“Sources” connected to George Zimmerman, the Florida neighborhood watch volunteer who was acquitted this summer of murdering unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, say his girlfriend is lying about the circumstances of his domestic abuse arrest on Monday.
Samantha Scheibe called 911 on Monday after Zimmerman allegedly smashed furniture in her house and pointed a shotgun at her. On the 911 call, you can hear Scheibe as she is being hustled outside her house in Apopka, Florida, by Zimmerman, who apparently locked the door behind her so she couldn’t get back in. He was charged with aggravated assault, domestic violence battery and criminal mischief.
However, through TMZ, Zimmerman’s sources are claiming that Scheibe is making all this up because Zimmerman tried to break up with her. The sources claim she concocted a possibly-fake pregnancy to keep him around and when that didn’t work, she made up the domestic violence. You know, as “revenge.”
For her part, Samantha Scheibe told the Orlando Sentinel that she “absolutely” did not set Zimmerman up. She also alleged that Zimmerman took a still image from a sex tape that they made together and texted it to her daughter.
Look, I don’t doubt that Scheibe, as the girlfriend of George freakin’ Zimmerman, is not a particularly wonderful person either. But excuse me if I find it hard believe that a man who already pulled a gun on his ex-wife and her father, and, oh, MURDERED SOMEONE, is the victim in an elaborate fake pregnancy revenge plot here.
