We wrote yesterday about George Zimmerman’s estranged wife, Shellie Zimmerman, calling the police and reporting that Zimmerman had hit her father, broke her IPad, and made a threat involving a firearm. The police left without making any arrests because they accused one another of being the aggressor.
The police has now released video of footage taken from a dashboard camera of officers handcuffing George Zimmerman after ordering him to the ground. It also shows pictures of the IPad and Shellie Zimmerman’s father who had obvious injuries to his face. You can see in the video where he takes the IPad from someone and throws it. Even though Shellie Zimmerman says he threatened her with a gun, police report they did not find one on his person. I am not sure why they could not arrest him for the assault on his father in law.
On The Young Turks they discuss the case including the fact that after the police release statements that they found no gun, Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara (who has now decided to no longer be Zimmerman’s attorney) made a statement to Anderson Cooper later that night that George Zimmerman did in fact have a firearm on him that day.
