“I don’t know what he’s capable of,” Shellie Zimmerman said of husband George Zimmerman in a 911 call on Monday. “I’m really scared.” George Zimmerman found himself in headlines again after police responded to a call at his Lake Mary, Florida home after a report of assault and making threats with a firearm. Shellie filed for divorce last week.

Reports say that Shellie called 911 to report Zimmerman for punching her father and for threatening them with a gun and a knife during an argument. “I don’t know if he’s going to start shooting at us or something. He’s in his car and he continually has his hand on his gun and he keeps saying ‘step closer’ and he’s just threatening all of us,” Shellie said during the 911 call.

After police responded to the Zimmerman home, Zimmerman was placed in “investigative detention” while they tried to sort things out. When Lake Murray police questioned Shellie, she changed her story from what she initially reported during the 911 call. She told police that she never saw a gun, and that things just got out of hand.

Neither Shellie nor her father wanted to pursue charges against Zimmerman. Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell commented on the altercation and explained that Zimmerman wasn’t arrested because “domestic violence can’t be invoked because she has changed her story and says she didn’t see a firearm.” Police are still investigating the incident.

Zimmerman’s lawyer Mark O’Mara said the argument started after the two ran into each other while moving out of the house, but that the situation was typical of a couple that is undergoing a stressful divorce. “I know the 911 tape suggests that Shellie was saying something but I think that was heightened emotions,” O’Mara said. “There may have been some pushing and touching. That happens a lot in divorce situations…Nobody was injured.”

    I feel George Zimmermam’s wife is a “Lier”.She does not know the truth. George did not have a gun. She is trying to make him the bad guy. She want George back. She needs to take her “fat Ass” and get a job. She needs to stop saying statements,referring to the “Bible”.If you are a Christain ,you do not lie and make incorrect statement. George go to angerment management classes. Get on a tread mile Loose that weight you have gained. Until further notice ,you need to keep someone that can witness your ever move. This is a very serious situation. Wake up. There are a lot of us that are in your corner. Bottom Line .Your wife wants out. Let her go . Move on. Develop a new life. “A More Healthier”,life

    This man should be in jail. Everyone knows he has a gun and is not afraid to use it.
