SANFORD, Fla. (AP) - Prosecutors in Florida want a man charged with shooting at George Zimmerman to wear a monitoring device while he is out on bond.

Prosecutors filed a motion on Thursday asking a judge to require Matthew Apperson to wear a GPS device.

A police report says Apperson had a fixation on the former neighborhood watch leader and that Apperson had recently been admitted to a mental institution before his run-in with Zimmerman earlier this month.

A hearing on the matter is set for Friday.

Zimmerman and Apperson had a previous road-rage encounter last September, when Apperson alleged that Zimmerman had threatened him. No charges were filed.

Zimmerman was acquitted of any crime two years ago for fatality shooting unarmed teen Trayvon Martin.
