Waiting On More Information About George Zimmerman’s Arrest

Trayvon Martin - dptm pic

Yeah Trayvon. We see you smiling.

On Friday, George Zimmerman was arrested on charges of aggravated assault, and domestic violence involving a weapon.  We have since learned that the weapon was a wine bottle.

On February 26 , 2012, George Zimmerman shot and killed 17-year old Trayvon Martin.  Zimmerman called the police non emergency number reporting a suspicious person.  Travyon was returning from a convenience store, walking to Brandi Green’s house, where he and his dad were staying.   Trayvon was unarmed.

Zimmerman abandoned his rental townhouse that same night, and did not return to work thereafter.

It was not until April 2012 that Zimmerman was charged with 2nd degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

The weekend before his arrest, George Zimmerman opened a website and requested financial donations to a legal defense fund.  After his arrest, the money began pouring in.  Via the jail house telephone, he instructed his wife Shellie on transferring the money and paying off their debts.  At a subsequent bond hearing, George Zimmerman sat in court like a “potted palm” while his wife denied knowledge of the money.  George also kept hidden that he had a valid passport in a safety deposit box.

By motion of the State’s Attorney, Zimmerman’s bond was revoked.  He had a subsequent bond hearing where Judge Lester stated that he believed that if it was not for the ankle bracelet, that Zimmerman would have left the country with other people’s money.  Shellie was charged with perjury.

Around December 2012, George, Shellie, and Mark O’Mara were sued by a security firm for breach of contract and failure to pay.

On July 13, 2013, a jury of six women acquitted George Zimmerman.  Following his acquittal, Shellie appeared in court and entered a plea agreement on the perjury charges.  She then announced that she filed for divorce.

Prior to that, George was stopped for a traffic violation in Texas.  Several months thereafter, the police were called to the Lake Mary house owned by Shellie’s parents on the allegation that he hit Shellie’s dad and threatened to shoot him and Shellie.  Surveillance video captured an angry and aggressive George destroying Shellie’s Ipad, which she said was used to record George’s threats.

It didn’t end there.  When it was reported that Zimmerman had been arrested for domestic violence against Samantha Scheibe, news also came out that while his trial was pending, Zimmerman had affairs with Samantha and at least one other woman. 

Zimmerman was stopped again for a traffic violation, and the police caught him one night working as a guard for a store.  The owner said that he did not ask, neither hire Zimmerman.  Thereafter, a man reported that Zimmerman stalked and threatened him.

This is now another encounter with the police, and Zimmerman’s second arrest since his acquittal.

Saturday at his bail hearing, Zimmerman was represented by Don West.  He is free on a $5,000 bond. On May 31, 2012, Don West, whose office is in Orlando, Florida, left his job as a federal public defender to join Zimmerman’s defense team along with Mark O’Mara on the 2nd degree murder charge. After Zimmerman’s acquittal in that case, Mark O’Mara served Zimmerman with a legal bill for $2 million.

The Department of Justice investigated George Zimmerman.  They presented evidence to a federal grand jury.  In December, the session for the federal grand jury closed.  We await the grand jury’s decision.

George Zimmerman changes and goes through attorneys like he changes and goes through girlfriends.  Before his arrest for the killing of Trayvon Martin, Zimmerman was represented by attorneys Craig Sonner and Hal Uhrig.  They withdrew representation after Zimmerman stopped staying in contact with them.  Then came O’Mara and West.

Since his acquittal, for a short-time, Zimmerman was represented by public defenders in the domestic violence case involving Samantha. The public defenders were replaced with Jayne Weintraub.  

For his divorce, Zimmerman is represented by attorneys Howard Iken and Alberto Ayo.   In March 2014, they produced a video with Zimmerman and also requested that people donate money to him.  News on the divorce case has been silent.  Maybe there was not enough money raised to proceed in the case.

Zimmerman sued NBC alleging defamation.  Judge Nelson dismissed that complaint and it has been reported that an appeal was filed.  He was represented by James Beasley out of Pennsylvania.  O’Mara was the local attorney in Florida, where the case was filed.  Since O’Mara parted ways with Zimmerman, he has been replaced as local counsel.

Zimmerman traced photos and did paintings, one that landed him in trouble.  The original photographer threatened Zimmerman with a lawsuit.  Zimmerman also opened his own blog in September 2014 and after two posts that same month, it has been dormant.

So, here we are again, awaiting news on the details of Friday’s arrest.  What we know thus far is that on Monday, January 5, 2015, Zimmerman’s girlfriend was stopped by the police for a traffic violation.  She informed them that Zimmerman threw a wine bottle at her.  The police were unable to catch-up with Zimmerman for questioning until Friday.  He is living in the house owned by his parents, which his parents say they left in fear after Rosanne Barr tweeted out their address. They are suing Barr for the value of the house.  The Zimmerman’s still own the property.

We will report any news in the comment section below.

Here’s the police report.  I’ve also placed it under “Documents” on the right-side border.

I would also like the Ice Cream man taken to task for his disgusting statement about how GZ “hasn’t been very lucky with the ladies,” as if it is their fault his client is an abusive time bomb, waiting to go off – again – one final time when his luck will run out – for good.

        • Mindyme,
          Maybe Zimmerman was busy hiding what he didn’t want the cops to see and that might also be why he was afraid because he didn’t know just how much the girlfriend told them.

          My question — what did he mean about taking the relationship further? Evidently she was still maintaining her own residence. Could it have meant that he wanted her to give it up so she could pay the bills, buy the food and have no where to go as he abused her? Certainly, it could not have meant marriage.

