Arrest Made for Threatening George Zimmerman is a Hoax

We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident

The Epoch Times reports that a story that George Zimmerman got into an altercation with ex-NBA star Gilbert Arenas, and that Arenas was arrested, is fake.

The fake article was published on Empire Sports, which describes itself as “satire.”

Empire Sports has a disclaimer that says it publishes satirical articles, and uses invented names in all its stories, except in cases when public figures are being satirized. 

“Former NBA star Gilbert Arenas was arrested Monday afternoon after a brief altercation with George Zimmerman as he attended a signing at a gun show in Orlando, Florida,” it reads.

Most people know that the gun show was on the weekend, and not on a Monday.  That should have clued them in to know that the report was at least not factual.
