Lake Mary Police are now calling into question several statements Shellie Zimmerman made to 911

Lake Mary Police are now calling into question several statements Shellie Zimmerman made to 911 Video Photo PreviousNext Police: Zimmerman did not have gun George Zimmerman Detained in Lake Mary Police: Zimmerman did not have gun advertisement alt alt alt alt ShareThis Posted: 10:05 PM Last Updated: 8 minutes ago By: Jacqueline Ingles LAKE MARY, Fla - Lake Mary Police are now questioning the validity of several statements Shellie Zimmerman made when she told 911 dispatchers her estranged husband, George Zimmerman, threatened her and her father at gunpoint Monday afternoon. > LISTEN: Shellie Zimmerman's 911 Call for help >Mobile users listen here: http://wfts.tv/13CkJwA Portions of the 911 call made by Shellie Zimmerman in this story: http://wfts.tv/17MKcVu "We did not find a gun, did not locate a weapon," said Zach Hudson, public information officer with the Lake Mary Police Department. "Nobody ever saw a gun. A gun is not part of this story." Still, a gun was at the crux of the account Shellie Zimmerman provided to 911 dispatchers when calling for help. "He continually has his hand on his gun and he keeps saying, 'Step closer.' He is just threatening all of us," Shellie can be heard telling dispatchers. Hudson told ABC Action News Shellie provided a written statement Monday night saying she never saw a gun and only assumed her estranged husband was carrying a weapon because he touched his stomach. Shellie called police to her father's home on Sprucewood Road around 2 p.m. She claimed George punched her father in the face and threatened both of them with a gun. "He accosted my father and then took my IPad and then smashed it and cut it with a pocketknife. I don't know what he is capable of. I am really really scared," Shellie told dispatchers. According to authorities, Shellie's father did not have any visible injuries. In the 911 call, Shellie asked the dispatcher to send paramedics because her father's nose looked like it was broken. There are also other inconsistencies police pointed to on the 911. Shellie told dispatchers that officers arrived and had their guns drawn. She said George was sitting in his car. Fearing George would start shooting, she told the dispatcher her and her father were going inside. According to police, George was not in his car when they arrived but was standing in the yard. They say he was also very cooperative and allowed police to search his person. After being questioned by police, Shellie left the home with her attorney. Police explained that George has been living in his father-in-law's home. It was just last week that Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce. Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, said Monday's incident stemmed from the couple dividing up property. "Silly stuff like pots and pans and dishes gets so emotionalized that it overflows and that is what really happened here," said O'Mara. The home was previously used as a meeting place to divvy up possessions. However, O'Mara said Shellie turned up at the home Monday afternoon unannounced. "This is all miscommunication," O'Mara said. O'Mara explained that this is just more fallout from Zimmerman's acquittal in the murder of Trayvon Martin, 17. That occurred nearly two months ago, and since that time, Zimmerman has been in the media spotlight for various reasons including speeding and helping people during a traffic crash. In this case, both Zimmerman and his father-in-law have declined to file charges. However, multiple media outlets are incorrectly reporting that Zimmerman and his wife has also declined to press charges. According to police, because this is a domestic violence case, it is up to the state attorney's office to decide whether charges are warranted. They must first find out who was the primary aggressor, if there was one at all. And while no charges have been filed, police say that could change at any minute.

Here is where I'm left wondering.  Zimmerman's attorney yesterday stated Zimmerman was armed at the time of the incident.  There was supposedly someone with Zimmerman at the time, it's quite possible Zimmerman handed over the gun to avoid detection.   The fact that they didn't find the gun he owned anywhere (in the house he was staying or on his person) leads me to think he ditched it when he realized the cops were on their way/coming.  

They also stated they needed to obtain a warrant to search his truck, the article in this original post makes no mention if that was done.

O'Mara also said that George Zimmerman didn't threaten Shellie Zimmerman or her father with a gun, even though Shellie Zimmerman told 911 dispatchers he did. O'Mara said George did have his gun, but that it was holstered under his shirt and stayed there the whole time...

..."Nobody saw a gun," said Officer Zach Hudson. "We did not find a gun on his body. We did not find a gun in the house. As of right now, there is no gun."

I just spent ten days down in Orlando, I drove through Sanford, and I watched the local news stations every morning and evening.

I'm a Jersey girl and I have to say, Florida is a different animal.

I did definitely get a new understanding of the problems with the "hero" saving traffic stop from driving through where it happened in Sanford.

I also have a different feeling about how police investigate issues in Florida.

I will continue to believe we don't have the whole story on this, and that GZ is going to continue to be news, for one reason or another, until he completely self-destructs in another tragedy.

This is not a man who is going away.  This is a man on a mission.

SHe looks like she hates him in that photo. LOL. Birds of a feather. What a pair.

And the second article, FROM FOX NEWs, describes how George was released yesterday after being taken in  (after Shellie called 9-11 and said he was threatening her and her father,), presumably since she wasn't going to press charges against him. They are chalking it up to the kind of thing divorcing couples do. Yah,sure.RME.

I didn't reply to the other posts about Zimmerman because I figured there would be more to the story. There usually is when it involves a very public divorce.

Yep. And I'm confused as to why his lawyer's statement says he did have a weapon?!? Maybe it wasn't on him...like in his truck? Didn't the 911 tape have an officer telling him not to handle his firearm or something? I didn't listen to it. Both peeps involved are low class, lying, idiots so no surprise the situation turned out different than first reported.

Quoting romalove:

This doesn't "exhonerate" George.  

This morning's news said that his lawyer said this was due to the stress of their divorce.  It is entirely possible that she thought he had a gun (she now says she thought he did but she did not visibly see it).  It is also entirely possible that he was behaving in a threatening manner, even if it didn't rise to the level that the police felt comfortable arresting him or intervening.

The one thing I know for certain about George Zimmerman is that this isn't the last we will hear of him.  Unfortunately, at some point it will involve another tragedy.

I'm starting to think they are all corrupted down there.  Another article I read states that the police took his gun from him for a period of time and returned it.  His attorney says he was armed at the time and did put his hand on it.   Someone is lying but it doesn't sound like it's Shellie Zimmerman.

 This makes sense .

ANd I see your souce says that George was taken in yesterday for a while. (I was told last night by grandmab that he wasn't taken in and that I was wrong and that I was not very smart ,etc. All of her typical insults and fuzzy thinking. ) So, as I said yesterday, he was taken in and that could be an opportunity for him to get help from the police and his attorney,too.

Yay, for truth !

She called 911, and knew she was on a recorded line.

And yes.....it's wild and wacky in Florida.

There is a SYG case that was going on where someone took a gun and went to someone else's house and shot them based on SYG.  I'm going to Google for that now, I forgot about it till this very second.

I read it, that's the one where the guy is also using the Bush Doctrine as his defense.   No shortage of nutbirds in the sunshine state.

ok...even if he didn't have a gun in this altercation...

why are GZ supporters so happy?? this (along with the other times he's been arrested since the trial) obviously shows he's dangerous, angry and violent

it's only a matter of time before he kills someone else...it's quite obvious

 Gasp!  The police thought it fishy that he could smash and IPad, cut it with a knife..all while wielding a gun!? 

I wonder how many times he was hung yesterday on SAK's post?

I am continued to be amused by those that rush to judgement.
