Zimmerman Charged With Aggravated Assault, Domestic Battery
George Zimmerman is charged with aggravated assault, domestic battery, and criminal mischief after a fight with his girlfriend.
[Samantha] Scheibe told investigators that she had asked Mr. Zimmerman to leave the residence, and that he had begun packing his belongings, including two firearms, before growing agitated and turning violent.
[Chief Deputy Sheriff Dennis Lemma of Seminole County] said that Mr. Zimmerman had “broken a table and, at one point, pointed a long-barreled shotgun” at Ms. Scheibe, who said he had aimed at her for about a minute. Later in the altercation, the authorities said, Mr. Zimmerman forced Ms. Scheibe, who was uninjured, out of the home before obstructing a doorway with furniture.
“He just pushed me out of my house and locked me out,” Ms. Scheibe told a 911 dispatcher.
