George Zimmerman was charged with assault and battery for allegedly pointing a long-barreled shotgun at his new girlfriend Monday afternoon, authorities said.
The former neighborhood watchman who gained noterity for murdering unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin an then being aquitted, pushed Samantha Scheibe, 27, from their Florida home at gunpoint and barricaded the door with furniture, according to the sheriff's office.
Two separate 911 calls, one from Scheibe and one from Zimmerman himself, captured the chaos of the moment.
"You put your gun in my freakin' face!" Scheibe yells at Zimmerman as she tells the dispatcher he pushed her out of her home. "He knows how to do this, he knows how to play this game," she said.
His wife, Shellie Zimmerman, filed for divorce in August. But they were both back in the news after she accused himof threatening her with a firearmin a domestic row in September. No charges were filed because the dispute somehow did not escalate to criminal activity.
Zimmerman has continued to be a public menace long after getting away with murder.
Zimmerman has also been pulled over three times since his acquittal. In July, he was given a warning for speeding near Dallas. In September he got a ticket for doing 60 mph in a 45 mph zone in Lake Mary, Fla., outside Orlando. He also got a warning for having a license plate cover and tinted windows on I-95.
