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.

CNN’s Jim Acosta walks through all the times Trump has ‘thrown gasoline’ on racial tension
On CNN Friday, following President Donald Trump's abrupt exit from a press conference following a racially charged tweet, chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta broke down President Donald Trump's history of stoking racial tensions during moments of crisis.
"He is trying to clean up this tweet that he posted last night," said Acosta. "First, just what the president said a few moments ago. He said the looters in Minneapolis should not be able to drown out the voice of so many peaceful protesters. That, obviously, is a very mild version of what he was trying to say or he claims he was trying to say last night when he tweeted, "when the looting starts, the shooting starts." That obviously is an expression steeped in all kinds of ugliness. The Miami Police chief back in 1967, when there was unrest in that city, used that expression. George Wallace, the segregationist, used words like that in 1968."
Joe Biden takes on Trump’s rhetoric during racial justice crises: ‘The words of a president matter’
Former Vice President Joe Biden talked about the importance of a president's words and accountability during times of crisis during a Friday appearance on MSNBC.
Biden was interviewed by Craig Melvin, who noted the protests tearing apart cities and asked where he would start if elected president.
"I start by talking about what we must be, making no excuses, talking about our obligation to be decent," Biden answered. "Our obligation to take responsibility, our obligation to stand up when we see injustice."
"Look, the words of a president matter -- no matter how good or bad that president is," he explained. "A president can, by their words alone no matter who they are, make it rise or fall, take us to war, bring us to peace. The words of a president matter."
