George Zimmerman Painting Listed on eBay; Bids Nearly Up to $100,000

George Zimmerman's post-trial life just keeps getting more and more interesting. First, he was acquitted in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin during a scuffle in February 2012. Then he had a string of run-ins with police. And now, apparently, he's an artist.

The 30-year-old Floridian reportedly created a patriotic-themed painting that he's hawking on eBay and the listing, as of Tuesday afternoon, had a high bid of nearly $100,000.

"Everyone has been asking what I have been doing with myself," the eBay listing from user therealgeorgez reads. "I found a creative way to express myself, my emotions, and the symbols that represent my experiences. My art work allows me to reflect, providing a therapeutic outlet and allows me to remain indoors :-)"

Whether he's trying to auction off the painting as part of his newfound artistic expression remains to be seen. It's more likely he's hoping for a big payout. In a legal filing for his most recent arrest in November, Zimmerman claimed to be homeless and at least $2 million in debt, with less than $150 in cash to his name, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Zimmerman was cleared of murder charges back in July when a jury ruled that he shot Trayvon Martin, an unarmed, black teenager, in self-defense. Since then, Zimmerman has had multiple encounters with police.

The latest volatile incident happened last month, when Zimmerman and his girlfriend got into an argument that escalated. The woman claimed that Zimmerman pointed a shotgun at her before barricading himself in her home.

He was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, battery, and criminal mischief, but the charges were dropped last week after his girlfriend backed down from her initial domestic violence allegation.

Zimmerman was also pulled over in July for speeding on a Texas highway and given a warning. He was also issued a speeding ticket in September for going 60 in a 45 mph zone in Lake Mary, Fla.

Later in September, he was accused of pointing a gun at estranged wife Shellie and punching her father in the face during an argument. Shellie Zimmerman ultimately declined to press charges.

Then, in late September, he was pulled over on Florida's Interstate 95 and given a warning for his darkly tinted windows and tag cover.
