George Zimmerman Arrested

I am just getting the details together and will post it later, but wanted to open this up for comments.

George Zimmerman is being held without bond, with arraignment tomorrow, so this will continuously be updated.

UPDATE

Zimmerman new mugshot

George Zimmerman’s recent mugshot

Funny thing.  Someone asked yesterday how Zimmerman was living, and I replied that he was probably living with a woman.  That was true – until today.  Tonight, George Zimmerman is behind bars.

At 12:30 p.m. Monday, Deputies received a call from 27-year-old Samantha Scheibe.

George Zimmerman was arrested near the intersection of Topfield Court and Bonnie Drive in Apopka, FL.

Chief Deputy Dennis Lemma with the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said Monday during a news conference in Sanford that Zimmerman is charged with aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief.

“The victim indicated she and George Zimmerman were having a verbal dispute, and at that time, she alleged that he had broken a table, and at one point, pointed a long-barrel shotgun at her,” said Lemma.  “He actually pushed her out of the front of the residence and barricaded the door with furniture.”

Zimmerman arrested at the home of his girlfriend

Deputies say Zimmerman put his girlfriend out of the house and barricaded the front door by wedging furniture against the door before officers arrived.  His girlfriend was outside the home and gave deputies a key to get inside.

(Didn’t Shellie also allege that George locked the front door of the house they shared while she was moving her belongings, causing her to run to the garage where he also tried closing the garage door on her?)

When deputies arrived, they were able to open to door and push away the furniture.   Lemma says once deputies got inside, Zimmerman did not resist and was not armed.  He says investigators hope to search the home for any weapons.

Zimmerman was transported and booked into the John E. Polk Correctional Facility.  He is being held on no-bond status.  The Sheriff’s Office is also requesting electronic monitoring, should Zimmerman be released.  They said this is an extra step that law enforcement requests in domestic battery cases.

George Zimmerman called 911 after the police arrived.  He told dispatch that his girlfriend is pregnant with their child.  To hear the recording of his 911 call, click here.

According to George Zimmerman, Samantha had asked him to leave her house and she was packing his things.  Orlando Sentinel reports that according to the police report, Samantha said when she told Zimmerman that she was calling the police, he pointed the shotgun at her “and asked her if she really wanted to do that.”

Hat tip to Yahtzee.  Click here for the recording of Samantha’s 911 call.

Interesting that Samantha told the dispatcher, “He knows how to do this.  He knows how to play the game.”

Let’s roll back time.  In September when the police were called by Shellie Zimmerman, Samantha Scheibe was present.  Kelly Sims, Shellie’s attorney, identified Samantha as George’s girlfriend, but there were reports that Wes, George’s bodyguard, and Samantha, said they were all simply friends who had known each other since they were children.  Now, George says differently. Today, Samantha told the dispatcher and she and George have been together since August.

According to Shawn Vincent, a spokesman for attorney Mark O’Mara,  “Mark O’Mara is not representing George Zimmerman in today’s matter,” won’t represent him in any other new criminal complaints and “as such, it is not appropriate for him to make any comment.”

    • I am sorry, but while it is good that a violent man is arrested and off the streets to commit no more harm, this arrest of George Zimmerman is not very satisfying for me.

      The sign on the Seminole Court building is STILL flashing out the message that it is OKAY to PROFILE, PURSUE, and KILL our innocent Black youth. And, there are too many hateful racists and gun nuts who are bowing to that neon sign!

      Our society and our justice system is SILENT and letting this CONTINUE to be the message!

      ”Fools”, said I, “You do not know

    • You know, Jueseppi, I have mixed feelings. It’s been like watching the George Zimmerman wreck since the events of February 26, 2012 were reported. He’s been living on 4 flat tires driving on fumes since day one, so we can only expect the worst for him. Have you ever met or watched someone who you just knew will continue doing wrong because the consequences do not change their life? George’s life has not gotten any better or with his wrongdoing because his conditions were always bad.

          I agree — George Zimmerman will eventually go to prison.

          You know, yesterday I was researching about the former cop who killed Oscar Grant because the feds opened a civil rights investigation in 2010 to see if they could charge him. The only thing I found is that the investigation is still ongoing. So, 3 years is not unusual and there is another case that I reported here where the feds took 5 years before charging.

