George Zimmerman Had Five Guns When Arrested: Police

zimmermanGeorge Zimmerman possessed five guns — including an AR-15-type rifle — when he was arrested last week and accused of pointing one of the weapons at his girlfriend, according to documents released by police.

The other firearms included a Keltec shotgun and three handguns, and Zimmerman also had 127 rounds of ammunition for the weapons, the papers say. Search warrants and an affidavit made public Monday cataloged the weapons Zimmerman had in the house. An investigator said that when police arrived, in response to 911 calls, “it appeared as if George Zimmerman had locked the firearms up.”

Scheibe told police that she and Zimmerman were “involved in a verbal altercation that turned physical,” the police report says. She said that when she told him she was calling police, he pointed a shotgun at her, asked her if “she really wanted to do that,” then broke a table with the weapon.

Zimmerman’s version was that Scheibe “began to argue and throw his belongings around the house,” the documents say. He said she “picked up a couple of his firearms [a handgun and shotgun], throwing them onto the living room floor.” In his 911 call, he denied displaying a gun and said she broke the table.
