Karma hasn’t caught up with George Zimmerman yet.

This time around, the acquitted killer is accused of yelling at a female employee while at a bar, using racial slurs, before becoming “belligerent” toward a deputy before he was removed from the establishment, the Seminole County, Fla., Sheriff’s Office said, Click Orlando reports.

According to the report, a deputy was originally called to Corona Cigar Company in Sanford, Fla., on Wednesday night for a possible battery incident involving a woman who was in Zimmerman’s group. However, while the deputy was reviewing surveillance with the manager in the back, another altercation broke out at the front of the establishment.

There, authorities say, the deputy found Zimmerman yelling at a waitress while his friends tried to calm him down. The employee told the deputy that she was merely trying to collect the group’s bill but that Zimmerman snatched the credit card from her hand and started yelling.

The manager told the deputy that this was one of several incidents involving Zimmerman at the bar and that he wanted Zimmerman to be trespassed, the offense report notes.

According to Click Orlando, before Zimmerman left the bar, he said to the manager, “I didn’t know you were a [racial expletive] lover,” deputies said. There were other reports of Zimmerman’s friends also using racial slurs toward other customers throughout the night.

The deputy informed Zimmerman that he had been trespassed, and then offered to investigate his earlier battery claim, officials say. The deputy tried to get Zimmerman to fill out a sworn voluntary statement form, but he became “belligerent” and refused to accept it.

When a friend stepped in and got Zimmerman to fill out the form, Zimmerman wrote, “I want to press charges. The narrative on the front is true and correct. Officer Nickell is an incompetent officer under qualified to flip burgers,” according to the report.

Zimmerman then told the officer he would remember him and that he wanted to sue the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.
