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.
However, later on during an interview on CNN, O’Mara (Zimmerman’s attorney) 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. Zimmerman’s acquittal is giving his ego boost a feel of fame that’s enjoying.
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.
