Prosecutors say they will not file domestic violence charges against George Zimmerman after his girlfriend said in a sworn statement she did not want to pursue the case.

State Attorney Phil Archer in Seminole County said in a statement Wednesday that Samantha Scheibe’s decision not to cooperate and the lack of other corroborating evidence made a successful prosecution unlikely.

Zimmerman had faced charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief following a Nov. 18 incident at the central Florida house he shared with Scheibe. She initially told police Zimmerman pointed a shotgun at her face, then recanted in an affidavit filed this week.

Statement made from Phil Archer, State Attorney Phil Archer in Seminole County:

The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office had probable cause to arrest Zimmerman after Scheibe called 911 and reported Zimmerman was armed and behaving threateningly.

“However, upon reviewing the recent affidavit … and taking into account the conflicting statements about what occurred, the failure to cooperate with the ongoing investigation, and a lack of any other corroborating evidence or witnesses, there is no reasonable likelihood of successful prosecution,” said Archer, the top prosecutor for Seminole and Brevard counties.

      Battered woman’s syndrome?
      He’s a conservative hero, a true patriot. Ha.
      SM: Exactly how is George Zimmerman a conservative hero? He is hardly a hero or patriot, that is just the foolish gibberish of the uninformed LEFT. He is a Hispanic (oops, a white Hispanic) man who shot and killed a black teen while defending himself. Zimmerman is a man who was targeted by the PC liberal media who succumbed to the pressure of the black race baiters in the US.

      I have always said four things when it came to this case and tragic situation:
      1. This was not a criminal case, it was 100% racial.
      2. It is what happens when 2 hot heads who should never come in contact with one another, come in contact with one another.
      3. Had roles been reversed and Trayvon Martin killed Zimmerman, Martin would have been found not guilty.
      4. The prosecutors over-charged this case because of pressure and should have charged Zimmerman with a much lesser count of manslaughter from the outset.
