Florida prosecutors say they will not file domestic violence charges against George Zimmerman after he was arrested in an incident with his girlfriend last month.
Zimmerman, who was acquitted earlier this year in the highly-publicized murder trial of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, had faced charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief following the Nov. 18 incident at the central Florida house he shared with Samantha Scheibe.
Schiebe told authorities Zimmerman had threatened her with a gun, but in a sworn affidavit last week recanted her claims, and asked for the charges to be dropped.

Wonder if she works as a waitress too.../s
I’m starting to think he might be innocent and is being repeatedly set up. Or he’s the luckiest man on Earth and should run and buy a lottery ticket.
Will the police return his guns? He’s likely to need them, what with the entire liberal establishment encouraging the hoodies to kill him, any chance they get.
this won’t get nearly the press coverage that the arrest did
You are being watched 24/7 for any little slip-up. Remember this when you consider doing something stupid.
Or maybe he just has a taste for temperamental chicks.
He needs to move to some remote location and not tell anyone who he is.
Does this decision have anything to do with the fact that she stated publicly - yesterday - that the whole thing was made-up BS?
I’m starting to wish they would lock him up for his own good....and so that I won’t have to read about him anymore!
“Will the police return his guns? Hes likely to need them, what with the entire liberal establishment encouraging the hoodies to kill him, any chance they get.”
My understanding is that they still have his PF-9.
In most jurisdictions, if police take possession of your gun, for any reason at all, you have to initiate a legal action to have it returned. Very frequently it’s cheaper to buy a new one.
This boy just dodged a bullet. If I were George I’d give some serious thought to his personal associations, geographic location, anonymity, and full compliance with the law.
Florida prosecutors will not charge George Zimmerman after a domestic dispute with his girlfriend last month, State Attorney Phil Archer said Wednesday.
The decision not to pursue the case comes days after Zimmerman’s girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, said in a court document that she didn’t want him to be charged.
“Upon reviewing the recent affidavit of the Ms. Scheibe and taking into account the conflicting statements about what occurred, the failure to cooperate with the ongoing investigation, and a lack of any other corroborating evidence or witnesses, there is no reasonable likelihood of successful prosecution,” Archer said in a prepared statement.
Zimmerman was arrested on Nov. 18 at Scheibe’s Apopka, Fla., home after the two had a heated fight. According to a police report about the incident, Scheibe said that after an argument, Zimmerman broke a table with a shotgun and then pointed it at her “for a minute.”
Police said he was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault and misdemeanor counts of domestic violence battery and criminal mischief — accusations that Zimmerman denied.
“I believe that the police misinterpreted me and that I may have misspoken about certain facts in my statement to the police,” Scheibe said in a signed affidavit this week. “I do not feel that the arrest report accurately recounts what happened.”
Ding Ding Ding!
We should have a "Disguise George Zimmerman" thread, with photoshopped make-overs.
Zimmerman needs to leave the country. He isn't safe here. Every gangsta wannabe in the country is out to get him.
I wonder if any of his mother's relatives in Peru would put him up for a few months?
Translation: Gold Digging strategy Plan A. FAIL, go to plan B.
I think its more likely the girlfriend got emotional and wanted to get a little revenge, knowing how the media will side with her. When she realize she could be charged for false filing, she backed down
George needs to leave FL and change identities.
Does he get his guns back?
Kill him? Heck, they need him to be their typical lunatic gun owner poster child.
Jorge K Gonzalez @jorgekgonzalez 13m Weintraub: Zimmerman will get his guns back. #fox35
Jorge K Gonzalez @jorgekgonzalez 13m Weintraub: "Justice prevailed. Hopefully target will come off Zimmerman's back now." #fox35.
Jorge K Gonzalez @jorgekgonzalez 15m Jayne Weintraub: Zimmerman is very pleased. #fox35
Unlike Trayvon, he dodged the bullit. He’d best be going into hiding without a crazy woman by his side.
He won’t, because he likes the attention too much
Heh! You oughta add to the bottom of that, “ATTN: Media Interviews granted to the highest bidders.”
Georgie, find a girl to date on "Christian Matchmaking.com" or sumpin'.
Why do they have to give the guy’s history from the past three years every time they write a new story about him? We KNOW what happened.
I still say not guilty.
She may be a gold digging publicity whore, but she's not guilty.
Zimmerman can't seem to get his head on straight....(& who can blame him)
I wish his brother or parents would do an intervention and spirit him far away to renew himself.
:: Im starting to think he might be innocent and is being repeatedly set up. ::
Sounds like the local Law and DA want to corral GZ in any way possible. Egg on their face with the acquittal and all that. They need to be careful because GZ is a high-profile personage.
Harrassment of civil rights might be easily proven here.
I do too. His brother seems to have a very level head. Lets hope he can make a difference.
If she wasn’t actually guilty, she’d be not guilty.
Of what you stated, that is.
No way. Liberals don’t do dirty tricks. They’re the good guys. If they do something, it’s for a good reason, and that’s all that matters.
2) Any woman with whom you become involved must undergo a complete background check and psych evaluation.
3)If there's even an ounce of truth to any of the accusations that have been made against you since your verdict get help.Take every anger management course you can find.
4)Work diligently to get that huge cash judgment from NBC News (and others) to which you're fully entitled.
George needs to move to Wyoming and work on a ranch.
Plus he needs a stunt double or two!
Alaska is fairly remote.
Woohoo, good news!!
Smelled like a set up from the very beginning to me.
Thank you for the ping!
She deserves whatever happens to her.
If her statements were coerced, or grossly misunderstood, as she says, then the investigators should be charged with false arrest.
The charges were always “alleged”, not a shred of proof was ever produced.
And yes, George is being persecuted by the local police for his “nonconformity”. George Zimmerman does not fit into any convenient slot, so he is automatically presumed guilty, therefore any protestations of innocence or facts to the contrary are rigorously and firmly ignored.
Has anybody noticed that the local police forces are becoming more and more like a domestic army, much more quick to shoot first and ask questions only long after the fact? There is a growing militarization of the police corps at all levels, up to and including local “terror squads” that imprison people in their homes, and denying any participation by citizens in bringing a fleeing criminal to a stop. This includes such anti-libertarian attitudes as disarming legal owners, arresting the VICTIM who fights back against the perpetrator, and seemingly taking the side of the criminal in assaults.
Number one example was the rundown of the woman who was shot by the Capitol police in DC only recently. There are plenty more instances, but it seems that the police have declared a state of martial law almost unilaterally, if not everywhere, enough so that distrust of the uniform becomes a much greater issue than ever.
