LAKE MARY, Fla.-- George Zimmerman, the man who was acquitted in the 2012 shooting death of unarmed Florida teen Trayvon Martin, had another brush with the law, reports CBS Miami.

Police say a driver reported Tuesday that George Zimmerman threatened to kill him after a confrontation on the road.

The man called police after a truck pulled up next to him and the driver, allegedly Zimmerman, yelled, "Why are you pointing a finger at me?"

The man, who said he recognized Zimmerman, claims Zimmerman asked, "Do you know who I am?"

Two days later, the man says he saw Zimmerman in his truck outside the man's workplace. He called police but declined to press charges. His name hasn't been released.

Zimmerman was acquitted in 2013 of a second-degree murder charge for shooting Martin. The case drew nationwide scrutiny after Zimmerman admitted shooting the unarmed 17-year-old, but claimed self-defense under Florida's controversial "stand your ground" law.

Lake Mary police had two previous encounters with Zimmerman last year. In September 2013, his estranged wife, Shellie Zimmerman, told police he had threatened her and her father. She later declined to press charges.

In a November 2013 incident, Zimmerman was arrested and accused of domestic violence by a girlfriend, who later dropped charges.
