SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. -- WFTV Channel 9 has learned George Zimmerman's girlfriend wants the court to lift the no-contact order against him.

Zimmerman was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence last month after his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, called 911 and said he pointed a gun at her.

In recently obtained court documents Scheibe said that wasn't true, and she was just overwhelmed and tired after their argument.

Zimmerman is free on $9,000 bond on charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief. He has pleaded not guilty.

Scheibe has claimed investigators refused to let her talk to a lawyer. She also said she does not want to press charges against Zimmerman.

A search warrant made public after Zimmerman's arrest shows he had a 12-gauge shotgun, an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle and three handguns when he was arrested on Nov. 18 at his girlfriend's house.

Zimmerman was acquitted of murder in July in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, which happened during a confrontation in the community where Zimmerman was a neighborhood watch volunteer.

Trayvon Martin cellphone uncovered various nefarious actitives and illegal ones as well. Jax Prosecutors hid and covered up the revealed data. This so called good kid was into mixing pot and purple drank , aka purple lean. Was caught with stolen jewelry in high school after police officers searched a backpack for items he was using to deface school property. Given pass the police officer was told not to arrest him simply report the jewelry as lost. Turns out was from a home robbery. His cellphone shows statements that snitch had not bled enough for him. Few days later he is shopping for street guns Trayvon being the good bow that he is. Bragging on Facebook about how he will smack the hell out anyone for anything. Bragging about his gold lower grill from fighting. Yet the authorities in this state seem to have orders from someone to get Zimmerman any way they can. George if he is smart will stay low key. If I was him and getting treated this way might try and get some way to get out the country for a few months. Seems like every time we turn around his vehicle is being posted in the news, his guns and what he looks like now. The people that need to be in jail are Judge Nelson and lead Prosecutor Corey for intentionally withholding Martin's cellphone information showing him shopping for criminal guns and wanting to make snitches bleed among other things. We live in a very corrupt police state in Fla. When Terry Jones went to protest something he had the right to do was arrested for felony transportation of Kerosine. People should stop and think long and hard about these high profile cases that show obvious state run corruption being allowed.
