George Zimmerman got his guns back after police dropped domestic violence charges against him.
TMZ posted video of Zimmerman, who gained notoriety after shooting and killing an unarmed teen in his Florida neighborhood, picking up weapons with the girlfriend who told police that he’d pointed a gun at her face and forced her from her home.
TMZ reported that Zimmerman picked up his own guns Wednesday that had been seized during his domestic violence arrest, and the website reported that he went Thursday with Scheibe to pick up her guns, which were also seized in the investigation.
Zimmerman and Scheibe declined to answer questions asked by the photographer about their relationship, his well-being and a painting he’s selling on eBay.
Bidding has passed $100,000 for the painting of a stylized American flag with the words, “God, One Nation, with Liberty and Justice for All,” painted in white letters on the darker stripes.
Zimmerman posted a photo of the freelance videographer’s license plate on his Twitter account, which he started this week and uses the same name – therealgeorgez – as his eBay auction.
“Owner of this vehicle is pseudo media,” he tweeted Thursday afternoon. “Harassing me at the Sheriffs office today. Get a clue, I still wont talk 2 u. “
He then said the photographer and an accomplice chased him from the courthouse in their vehicle, but he lost them on an access road.
Idiots werent trying to leave they were chasing us Knowing the courthouse I lost them on an access road then followed them. Get a real job.