  5. Two sides to a story

    I’m reading various things about the alleged pregnancy – that she told GZ she is but really isn’t. Or that it’s a rumor started by the media. R JR is spinning about everything being exaggerated by the media – no pregnancy, no witnesses, no guns, he says, but the police arrested GZ and the three charges have probable cause, so let’s hope they stick!

  7. From the following link that SG2 provided (police report):

    On Monday, November 18, 2013, at 12:30 p.m., I, D/S Nick DiPrenda, along with D/S Johnny Roldan, responded to 1308 Topfield Court, Apopka, Seminole County, Florida, in reference to a disturbance. While enroute, the Caller, Samantha Scheibe, advised dispatch that George Zimmerman was breaking items inside the residence. Scheibe, then advised that Zimmerman had threatened her with a firearm, then pushed her out of the residence.

    Upon arrival, contact was made with the Caller/Victim, Samantha Scheibe, who was standing outside. Scheibe stated that she and Zimmerman had become involved in a verbal dispute, and that she had asked him to leave. Zimmerman began packing his items, which included a Shotgun and a AR Assault Rifle, which he placed in a single carry case. Scheibe stated that Zimmerman “cocked the shotgun” prior to placing it in the case. Scheibe then began to carry out other items belonging to Zimmerman, placing them in the living room, and also outside the residence. Zimmerman became upset, at which time he removed the Shotgun from the case. Scheibe then advised Zimmerman that she was calling the Police because she was nervous about why he pulled out the Shotgun.

    Zimmerman then pointed the Shotgun at Scheibe for a minute, and asked her if she really wanted to do that. Scheibe stepped back, at which time Zimmerman smashed a glass coffee table, belonging to Scheibe, with the butt of the Shotgun. Zimmerman then told Scheibe to leave the residence. Scheibe began to walk to the front of the residence, at which time, Zimmerman smashed a pair of sunglasses belonging to Scheibe. Scheibe further advised that Zimmerman then pushed her from the side, out the front door, and locked the door.

    Scheibe also advised that Zimmerman refused to exit the residence, that he would speak to Law Enforcement by phone.

    Scheibe provided a key to the front door, at which time, myself, along with D/S Roldan, attempted to gain entry into the residence. The front door, which was blocked by unknown items, was forced open to allow entry. Once inside, contact was made with Zimmerman, at which time he was removed from the residence, and placed in investigative detention.
    Scheibe provided a verbal statement in which she advised that she was not sure whether the shotgun was loaded or not when it was pointed at her, and she was concerned for her safety. Scheibe also advised that she did not give Zimmerman permission to strike her, or break her property, and expressed her desire for prosecution.

    in response to masonblue:

    Can it now be said that, despite all verbiage from Robt jr, O’Mara and the gaggle over at the treehouse, the great threat to George Zimmerman comes not from the NBBP, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the liberal media, Spike Lee or innumerable black youths armed with deadly concrete sidewalks? The one unyielding threat to George Zimmerman is George Zimmerman himself. He has a penchant for over-the-top behavior stemming from a controlling personality and uncontrolled temper. The fact that Southern Institutional Racism allowed him to skate on murder has only deepened his denial of his own problems, which, it would appear, are many.

    Well let me see now………

    It seems from the age of around 8 years old, Fluffernut started showing his true colors.

    * He abused his cousin, blatantly, while under the covers in the presence of other family members. According to her this continued for years.

    * After listening to jail house audio tapes between he and his sister, I wondered what their relationship was also.

    * He was accused of violence by his former girlfriend, and was served with a restraining order.

    * He was accused of violence by his estranged wife, against both her and her father.

    * He is now accused again with violence against this girlfriend.

    * And, talking about anger issues. How about when he got mad at his own mother and turned off her electricity, and left her virtually in the dark ……tell ya anything?

    Well, let’s move on.

    * How about the (2) private security jobs he lost because of being too aggressive? HMMMMMM

    * Or, the woman who claimed he tossed her across the room?

    * How about the police officer he fought with when he wanted to card his buddy at the bar?

    Still moving along……

    * Education? Eight years led to what? It didn’t lead to a Degree! It led to knowledge of the “Stand your Ground Laws,” and enough knowledge for Fluffernut and Daddy to keep him out of jail!

