client would need to carry a firearm in order to protect himself. In the 911 call recorded Monday, Shellie Zimmerman told the dispatcher that her estranged husband Zimmerman was “threatening” her and her father with his gun. “I don’t know what he’s capable of. I’m really, really scared,” she said.

However, Zimmerman did not have a gun on him when they arrived on the scene, but Bracknell said in the email exchange that the gun was in Zimmerman’s car but that police lacked the authority to search for it.

On Wednesday, Shellie Zimmerman’s lawyer clarified that she never saw a gun, but had reason to believe he was armed based on his behavior.

“Anybody in the world that knows their husband’s always armed, has his shirt worn differently, has a brand new holster, where this would be where he is placing his hand, and he’s inviting some trouble, would know he’s probably armed,” lawyer Kelly Sims said at a press conference. “You don’t want to take a chance. But add into that equation your husband happens to be named George Zimmerman. And what do you do?”
