On Monday (November 18th), former neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman was arrested for a second time and this time he was detained for felony assault after threatening his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe with a shotgun at her Apoka home (about 15 miles northwest of Orlando).
Now, I’m not going to get into how he was able to get a girlfriend in the first place, so we’ll just let that go for now.
While he was in police custody for the two days, Zimmerman’s estranged wife, Shellie Zimmerman was able to serve divorce papers, and even though he wasn’t found not guilty in the murder of Trayvon Martin, we can still rest knowing his life is far from fine.
According to close friends, Zimmerman has been talking about taking his life and is an unbelievably $2.5 million dollars in debt.
All of this comes a week after actor Jamie Foxx threw a charity event for Trayvon’s family.
According to TampaBay:
“You point your gun at my fricking face,” Samantha Scheibe is heard telling Zimmerman on a 911 call. “Get out of my house. Do not push me out of my house. Please get out of my house.”
Seconds later, she told the dispatcher, “You kidding me? He pushed me out of my house and locked me out. … He knows how to do this. He knows how to play this game.”
Moments later, Zimmerman called 911 from inside the barricaded house to tell his side of the story.
“I have a girlfriend, who for lack of a better word, has gone crazy on me,” Zimmerman said.
Zimmerman then said he never pulled a gun on his girlfriend, and that it was Scheibe who smashed a table at the home they shared.
He also told the dispatcher that Scheibe was pregnant with their child and that she had decided she would raise the child on her own. When Zimmerman started to leave, “she got mad,” he said.
Seminole County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Chief Dennis Lemma said at a news conference that Scheibe isn’t pregnant.
Deputies used a key provided by Scheibe to unlock the door and they were able to push through the barricade of items, Lemma said.
Lemma said Zimmerman was compliant and unarmed when deputies came to the house.
“The easiest way to describe it is rather passive. Clearly, he’s had the opportunity to encounter situations similar to this in the past,” he said.
Zimmerman was charged with domestic aggravated assault with a weapon, domestic battery and criminal mischief.
Zimmerman however posted his set $9,000 bail bond and was released on Tuesday. A judge has ordered him to stay away from his girlfriend and he’s FINALLY told to stay away from guns.
As previously reported, back in September, Zimmerman was arrested by police for threatening his ex-wife’s father in law with a gun.
