George Zimmerman’s girlfriend Samantha Scheibe was videotaped by police talking to officers about an alleged domestic violence case. It was leaked last week and uploaded to YouTube.
Scheibe describes the incident in the video and talks about other violent incidents.
“He’s choked me once. About a week or a week and a half [ago],” Scheibe told the cops. “I had trouble breathing. He finally let go, but it bruised my throat.”
Scheibe didn’t reported, because as she put it, Zimmerman “always gets off, to be honest.”
“About a week, a week and a half ago… I had trouble breathing at the end. Like, it started where I could talk and… to be honest with you, I was kinda making fun of him, like ‘Seriously, you’re gonna try to do this right now?’ And that’s why he got more aggressive and my voice started changing the sound of my voice where I couldn’t talk at all. And then he let go. But it bruised my throat,” she continued.
Zimmerman also has had a number of “episodes” of anger and he’s shown a penchant for rifles and pistols, as well as an AR-15 assault rifle.
In November, Scheibe said that Zimmerman got angry when she moved his stuff outside during a dispute.
“He went to the rifle bag, unlocked it, immediately pulled out the first gun,” she said. He then smashed her table with the shotgun.
Scheibe said he got mad because “he was jealous” of her ex-boyfriend.
“The bag was right there, let’s just say this is the couch, he grabbed it, unlocked it, opened it,” she added. She first thought Zimmerman was going to kill himself. “I was trying to figure out, honestly, whether or not he intended to hurt me or himself,” she added.
Zimmerman, 30, was acquitted of murder in the shooting of Florida teen Trayvon Martin last July.
