Girlfriend wants charges dropped against Zimmerman

ORLANDO — George Zimmerman asked a judge Monday to change the terms of his bond so he can have contact with the girlfriend he's accused of assaulting.

Zimmerman filed an affidavit from his girlfriend that says she doesn't want him charged with aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief.

In the signed affidavit, Samantha Scheibe said detectives misinterpreted what she said and that she hasn't been coerced into the request.

Zimmerman was arrested last month after Scheibe accused him in a 911 call of aiming a gun at her, smashing a coffee table and pushing her outside. Zimmerman also called dispatchers, denied aiming a gun at her and blamed her for the broken table.
