No Charges Filed in George Zimmerman’s Alleged Gun Threat Against His wife Shellie Zimmerman


George Zimmerman is back in the news.

Police answered a 911 call from Shellie Zimmerman on Monday afternoon in Lake Mary, FL during which she said her estranged husband George Zimmerman had threatened her and her father with a weapon. Officers detained George Zimmerman but never arrested him, police said. Detectives later came to the home to interview him. Initially it was alleged that George Zimmerman had used a gun to threaten his wife; however, it was later determined by police that he had not.  The police are now saying that there was no gun involved and are questioning the wife’s statements. Just recently, Shellie Zimmerman took a plea deal and admitted to a lesser charge of perjury rather than face a felony.

George and Shellie Zimmerman are currently going through a divorce which might explained the heightened tensions between the two.

911 Call

According to accounts, no charges have been filed against George Zimmerman for allegedly threatening his wife Shelley.

According to Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell, Shellie Zimmerman called 911 claiming George Zimmerman had a gun and was making threats.

“He’s in his car and he continually has his hand on his gun and he keeps saying ‘step closer’ and he’s just threatening all of us,” Shellie Zimmerman said in the 911 call, adding that George Zimmerman was “trying to shut the garage door” on her.

“He punched my dad in the nose, my dad has a mark on the nose. I saw his glasses were on the floor,” Shellie Zimmerman said in the call. “He then accosted my father then took my iPad out of my hands. He then smashed it and cut it with a pocketknife, and there is a Lake Mary city worker across the street that I believe saw all of it.”

The 911 call was placed after a shoving match between Shellie’s father and her now estranged husband, George. The couple crossed paths while moving things out of their home.

Statement from George Zimmerman attorney Mark O’Mara:

His defense attorney Mark O’Mara said “emotions are running very, very high” between George and Shellie Zimmerman, and “nobody should be facing charges” in Monday’s incident.

“They need to just sort of stay away from each other, keep things cool and work through their attorneys,” he said.

Although Shellie Zimmerman’s parents own the house, O’Mara told reporters that only George Zimmerman lives there. Shellie moved out, and they had an agreement that she would take her belongings Saturday. But she and her father returned unexpectedly Monday, O’Mara said.

“I think everybody got out of hand. There was touching, pushing,” O’Mara said. It was a case of emotions boiling over, he said.

      Shellie had arrangements with George to remove her things on Saturday. She should not of shown up with her Dad on Monday without discussing it first with George. And then to call 911, lie and make a false report.

      She lied in court about the money. Maybe she also lied to George when he was in jail about the money, which she had access to.

      Twice given a ticket for speeding, maybe he didn’t realize it was the police following him, felt endangered so he started to speed to get away. It wouldn’t surprise me. I think George is so traumatized by all of it. He’s got to be beside himself.
