George Zimmerman Escapes Domestic Charge after Girlfriend Recants

*Call him the new Teflon Don.

George Zimmerman has, again, sidestepped legal action: A domestic assault case recently filed against him was dropped and the woman involved has recanted her statements.

Zimmerman was arrested earlier this month on multiple charges of aggravated assault, domestic violence, battery and criminal mischief. According to the Associated Press, however, the ex-girlfriend who claimed that Zimmerman threw a wine bottle at her head after she told him that she wanted to end their relationship, recanted the story and stopped cooperating with investigators.

Cops in the case began investigating after overhearing an altercation in Zimmerman’s home.

“While it is clear that the officers had probable cause to arrest Mr. Zimmerman … the subsequent recantation by the victim of her initial statement … precludes my office from proceeding further,” State Attorney Phil Archer said in a statement announcing that no charges would be filed against Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch leader who was acquitted of killing Trayvon Martin. The killing of the unarmed black teen touched off protests across the country.

The ex-girlfriend had made it clear she didn’t want to cooperate with Lake Mary Police officers, and there were no other eyewitnesses, Archer said.

Zimmerman was arrested three weeks ago. Three days later, in a sworn statement, 28-year-old Brittany Brunelle asked that no charges be filed against Zimmerman. She said she was under no pressure and had been offered no money to make the statement. It was released Friday by the State Attorney’s Office. Previously, officials hadn’t identified her.

“The statements issued by the Lake Mary Police Department are not accurate,” Brunelle said in the handwritten note that accompanied her sworn statement. “I do not want to be contacted by the Lake Mary Police Department or the State Attorney’s Office.”

  1. He’s probably protected by the Klan, but I don’t like the your word against someone else’s thing. His day will come and when it does, they’ll be evidence.

  2. I pray he lives long enough to suffer because he’s definitely got it coming – sounds like somebody threatened that stupid woman out of pressing charges …

  3. Threatened, manipulated, or paid off big time. I don’t care what she says…

    In most states during domestic disputes, recanting doesn’t mean a darn thing. If there’s evidence of violence, charges are filed. But we are talking about Floriduhhhh, aren’t we? One of the most backward states in the U.S.

    I see this guy feeling his Cheerios more, and more, and when he blows again, it’s going to be huge… Unfortunately, the person he unloads on will suffer the consequences, because the “judicial system” failed not only Trayvon Martin and his family, but America at large…

  4. I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL THE NEWS REPORT SOMEONE SENT THIS S.O.B STRAIGHT TO HELL! THAT’S THE NEWS I’M WAITING FOR. THESE WOMEN WHO CHOOSE TO BE WITH HIM THAT’S ON THEM THEY KNEW OF HIS HISTORY OF VIOLENCE FROM TRAYVON MARTIN’S MURDER. SO THEY CHOSE TO BE WITH THIS MONSTER, DOMESTIC ABUSER, MURDERER. CHILD RAPIST, DERANGED MACHINE THAT’S ON THEM! BUT HIS DAY IS COMING HE’S GOING PROVOKE THE RIGHT PERSON AND THAT WILL BE THE END OF HIS MALICIOUS, BARBARIC AND RUTHLESS MONSTER A$$!
