USA Today reports:

Police allowed Zimmerman to go free Monday afternoon after questioning him outside the home where Shellie Zimmerman placed the 911 call. Police Chief Steve Bracknell said Shellie Zimmerman and her father decided not to press charges after consulting with an attorney.

Police deputy chief Colin Morgan said earlier that police held George Zimmerman in “investigative detention” while they investigated the dispute.

A police spokesman said Zimmerman and his wife, who filed for divorce last week, were blaming each other for starting the fight at her father’s home.

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.

Well, there is that perjury thing.

The dispute “was between him and his wife and her father,” Morgan said. “There were some allegations that there had been an assault, but we could not confirm any of it.”

One gets the feeling that anytime George Zimmerman sneezes, media will be there to report on it and liberals will spring forward behind comment section pseudonyms to denounce him.

According to the audio I heard on tv yesterday from the phone call itself, the estranged wife seemed to be extremely pi$$ed off that there was another woman with Zimmerman.

Could that state of mind have had anything to do with the accusation?

Then there is the point I heard elsewhere that the wife's cell phone had been damaged.

Did Zimmerman break it in a fit of rage - or did the woman throw it herself?

This guy will never be out of the public spotlight - even getting pulled over and let go with only a warning resulted in national coverage!

Everyone should have questioned the legitimacy of this story when it was reported that Zimmerman's wife was filing for divorce. But nope, this is George Zimmerman and he refused to be put in jail for defending himself from an attacker and now that he is the object of Leftist hatred he will forever never be left alone.

I remember reading somewhere that this is a common abuse in Florida. A successful accusation of domestic abuse leads to taking away the man's gun, which becomes a bargaining chip for, say, $10,000 during the divorce or seperation procedings.

I'm not sure of all the details, but that's what I thought about when I first read the headline.

And it's not just Florida. Then women wonder why so many men are relucant to get married with the legal system stacked so heavily against us.

For those of us who went through similar things, celibacy looks like a good option. No piece of *ss is peace of mind after all.
