In a stunning reversal, George Zimmerman’s girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, is requesting that recent charges against him be dropped and now claims she felt intimidated by police during questioning that led to charges being filed against Zimmerman.
She also states she wants to be with him and has asked for a retraining order to also be dropped.
Zimmerman, who had been acquitted earlier this year of murder in the death of teenager Trayvon Martin, had posted a $9,000 bond and was barred from any contact with Scheibe. He was also ordered to give up his guns and wear an electronic monitor.
Scheibe’s new affidavit taken Dec. 6 stated, “When I was being questioned by police I felt very intimidated…I believe that the police misinterpreted me and that I may have misspoken about certain facts in my statement to police.”
Scheibe wrote that Zimmerman “never pointed a gun at or toward my face in a threatening manner” and that “I want to be with George.”