    * One of his Professors said he spoke of, and taught, the Stand your Ground Law to the class. Z was in that class. The Professor said: “By Zimmerman’s submitted papers, he understood what was taught.” Yet on Hannity, Z said he never heard of the law.

    Then we have Murder.

    * All you have to do is look at many factors leading up to the night he murdered Trayvon.

    * Racism posted on his My Space page. Lies about mentoring little black children.

    * All of the calls he made about blacks in his neighborhood.

    * His (2) tattoos……(1) that is gang related, and the other that is the name of his cousin, that he sexually abused, over his heart! (vomit!)

    In closing.

    * This is one sick MF that respects NO ONE, is racist, a murderer, feels entitled to do whatever he pleases, disrespects all women, kicks animals, lies……………….and has enough knowledge from (8) failed years of school (and Daddy) to slip under the radar!

    ****************************************************************************************************************

    Just since July this maniac has been stopped for (2) traffic violations, made a disgusting appearance at a gun factory, is accused of accosting his wife and her father, is now accused of accosting his girlfriend, and………..has acquired a shotgun, assault weapon, and God only knows how many other firearms!

    ****************************************************************************************************************

    RIP Trayvon.

  24. OK, Xena. My equal opportunity beliefs suggest that I post something here that I’ve already posted on the Leatherman blog. It’s hard to imagine why any woman would embark on a personal relationship with GZ. Tonight, I stumbled onto a web site where a guy (Michael George) struggles with the question of what kind of woman would date him. He doesn’t offer any definitive answer, of course. But he does post a very funny picture that speaks a thousand words.

    And on this note, I’ll say Goodnight….

    If I recall from domestic violence reading, if he’s released anytime soon, his next move would
    be to go back and have a confrontation with her, where in his rage he’s likely to kill again. I hope that won’t be the outcome in this case, but it is that way in many other DV cases.

  28. No offense meant, but this is a far, far cry from “justice for Trayvon Martin.” That would have involved a timely arrest for an unnecessary killing of an unarmed minor, followed by an adequate investigation, then charges preferred by a local prosecutor and a fair trial before an impartial jury, whatever the verdict. And it’s unlikely that two million people would have needed to bear witness (and organize peaceful protests and petition drives) to that, present company included.

    Absent that, all we have seen is shame and tragedy compounded by travesty. And I’ll count some small measure of “satisfaction” if and when this loser is truly off the streets and in prison, not before. But even that is unlikely to be “justice.”

    As a black woman, while not surprised that his true character continues to glare disrespectfully to mankind, it hurts to know that he was arrested immediately under these circumstances. The fact that justice moves swiftly if you are blonde with blue eyes and not at all if you are not, hurts to the core. It is a sad commentary on race relations in this country that it took protests and many months to get him arrested for murdering a young black teen, unprovoked, with witnesses, co- conspirators, and the backing of the police, legislature and judicial system that stood by watched, condoned and lied to support a modern day lynching of a young boy accused of being black.

