Samantha Scheibe, ex-girlfriend of George Zimmerman, who was acquitted for murdering unarmed teen Trayvon Martin, is now backtracking off her 911 claims that he pointed a gun in her face, ABC News reports. She now says she wants to get back with Zimmerman. Um, is that because her 15 minutes of fame are waning?
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.”…;
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.”
At the very least, if the prosecution proceeds with the case and Samantha Scheibe lies under oath during testimony, she should be charged with perjury.
