Divorce can be a disgusting and ugly thing, and it only gets worse when the person you thought you wanted to spend your life with starts filing false police reports and making up crimes. That’s the reason that one of my co-workers at the day job can’t pass a NICS check anymore: his (soon to be ex) wife claimed that he hit her, when in reality he was hundreds of miles away. It’s starting to look like the latest news about George Zimmerman might be a similar story, with Shellie Zimmerman and George Zimmerman going through a divorce and Shellie wanting to get a little revenge on her infamous husband. From USA Today . . .
The estranged wife of George Zimmerman opted not to press charges against her husband Monday after police in Florida responded to her sobbing 911 call reporting he had punched her father and was threatening them with a gun.
Deputy Police Chief Colin Morgan said officers did not recover a gun, and Bracknell said Shellie Zimmerman later dropped her claim that a gun was involved.
“Domestic violence can’t be invoked because she has changed her story and says she didn’t see a firearm,” Bracknell said.
We will probably never know exactly what happened in this case. But I can definitely believe the idea that Shellie Zimmerman saw an opportunity to punish George for what he put her through over the last couple years and went for it.
Hell hath no fury…
