Updated On: Jun 26 2013 10:46:39 AM EDT
Judge Debra Nelson announced Wednesday that an alternate juror in the George Zimmerman trial was dismissed.
B-72 was known in the courtroom as being passionate about fitness and arm-wrestling.
Nelson said he was dismissed "for reasons totally unrelated to this case."
B-72 is a single white man who has lived in Seminole County for nine years. He said he avoids the news because he does not want to be "brainwashed."
While he was in high school he ran track and played football. He is a Phi Theta Kappa member. He works in maintenance at a school and during his free time he competes in arm-wrestling tournaments and works out at the gym.
He said he remembers doing a one armed pull-up around the day that Trayvon died.
