(ABC NEWS) -- George Zimmerman's girlfriend who called Florida police to say he was breaking her stuff
and was brandishing a weapon no longer wants to press charges against
him and instead wants to get back together with him.
Zimmerman, 30, who faces a felony aggravated assault charge as well as
lesser charges stemming from the incident, is asking to have conditions
of his bail modified so he can resume contact with Samantha Scheibe.
According to court documents filed by Zimmerman's attorney Jayne
Weintraub, Scheibe, 27, gave a sworn statement in which she wrote, "I do
not want George Zimmerman charged."
Zimmerman, who had been acquitted earlier this year of murder in the
death of teenager Trayvon Martin, had posted a $9,000 bond and was
barred from any contact with Scheibe. He was also ordered to give up his
guns and wear an electronic monitor.
Scheibe's new affidavit taken Dec. 6 stated, "When I was being
questioned by police I felt very intimidated...I believe that the police
misinterpreted me and that I may have misspoken about certain facts in
my statement to police."
Scheibe wrote that Zimmerman "never pointed a gun at or toward my face
in a threatening manner" and that "I want to be with George."
Weintraub claims that Scheibe reached out to her and asked that the
order barring contact between herself and Zimmerman be lifted.
Scheibe originally told a 911 dispatcher that the incident began when
the former neighborhood watch captain grew upset during an argument and
brandished a weapon at her.
"He's in my house, breaking all my s--- because I asked him to leave,"
Scheibe told the dispatcher. "He's got a freaking gun, breaking all my
stuff right now."
Scheibe said at the time Zimmerman pushed her out the home and locked
her out. Authorities said when they arrived Scheibe gave them keys to
the home, and that they had to push through obstacles by the door to get
At the time, Zimmerman told police that Scheibe instigated the incident.
The November incident was Zimmerman's latest run-in with the law since his acquittal in Martin's death.
In September, he was arrested and then released without charges after
his wife called 911 to say Zimmerman punched his father-in-law in the
nose and threatened to shoot him and his wife.
Zimmerman claimed that he was acting in a "defensive manner" during the
incident, according to police, who later added that they never found a
gun on Zimmerman.
He has also been pulled over for speeding, once in July and again in
September. During the July incident, he alerted the officer that he had a
gun in his glove compartment.
On July 18, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office said Zimmerman was one
of two men who came to the aid of a family who became trapped inside
their Ford Explorer after it rolled over on the side of the highway.
By the time police arrived, two people -- including Zimmerman -- helped
the family get out of the overturned car, according to the sheriff's