  56. George Zimmerman’s girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, described Zimmerman as alone, depressed and fascinated by guns in the days after after his acquittal on charges in connection with the death of Trayvon Martin.George Zimmerman’s girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, described Zimmerman as alone, depressed and fascinated by guns in the days after after his acquittal on charges in connection with the death of Trayvon Martin.Scheibe and her mother, Hope Mason, spoke with Local 6 on and off through text messages and phone calls over the past three weeks as they talked about participating in an on camera interview aboutScheibe’s relationship with Zimmerman.That interview never materialized, but the conversations provided extensive details about the couple’s relationship and Zimmerman’s life after the verdict.Scheibe first entered the public eye as the mystery blonde seen in news helicopter video consoling George Zimmerman after that infamous iPad incident with his wife, Shellie.By the time of that September incident, Shellie had filed for divorce, and George Zimmerman had started dating Scheibe. Zimmerman eventually moved into her home.But soon, Scheibe said her relationship with Zimmerman decayed as he fought bouts of depression. She said she feared him, but said she stayed with him because she thought she could help him.By the end of October, Scheibe said she demanded that Zimmerman get professional help for depression. She claims that in response, Zimmerman moved all of her furniture, clothes and food out of her Seminole County home.“She’s scared is the bottom line,” Scheibe’s mother, Mason, wrote in a text message.Scheibe and her mother started to seek interviews with national media outlets. Mason said she hoped by Scheibe doing the interview, she would force Zimmerman to get help – and the attention would keep Scheibe safe.“Things have gotten hotter on her end. He has shown up two times already today to her house, so we need to make a move sooner than later so she stays safe,” Mason wrote in a text message.But soon after, Scheibe said she and Zimmerman apologized to one another, and he moved the furniture back in.But Scheibe said the relationship continued to be volatile. She said at times she feared for her life, and other times “everything was fine.”After one argument with Zimmerman, Scheibe said she went to her mother’s house to get away from him.While there, Mason said Scheibe’s daughter received a text message from George Zimmerman. Mason said that message was a still image from an intimate home video of Scheibe and Zimmerman.“He’s now threatened her in writing and even sent a portion of the video to her baby girl,” Mason wrote in a text message.But still Scheibe stayed with Zimmerman and the couple reunited.Just last Thursday, Mason was still seeking a national interview. But this time she was promising both George Zimmerman and Samantha Scheibe.That interview never happened, and just four days later, Scheibe called 911 saying Zimmerman had threatened with a gun.THE RELATIONSHIPSamantha Scheibe’s mother says her daughter did not hunt down George Zimmerman to create a relationship with the man found “not guilty” in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.Scheibe said she first met Zimmerman more than 12 years ago when she was in her late teens — before Zimmerman was married to Shellie. Scheibe says they dated for a short time.Even though their relationship didn’t work out at that time, Scheibe says she was a constant friend to George — and to Shellie — throughout their marriage.When the relationship between George and Shellie started to sour, Scheibe says she stepped in to “be there” for George as a friend, and it was during that time a romance began to kindle.She echoed a sentiment about Zimmerman that many testified about during his trial: George was a nice, warm man and would help you with whatever you needed help with.He was “Georgie,” she saidTRAYVON MARTIN SHOOTINGScheibe says George and Shellie’s relationship had soured by February 2012.On February 26 — the night of the shooting — she says Shellie and George had gotten into a heated argument. Shellie had left to spend the night elsewhere, and that’s why she wasn’t home when the shooting happened.Talk of divorce had already started, she says.THE TRIALDuring his murder trial, George and Shellie shared a home owned by Shellie’s parents in Lake Mary.While they arrived and departed the courthouse together everyday, Schiebe says they were not “a couple,” in the traditional sense. Shellie and George were living very separate lives, not speaking much even though they continued to live together, she says.Even though his parents testified on his behalf during the trial, George didn’t speak much with his parents, she says.AFTER THE VERDICTScheibe says after the jury returned a “not guilty” verdict on all charges stemming from the shooting of Trayvon Martin, George began to change.When the media fervor surrounding him went away, she and her mother say Zimmerman spiraled into what she calls a very deep depression. She said doctors prescribed medication to help him with the bouts of sadness and despair he was feeling, but he got to a point where he stopped taking it.She says George would spend days in bed, refusing to get up and refusing to take his medication. She claims the depression got worse.Scheibe says there was time when she walked into his bedroom, and she saw an empty bottle of sleeping pills on his sidetable. She claims he overdosed. She wasn’t able to revive him and watched his breathing.When he finally did wake up, he started crying and eventually put a gun inside his mouth, telling her he was ready to end it all. She says she talked him out of it.Scheibe says Zimmerman threatened to take his own life on more than one occasion, and she says the threats seem to come about when he was not one of the news headlines.She says she believes Zimmerman enjoyed the attention he was getting in the news, while also knowing he wasn’t able to carve out a “normal existence” if he was always a headline.Also after the verdict, Scheibe said Zimmerman formed an inseparable bond with his dog, Oso. Zimmerman wouldn’t go anywhere Oso couldn’t go at a moment’s notice, which is why he drove virtually everywhere he went, including Texas, where he again made headlines after being pulled over in a traffic stop by police.FIGHT WITH SHELLIEGeorge’s televised fight with his estranged wife Shellie happened on Sept. 9, 2013, at a home they had rented from her mother, Machelle Dean.Scheibe says she and Zimmerman had spent the morning at Kel Tec, a gun manufacturer in Cocoa. On their way back to the Orlando area, Scheibe says Zimmerman accessed the home surveillance cameras at the Lake Mary home belonging to her mother using an app on his phone. She says he saw Shellie was moving her things out, but she says she also say him moving things that belonged to him.That’s when they drove to the house, and the fight escalated, Scheibe said.Scheibe says she watched as Shellie hit George over the head repeatedly with her iPad. That’s when she said George took the iPad away from her, broke it over his knee and threw it to the ground.Scheibe claims George did have a gun on him that day, and it wasn’t in the trunk of his car.Scheibe refused to give police a statement that day, as reflected in the police report obtained by Local 6.No charges were ever filed, and the case was closed.ZIMMERMAN’S VERSION OF EVENTSAt his first appearance Tuesday on charges connected to the alleged domestic violence incident with Scheibe, Zimmerman’s lawyers said the first they had heard about the allegations that Zimmerman had suicidal thoughts was at the hearing.“I do not know if it’s true or not,” Jeff Dowdy of the Seminole County Public Defender’s Office said in response to a reporter’s question about Zimmerman’s alleged suicidal thoughts.In his 911 call during the Monday incident with Scheibe, Zimmerman said, Scheibe had “gone crazy on me.”Zimmerman told the dispatcher that he believed Scheibe was pregnant with their child. Seminole County Sheriff’s officials say Scheibe is not pregnant.Zimmerman said Scheibe was the one who smashed things in the house during the argument. “I guess she thought I was going to argue with her. But she’s pregnant. I’m not going to put her through that kind of stress,” Zimmerman saidInterview Samantha did with local 6

