George Zimmerman was back in the news today due to a 911 call made by his wife Shellie Zimmerman as was reported by HLN. Listening to the 911 call released today, Shellie Zimmerman alleged that George had punched her father in the nose, made threats with his hand on a gun, and smashed and then used a pocket knife to cut up her IPad.
Arriving the Zimmerman house, the police approached with guns drawn. Although there was visible damage to his father-in-law’s nose, they did not see probable cause for his arrest once Shellie Zimmerman and her father declined to press charges.
There is said to be video footage from outside of the house as well as from the dash cams on the police cares. They have yet to be reviewed. If there is evidence of probable cause on the tape from the dwelling it is still possible for Zimmerman to be arrested.
Sometime between the 911 call, in which Shellie states that she is afraid and that she did not know what George was capable of, and the time to agree to press charges, their attorney’s had arrived on the scene, and soon both Shelli and her father declined to press charges.
George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the shooting of 17 year old Trayvon Martin just 2 months ago and since has had several speeding tickets as well as a visit to the gun factory that happened to manufacture the same kind of gun Zimmerman used in the shooting.
