George Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, quit one day after Zimmerman was briefly taken into custody following a domestic incident with his estranged wife.
O’Mara represented Zimmerman who was acquitted of killing Trayvon Martin in July.
ABC News reports that O’Mara announced his decision to no longer represent Zimmerman one day after he joined CNN as a legal analyst. He hinted that his departure may have resulted from an apparent dispute involving unpaid attorney fees.
Investigators are still trying to piece together exactly what happened between Zimmerman and his wife Shellie when she attempted to remove her personal belongings from her father-in-law’s home in Lake Mary, Florida on Monday.
Shellie called 911 to report that Zimmerman was threatening her and her father with a gun. During the 5-minute 911 call, Shellie said Zimmerman had his hand on his gun and that he punched her father in the nose.
But both Shellie and her father, Colin Morgan, declined to press charges.
During an appearance on CNN Monday night, O’Mara said Zimmerman had a gun on his person, but that he “acted appropriately” and he didn’t draw his weapon.
But O’Mara seemed to reach the end of his rope with his arrogant client. When asked if he had any advice for Zimmerman, O’Mara answered, “Pay me.”
