Seminole County, FL- Just a little over four months after George Zimmerman was acquitted of the shooting of 17 year-old Trayvon Martin is again in serious trouble. He could have messed up a little by getting a DUI or something less violent, but he obviously likes his guns and sure as hell isn’t afraid at pointing them at people even at his pregnant girlfriend.
Zimmerman has been charged with felony aggravated assault after he pointed a shot gun at his girlfriend. He will appear before Seminole County Judge to plead to the charges which also includes two misdemeanors, domestic violence battery and criminal mischief.
It appears as though Zimmerman was moving out of the Apopka, Florida home he shared with his pregnant girlfriend Samantha Scheibe, who asked him to leave.As Zimmerman was packing up his things, the couple began to argue and things escalated into a fight which, fortunately, did not involve any harm Scheibe or Zimmerman, but did land him in jail.
Just after 12:00 p.m., Sheibe called 911 stating that her boyfriend broke and coffee table with his gun and then pointed the gun at her for close to a minute. In the call, a woman can be heard telling the dispatcher: “He’s inside my house breaking all my (things) because I asked him to leave.”
“I’m doing this again? You just broke my glass table. You just broke my sunglasses and you put your gun in my freaking face and told me to get the (expletive) out,” Scheibe can be heard telling a person in the background.
When police arrived, Sheibe was standing outside of the apartment and gave them the key so they could enter the apartment. But they found he had barricaded the door with several pieces of small furniture.
Shortly after pointing the gun at Sheibe, Zimmerman then pushed her out of the apartment and locked the door before he also called 911. Police were banging on the door as Zimmerman was taking to 911 giving his side of the story. He explained that she had “gone crazy on him” and that she broke the coffee table. He also denied pointing his rifle at her while he was speaking to the 911 dispatcher.
The dispatcher asked Zimmerman why he was calling, he said, “I just want everyone to know the truth,” according to CNN.
This is the second time Zimmerman has been accused of domestic violence. In early Sept., Zimmerman’s estranged wife accused him of violence towards her and her father. Police were called to her home after Zimmerman allegedly punched her father in the face and smashed he iPod on the ground and slashed it up with a knife.
Zimmerman was not charged in that incident. Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorced the same month.
Zimmerman got a pass with the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, but he can’t seem to keep a handle on his temper. If he keeps it up it won’t be too long before he sees himself behind bars after all.
