George Zimmerman's girlfriend recants allegations he threatened her with gun

Samantha Scheibe, who refers to Zimmerman as her "boyfriend," said in a sworn statement obtained by NBC News that she felt intimidated when she was questioned by police about the Nov. 18 incident. The affidavit was attached to a motion by Zimmerman's attorney seeking to modify the conditions of her client's bond in his domestic violence case.

"I believe that the police misinterpreted me and that I may have misspoken about certain facts in my statement to the police. I do not feel that the arrest report accurately recounts what happened," she said.

In the affidavit released Monday, Scheibe said: "George never pointed a gun at or toward my face in a threatening manner."
In the 911 tapes released from the Nov. 18 incident, Zimmerman denied brandishing a weapon at his girlfriend.

In the affidavit, Scheibe goes on to say that she contacted Zimmerman's lawyer, Jayne Weintraub, "to ask if there is any way that the stay away order can be lifted so that we can talk and be together." [Motion to modify pre-trial conditions]

"I am not afraid of George in any manner and I want to be with him," Scheibe stated. [link]
