This summer, George Zimmerman was acquitted in the murder of Travyon Martin, a 17-year-old unarmed Black teenager. Last month, Zimmerman was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, battery domestic violence, and criminal mischief after he allegedly pointed a shotgun at his girlfriend. Yesterday, Zimmerman submitted a signed affadavit from Samantha Scheibe stating she does not want him charged and requesting contact with each other.
Scheibe called 911 outside her Florida home after an argument with Zimmeran during which she asked him to leave. He allegedly pointed a shotgun at her “for a minute,” smashed a table, and then shoved her out her front door and barricaded it with furniture. She can be heard on the call yelling at him while some of this is allegedly happening. (He made a 911 call of his own while she was talking to police, claiming Scheibe was “going crazy on me.”) Scheibe also told police that Zimmerman had choked her during an argument recently, but she had not reported it. Zimmerman was released on bail under the condition that he not possess any weapons. Keep reading »
On November 18, a 23-year-old woman in St. Louis, Missouri, was punched in the face. She told police she was ambushed late at night while she and her boyfriend were picking up a drunk friend from a bar and punched as part of what’s been called the “knockout game.”
The “knockout game,” in case your grandmother has not been emailing you repeatedly about it, is an alleged game teens are playing in which they attack random folks on the street and knock them out. The woman appeared on KMOV local news, describing the alleged attack and discussing how she had a double fracture of the bone under her eye and needed reconstructive surgery.
Now the woman has admitted it was all a lie. Ashley DePew, 23, was actually punched in the face by her boyfriend, Justin Simms, 25. Keep reading »
“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.” Keep reading »
