    Girlfriend claims Zimmerman pointed gun at her

    A statement says George Zimmerman was arrested Monday afternoon after deputies responded to a disturbance call at a house in Apopka, Florida.


    APOPKA, Fla. — George Zimmerman was charged Monday with assault after deputies were called to the home where he lived with his girlfriend, who claimed he pointed a shotgun at her during an argument, authorities said.

    Zimmerman pushed the woman out of the house and barricaded the door with furniture, Chief Deputy Dennis Lemma said at a news conference hours after the arrest. The girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, provided deputies with a key to the home and they were able to push the door that had been barricaded.


    Lemma says Zimmmerman was compliant when deputies came to the house.

    "The easiest way to describe it is rather passive. He's had the opportunity to encounter this before," he said.

    Zimmerman was charged with aggravated assault with a weapon, battery and criminal mischief............

    Zimmerman has had other brushes with the law since his acquittal.

    Zimmerman and his estranged wife were involved in a domestic dispute in September just days after ShellieZimmerman filed divorce papers, but police later said no charges were filed against either of them because of a lack of evidence.

    Zimmerman has also been pulled over three times for traffic stops since his acquittal. He was ticketed for doing 60 mph in a 45 mph zone in Lake Mary in September and was given a warning by a state trooper along Interstate 95 for having a tag cover and windows that were too darkly tinted. He was also stopped near Dallas in July and was given a warning for speeding.

    In 2005, Zimmerman had to take anger management courses after he was accused of attacking an undercover officer who was trying to arrest Zimmerman's friend.

    Later that year, Zimmerman's former fiancee filed for a restraining order against him, alleging domestic violence. Zimmerman responded by requesting a restraining order against her. Both requests were granted. No criminal charges were filed.

    It's that woman's own fault. She shouldn't have dressed that way.

    As I said on many occasions during the debates on the TM case, Zimmerman pretty consistently displayed bad judgement. Anyone predicting a conviction in this case? Sounds like he said, she said?

    The left should kiss the feet of Zimmerman for actually having something to talk about these dark, dark, Obamacare days.

    The left needs to be careful, if they keep it up they might get a bunch of splinters under their fingernails.

    In any case, I think where there is smoke there could be fire. I also think that it wouldn't be out of character for the left to have paid this woman off to fake all this stuff. Who knows?

    I know, if they're not careful, their ratings will sink to the right's approval rating after their embarrassing government shutdown failed.

    Perhaps she showed bad judgement shacking up with a man just breaking up with his wife, and after an obviously traumatic year.

    If only she showed better judgement then he wouldn't have had to do that.

    Surely George Zimmerman would be excused if she wore a short skirt!

    I make no apology for Zimmerman, if he did what is accused. The woman is apparently not very particular with whom she sleeps, and would not have had this experience with a bit better judgement and morals.

    No silly, the question is did he do what is accused? Is there evidence to support the charge?
