Bids for George Zimmerman painting near $100,000 on eBay

The Florida man made infamous after the death of a 17-year-old boy in Florida has started painting.

George Zimmerman, who was acquitted of killing Trayvon Martin in one of the most watched cases in recent history, is selling a painting on eBay. And as of early Tuesday morning, the bids have reached almost $100,000.

In the description for the painting, Zimmerman says that everyone has been asking him what he has been doing. He goes on to say that he has found a creative way to express himself and art provides him with a therapeutic outlet.

Zimmerman's brother Robert Zimmerman, Jr., confirmed to Florida's Bay News 9 that the painting is authentic.

Zimmerman allegedly has about $2 milliion in legal debt. And given his propensity for getting into trouble, that cost could rise.

Since being found not guilty of killing Martin, he has been pulled over for speeding more than once and was most recently arrested for a domestic violence incident. However, the charges were dropped.
