SANFORD, Fla. (AP) - Deputies say George Zimmerman's girlfriend accused him of pointing a shotgun at her during an argument at the home they shared in Florida.
Chief Deputy Dennis Lemma said Monday during a press conference in Sanford that Zimmerman was charged with aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief after the dispute.
Lemma says no one was hurt, and no one else was at the home when deputies arrived.
Deputies say Zimmerman had barricaded himself inside by wedging furniture against the door before officers arrived. His girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, was outside the home and gave deputies a key to get inside.
Lemma says once deputies got inside, Zimmerman did not resist and was not armed. He says investigators hope to search the home for any weapons.

So this is another girl friend? Not the liar up on the witness stand? He need to stay away from ALL of women until these RACE BAITER'S quit hounding him. They are out for their 15 minutes of fame, or to try to cause him more trouble...not love.

According to other reports, she told Zimmerman she was pregnant, then told the police she wasn't...she can't stop lying about it anything. She probably used that lie to try to control him and when she couldn't she went berserk again. She's a flake. He should have run a far away as he could from this fat lying pig.

The problem is when the state prosecuted him they made it almost impossible to live and they definitely made it impossible to live in the state of FL! I'd probably be arrested too! Can't find a job! Can u imagine trying to find a job with the name George Zimmerman? Just hope the girlfriend is not looking for 15 min of fame. He's in an impossible situation and I'm sure he's constantly angry because of what the state did to him when they trid him

Unless they find a gun, just as they didn't last time, she is a fat ass liar. My guess is her daddy doesn't George anyway and probably telling her to lie some more. George needs to stay away from her and keep his stupid ass out of the media's dogging eye. or he will end up in prison, kids or no kids, George needs to disappear, send the child support through the mail.

Poor George. He's just another misunderstood American Hero. After all, it was only a nagging WOMAN he threatened with a shotgun this time. Where's the crime in that? The real crime is that African president wantin' to take ma guns and give em to the welfair moms who suck all the tax money I would pay if I had a job!

Sounds like she lied again...George is stuck between a LYING fat ass ex wife and getting to see his kids. If they don't find a gun again, she needs to be locked up, and George needs to get those kids out of her abusive house and get as far away from her as possible.

What about the pastor Terry Jones arrested for felony transportation of kerosene ? Just because someone is arrested make sure you know the whole story before you judge. Unfortunately politics does decide criminal charges lately.
