DELAND, Florida -- A Florida man's name has made him an unlucky target for nasty phone calls.

His name is George Zimmermann.

Unlike the man making headlines around the world, the Methodist preacher spells his last name with two n's, but that hasn't stopped people from calling his home at odd hours with threats. He says he's gotten so many, he's been forced to call the local sheriff's office for help.

Zimmermann says it began the night "the other George" was acquitted in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

Zimmermann says he is taking it in stride and says if venting makes people feel better, he can live with it.