      Read the wash post original story – they quote anonymous sources as saying charges are very unlikely to be filed given that racially motivated crimes would be difficult to prove on this case.

      It’s my strong impression that GZ never told anyone the whole truth about how he stalked the teen from the mail kiosk, following him with his moving car before trayvon ran off the roadway (twin trees lane) on fear and entree the cut through/ do walk area. This activity can and has been proven to have occurred; and had it been shown in court his guilt would have been established that this was not a justifiable homicide but rather the end result of an aggressive illegal stalking on George’s part. But proving it was solely motivated by racial animosity is an ardous and relatively impossible task absent a credible confession or taped admission of guilt.

      I’ll not speculate whether his suicidal impulses are chemical or guilt related, but a normal person in his shoes should feel remorse for murdering an unarmed teen and getting away with it based on obvious lies. My feelings are he’s a narcissist more than an outright sociopath, although he’s clearly a bit of both.

    Alexander says the biases that led to Martin’s death and let his killer go free are deeply embedded in U.S. society and in the criminal justice system itself: “The [Zimmerman mindset] that views black men and boys as a perpetual problem to be dealt with has infected our criminal justice system, infected our schools, has infected our politics in ways that have had disastrous consequences, birthing a prison system unprecedented in world history, and stripping millions of people of basic civil and human rights once they have been branded criminals and felons. It’s this mindset that some of us defined largely by race and class are unworthy of our basic care and concern and to be dealt with harshly, written off with impunity.”

    I put this over at the Professor’s site:

    Something just occurred to me and got me thinking. There has been some speculation that forgen is suffering from PTSD, even Samantha talks about his depression. It has come up on the HLN shows and even Taffee says this.

    Now why wouldn’t a man who suffered from PTSD get the mental health that he needs? The answer is if he does and the diagnosis comes up as PTSD then he would lose the ability to have his concealed license and he could never buy another gun. PTSD falls into being “mentally defective”. I believe he is well aware of this and as such refuses to be seen by a doctor.

    • @towerflower. You’re right on about George Zimmerman’s reason for not wanting a professional diagnosis for PTSD. However, if he is PTSD, it’s only because he could not talk his way out of being arrested and tried for murder. Other defendants go through the same process. Looking at George’s inability to provide for his basic needs, he would have been better off in jail while awaiting trial. Just imagine the money that would have saved in his defense fund.

      So the question is, what benefit was George served by being out on bail? What was he really free to do other than start an extra marital affair? Use the internet? Gain over 100 lbs.?
