Once again, you’ll have to depend on karma for George Zimmerman to get his proper comeuppance. The charges of domestic violence against Trayvon Martin’s killer have been dropped because his pregnant girlfriend has recanted her accusations that he aimed a firearm at her.
Zimmerman was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and battery … after GF Samantha Schiebe claimed he pulled a shotgun on her and pushed her out of their house.
But Samantha has had a change of heart … she wants George back, and the State Attorney for Seminole County says Samantha now says she lied about the encounter and refuses to cooperate … hence, there’s no way to successfully prosecute him.
But there’s still something blocking these lovebirds from reuniting — a restraining order, which Samantha’s lawyer is now trying to get lifted.
Bottom line … because she’s fickle, George is out of a pickle.
According to the authorities, Schiebe told them Zimmerman broke a glass-topped table with the butt of a shotgun and pointed a weapon at her.
However, she then claimed they got the story wrong. “I believe that the police misinterpreted me and that I may have misspoken about certain facts in my statement to the police,” she said in the signed affidavit. “I do not feel that the arrest report accurately recounts what happened.”
Ideally, Schiebe would be prosecuted for lying to the police, right? We won’t hold our breath, though.
