Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman was arrested earlier today near Orlando and charged with domestic violence, aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief after an alleged incident with his girlfriend Samantha Scheibe. Details about the arrest have been revealed slowly throughout the course of the day and now we finally have the actual arrest affidavit!
Here is the affidavit followed by a transcript of the written account of what happened from the report, which includes Zimmerman allegedly cocking a shotgun and aiming it at Samantha before smashing her glass coffee table with the butt of the gun. (She also mentions that Zimmerman had a AR Assault Rifle?!?)
On Monday, November 18, 2013, at 12:30 p.m., I, D/S Nick DiPrenda, along with D/S Johnny Roldan, responded to 1308 Topfield Court, Apopka, Seminole County, Florida, in reference to a disturbance. While enroute, the Caller, Samantha Scheibe, advised dispatch that George Zimmerman was breaking items inside the residence. Scheibe, then advised that Zimmerman had threatened her with a firearm, then pushed her out of the residence.
Upon arrival, contact was made with the Caller/Victim, Samantha Scheibe, who was standing outside. Scheibe stated that she and Zimmerman had become involved in a verbal dispute, and that she had asked him to leave. Zimmerman began packing his items, which included a Shotgun and a AR Assault Rifle, which he placed in a single carry case. Scheibe stated that Zimmerman “cocked the shotgun” prior to placing it in the case. Scheibe then began to carry out other items belonging to Zimmerman, placing them in the living room, and also outside the residence. Zimmerman became upset, at which time he removed the Shotgun from the case. Scheibe then advised Zimmerman that she was calling the Police because she was nervous about why he pulled out the Shotgun. Zimmerman then pointed the Shotgun at Scheibe for a minute, and asked her if she really wanted to do that. Scheibe stepped back, at which time Zimmerman smashed a glass coffee table, belonging to Scheibe, with the butt of the Shotgun. Zimmerman then told Scheibe to leave the residence. Scheibe began to walk to the front of the residence, at which time, Zimmerman smashed a pair of sunglasses belonging to Scheibe. Scheibe further advised that Zimmerman then pushed her from the side, out the front door, and locked the door.
Scheibe also advised that Zimmerman refused to exit the residence, that he would speak to Law Enforcement by phone.
Scheibe provided a key to the front door, at which time, myself, along with D/S Roldan, attempted to gain entry into the residence. The front door, which was blocked by unknown items, was forced open to allow entry. Once inside, contact was made with Zimmerman, at which time he was removed from the residence, and placed in investigative detention.
Scheibe provided a verbal statement in which she advised that she was not sure whether the shotgun was loaded or not when it was pointed at her, and she was concerned for her safety. Scheibe also advised that she did not give Zimmerman permission to strike her, or break her property, and expressed her desire for prosecution.
The shotgun used in the incident was unavailable, and believed to have already been locked up by Zimmerman prior to our contact.
Zimmerman was placed into custody, and transported to the J.E.P. Correctional Facility.
It is recommended that Zimmerman be placed on Domestic Violence Empact.
Not mentioned in the above affidavit is any mention that Samantha Scheib told the 911 dispatcher that she was pregnant, which is being reported by TMZ. The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office has said it will be releasing the 911 call as soon as it is available, so we should know shortly whether that report is true or not.
UPDATE – And here it is! Actually, here they are because as it turns out, there were two calls to 911 — one by Samantha and the other by George Zimmerman. Samantha’s call was first and takes place during their heated argument. After Zimmerman pushed her out of the house and locked the door and police were on the scene, he placed his own call to 911 to tell his side, including revealing the claim that Samantha had just told him she was pregnant with their child and that’s what sparked the whole thing!
Here’s Samantha Scheibe’ 911s call in its entirety followed by an excerpt of George Zimmerman’s 911 call. Be warned, Samantha’s call contains some profanity:
