APOPKA, Fla. (AP) - George Zimmerman told a 911 operator that he never pulled a gun on his girlfriend, and that it was she who smashed a table at the home they shared outside Orlando.
Zimmerman said on the 911 call Monday that the girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, also became upset when he started to leave.
Deputies didn't buy Zimmerman's story and charged him with aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief.
Scheibe told deputies that Zimmerman smashed a glass table with his firearm, pointed the gun at her and shoved her out of their home after she asked him to leave.
The arrest was the latest legal problem for Zimmerman since he was acquitted of criminal charges in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teen. The case, and claims that the killing was racially motivated, stoked a discussion on racial profiling across the country.
