George Zimmerman’s girlfriend accused him of pointing a gun in her face and kicking her out of her house, according to audio from her phone call to a 911 dispatcher, the Associated Press reported.
“I’m doing this again?” 27-year-old Samantha Scheibe can be heard telling Zimmerman. “You just broke my glass table, you just broke my sunglasses, and you point your gun at my fricking face and told me to get the f*ck out. This is not your house. Get out of here.”
Zimmerman, who was arrested and charged with domestic violence and battery on Monday, was scheduled for a Jan. 7, 2014 court date and released on $9,000 bond. A judge ruled on Tuesday that Zimmerman must stay at least 1,500 feet away from Scheibe, wear a GPS tracking device at all times and cannot possess any firearms.
Scheibe can also be heard telling an emergency dispatcher that Zimmerman was pushing her out of her house. The AP reported that Zimmerman locked himself inside the house and made his own phone call to dispatchers, saying, “I just want everyone to know the truth.”
Zimmerman told the dispatcher that it was Scheibe who broke the table and repeatedly said she was pregnant. However, Seminole County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Dennis Lemma debunked at least one of his claims, saying on Tuesday that she was not pregnant.
“She was very concerned for her own safety, especially having the weapon pointed at her and then being pushed out,” Lemma was quoted as saying.

Maddow details how Stephen Miller’s backstory makes his anti-immigrant fantasy even more horrifying
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow interviewed the uncle of White House advisor Stephen Miller on Monday to detail the family's fascinating backstory.
"It begins at the turn of the 20th century, in a dirt-floor shack in the village of Antopol, a shtetl of subsistence farmers in what is now Belarus. Beset by violent anti-Jewish pogroms and forced childhood conscription in the Czar’s army, the patriarch of the shack, Wolf-Leib Glosser, fled a village where his forebears had lived for centuries and took his chances in America," Dr. David Glosser explained in Politico.
‘The people of Montana are no fools’: Liberian refugee taking on Trump-loving Senator Steve Daines
First-term Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) was one of the few members of Congress to praise President Donald Trump's racist "go back" taunts that his supporters turned into a "send her back" chant against a black former refugee.
In response, the Billings Gazette chastised Daines in an editorial, saying, "Montanans are more sickened by the never-ending torrent of childish, bigoted views that are shoveled from the White House that make the country look like bigots and idiots. And we're nauseous when folks like Daines invoke our state in defending a spoiled New York developer who would get tongue-lashed by most Montanans for the way he takes to Twitter."
Democrat who lived under a dictatorship explains why she believes it is time to impeach Trump
One of the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee who will be interviewing special counsel Robert Mueller on Wednesday explained to MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell why she believes it is time to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.
Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D-FL) immigrated to the United States from Ecuador as a child. When Mucarsel-Powell was sworn-in to office following the 2018 midterm elections, she became the first Ecuadorian-American and first South American immigrant member of Congress.
"Most Americans don't have time to read a 448-page report," Mucarsel-Powell said. "We found substantial evidence that shows us that the president obstructed justice. "And I think it is critical for the American public to understand that and that’s why this hearing will be very important on Wednesday."
