NATIONAL — No charges were filed against George Zimmerman after the Trayvon Martin killer was reportedly became involved in a domestic violence incident with his estranged wife and her father while armed with a gun in a suburb of Orlando near Sanford, Florida.
According to Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell, officers answered a 911 call from Shellie Zimmerman on Monday afternoon during which she said George Zimmerman had threatened her and her father with a weapon. Officers detained George Zimmerman but never arrested him, police said.
“He’s in his car and he continually has his hand on his gun, and he’s saying, ‘Step closer.’ He’s just threatening all of us with his firearm,” said Shellie Zimmerman, who added, “he’s gonna shoot us.”
Shellie Zimmerman also told the 911 operator that George Zimmerman punched her father in the nose, then smashed her iPad before getting in his truck.
Shellie Zimmerman, who filed for divorce last week, and her father, David Bryant Dean, informed her notorious estranged husband that she would be going to the house, which is owned by her father, to pick up some of her belongings.
The incident comes two months after George Zimmerman was found not guilty of murder in the shooting death of the unarmed, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February 2012 in Sanford, Florida.
Despite being currently unemployed, George Zimmerman could potentially profit from the slaying by writing a book, winning money from a defamation lawsuit against NBC News, or from a legal defense fund that has received hundreds opf thousands of dollars.
Shellie Zimmerman pleaded guilty to perjury on August 28 for lying about the state of the couple’s finances. She claimed she and her husband were broke during a bond hearing in April 2012, when in fact they had collected about $135,000 in donations.
