George Zimmerman was not arrested after Lake Mary, Fla. officers responded to an allegation of domestic violence by his estranged wife Shellie Zimmerman on Monday, according to news sources on Tuesday. Fox News reported on Sept. 10 that police said they did not find a gun on Zimmerman, as his wife alleged.
Law enforcement also stated that neither Shellie Zimmerman, nor her father, chose to press charges and Shellie even changed her story after making the controversial 911 call to police.
Facts in the case reveal that the estranged wife of George Zimmerman had returned to the home they shared during his murder trial, as she said she still had some items in the home she wanted to remove. The argument between the two resulted at that time, as it was an unexpected and unplanned visit according to Mark O'Mara, George's attorney.
Shellie recently faced a court hearing regarding perjury charges leveled at her during George's murder trial. She lied to the judge about the couple's financial standing at that time and she was charged as a result. George did not attend the hearing with her, which began an adversarial relationship between the two, leading in their legal separation.
George's wife told national television audiences that she felt she didn't know who he was anymore and that it upset her he was not by her side in court when she had to appear.
In the divorce filings by Shellie, she is asking that George pay for a permanent life insurance policy on himself, making her the sole beneficiary.
As a criminal justice major and crime investigator, the Atlanta Top News Examiner Radell Smith finds the life insurance policy request by George's wife a very troubling sign in their divorce proceedings.
