Since former neighborhood watch fanatic George Zimmerman was acquitted of murdering Trayvon Martin in July, he has carried a gun for his own protection.
But, according to Lake Mary (Florida) police, Zimmerman did not have a gun during a domestic dispute with his wife, Shellie, at his father-in-law’s house yesterday.
“I’m really, really afraid,” Shellie told a 911 dispatcher, after alleging that Zimmerman threatened her and her father with a gun.
“[H]e’s in his car,” Shellie said during the 5-minute 911 call. “And he continually has his hands on his gun and he keeps saying, ‘Step closer.”
But after Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara arrived on the scene, Shellie’s story changed. She signed paperwork confirming that she never saw a gun.
Later, during an interview on CNN, O’Mara admitted Zimmerman did have a gun on him, but “He never took the weapon out.”
The conflicting stories proves just how far the police community in Florida will go to protect their famous citizen.
Shellie declined to press charges — despite telling police George punched her father in the face and cut her iPad with a pocket knife.
O’Mara called the dispute “Silly stuff” over divvying up “pots and pans and dishes,” in the wake of a divorce filing by Shellie.
Zimmerman’s friend, Frank Taafe called Shellie “a convicted perjurer” who was upset because Zimmerman arrived at the home with a blond woman.
On HLN’s Dr “Drew On Call” Monday night, Taafe said, “George and Shellie were separated” on the night Trayvon was shot and killed by Zimmerman. He said Shellie had already moved out of their marital house and was “staying with a friend” 2 weeks before the shooting.
This information was never made public for obvious reasons.
Instead of keeping a low profile, Zimmerman has been pulled over for speeding twice, and he toured the gun factory where the weapon he used to shoot Trayvon was made.
