The State Attorney's Office of Brevard and Seminole counties have announced that George Zimmerman will not be facing his domestic violence charges.
And now that he's free to go, Zimmerman is also free to get back the arsenal of weapons seized from his home that could arm a small South American country.
Zimmerman was busted last month for an alleged domestic disturbance with his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe. But a few weeks later, Scheibe asked the state to drop the charges and even signed an affidavit for it.
Scheibe wrote in the affidavit that the detectives had interpreted the whole incident wrong, even though 911 audio clearly shows that Zimmerman not only allegedly shoved Scheibe but that he also allegedly pointed a gun in her face.
"I am not afraid of George in any manner and I want to be with him," Scheibe wrote in the affidavit.
Following the incident, Zimmerman was arrested, and authorities went into his home a seized an arsenal of weapons.
TMZ.com got its hands on the list of the items and weapons taken by cops, and it's pretty much the exact amount of weaponry you'd find in one of those Expendables movies. All of them. Also, a pack of gum. And a sanitizing wipe.
3 Black Handgun Holsters 1 Pack of Gum 1 Religious Pendant 1 Flashlight 1 Pocket Knife 1 Sanitizing Wipe 2 cell phones 2 .223 rounds 8 9mm rounds 2 .40 caliber magazines with 8 rounds each 2 9mm magazines ( 1 with 14 rounds and 1 with 15 rounds ) 1 Interarms .380 Handgun 2 Taurus 9mm Handgun 1 Glock 19 handgun 1 Kel-Tec 12 Gauge shotgun 13 12 Gauge Shotgun rounds 1 AR15 rifle 1 Soft Sided gun case 2 AR15 magazines 59 AR15 Rounds 1 Combination Lock
Of course, this being Florida, where dudes are free to shoot and kill unarmed teens and get away with it, Zimmerman is now totally free to collect his stuff and go home.
So to recap, Zimmerman has now gotten away with threatening his wife with a gun, smashing an iPad that had supposedly captured video of said dispute with his wife, speeding in the Everglades, and being pulled over in Texas with a gun. He also went shopping for a tactical gun in Florida, though we all know that's no crime. So, meh.
Oh, and then there's that whole shooting Trayvon Martin thing.
But we have a feeling we haven't seen the last of Zimmerman.
So, stay tuned for the next exciting chapter of What Will George Zimmerman Get Away With This Time?
Should be a hoot.