              You hit the proverbial nail on the head! Remember that he went back to his ex-girlfriend during his marriage to Shellie because Shellie didn’t want children? Also, Shellie was a licensed cosmetologist and she gave that up when they moved out of her mom’s house. He got Shellie barefoot, but at least not pregnant.

      mindyme62, Fear is a highly motivational emotion, and quite possibly they were afraid of setting him off in a rage if they had not allowed him to stay in their house. One good thing about his staying in their home, it destroys any argument that they had about danger as claimed in the lawsuit. If it was too dangerous for them then it would have been even more dangerous for Zimmy to be there…

    I spent a little time yesterday evening bouncing around to some of the extremist blogs that were such strong supporters of Zimmy during the trial, and found very little actual support for him on those sites. What little support, or should I say almost support, I did see was not as fervent as it was in the past and mainly consisted of he suffers from PSTD so they are not surprised he has anger problems. I did not see anyone suggesting that he be given money to pay for expenses this time, I think Zimmy blew that with his past actions and use of the money for an extravagant life style. I would suspect that Don West has jumped in the fray because he suspects that an indictment will come out and he wants to represent Zimmy only because he see’s the opportunity to recoup at least a small part of what he is owed presently with what he will receive from the Fed’s as Zimmys attorney.

      So having met 8 or 9 months ago Zimmerman claims the victims son broke her Cell phone a year ago? Really? and she never had it fixed in more than a year? I doubt it, he avoided Law Enforcement for days much the way he barricaded himself in Samanthas house boy is guilt as all heck

    The pattern is clear, The night Trayvon was shot, George and Shellie were apart, Shellie was staying at her fathers house the night of the murder, and had spoke to george on his cell phone moments before George called NEN..
    Rejected he snaps finds a victim in trayvon and takes out his aggression.
    Then you have the post trial incident at Shellies house, in which George and Shellie are yet again at odds, Shellies father mocks george and ask what are you gonna shoot me? George snaps assaults his former father in law breaks shellies Ipod and threatens them with a gun.
    following that event, you have Samantha, again Samantha tells George she is done with him he snaps breaks her table with the but of his KelTech Shotgun and threatens her with a gun then decides to barricade himself in Samanthas house
    Now we have this same thing notice all the same traits here? Girl is done with him breaking up George snaps and resorts to violence once again

    • Sorry…………I couldn’t resist

      He was once out stalking one dark winters day
      When he called call the cops to be a pest
      In a big place with cool mown wet grass
      He shot a young and claimed he had blood on his face
      As he fell asleep and dreamed
      He dreamed he was in a Hollywood movie
      And that he was the star of the movie
      This really blew my mind
      The fact that Fogen, an overfed, short haired leaping gnome
      Should be the star of a Hollywood movie, hmmm
      But there he was
      He was taken to a place
      The Halls of Justice they say
      He stood high by the mountain tops
      Naked to the world
      In front of
      Every kind of man
      There was long one’s, tall ones, short ones, brown ones,
      Black ones, round ones, big ones, crazy ones
      Out of the middle, came a lady
      She whispered in his ear
      Something crazy
      She said,

      Don’t throw the wine, I’m a girl
      Don’t throw the wine, I’m a girl
      Don’t throw the wine, I’m a girl
      Don’t throw the wine, I’m a girl

      He thought to himself, what could that mean
      Am I going crazy, or is this just a dream
      Now wait a minute, hold on
      We all know he’s lying to someone somewhere
      So it’s all in his head
      And then he heard her say one more time

      Don’t throw the wine, I’m a girl
      Don’t throw the wine, I’m a girl
      Don’t throw the wine, I’m a girl
      Don’t throw the wine, I’m a girl

      He could feel hot flames of fire nipping at his back
      Fogen disappeared, but then he did return
      He’s like a bad nightmare and won’t stay away
      He likes to break glass
      And one time with his shotgun butt, he broke some glass
      Then Fogen lied with his lips
      And Fogen wanted to punch her in the lips
      He hid his gun and said

      Throw the wine, dig that girl
      Throw the wine, dig that girl
      Throw the wine, dig that girl
      Throe the wine, dig that girl
      Take that girl, yeah!

      It’s on girl, all you gotta do is throw that wine
      Spill that wine, let me feel, let me feel hot, yeah! yeah!
      Spill the wine, spill the wine, spill the wine, spill the wine,
      Spill the wine, spill the wine, spill the wine,
      Git it now, git it now, git it now, git it now, git it now, git it now

      Take the wine dig that girl
      Spill the wine, dig that girl
      Spill the wine, dig that girl
      Spill the wine, dig that girl

That is one reason some here, along with myself, are thinking that Zimmerman was consulting with West about the federal grand jury’s possible indictment. West is a federal public defender. Zimmerman can’t afford to pay him, but if he goes to trial, the government would pay West to represent him as a public defender.

          It’s true. Since the federal grand jury’s session ended in December, and we’ve not heard anything from the U.S. Attorney/DOJ, my bet is that GZ was indicted. I could be wrong and the DOJ could just be slow announcing that. If I’m right, we won’t hear anything until GZ insists on going to trial, a warrant is issued for his arrest, he is taken into custody and the indictment unsealed. And, that is why GZ has been in contact with Don West. I can’t see Don West crawling out of his hole after 18 months to defend Zimmerman on an aggravated, domestic violence charge. He could have gotten a public defender for that.
