The DeKalb Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Squad Members arrested the New Black Panther Party’s Chief of Staff, Hashim Nzinga, for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Nzinga, 49, recently announced that the New Black Panther Party is placing a $10,000 reward for the capture of George Zimmerman, the shooter of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
