George Zimmerman’s wife called 911 on Monday afternoon to report that her husband was threatening her family, but she later declined to press charges, police confirmed.

Lake Mary police Officer Zach Hudson said Shellie Zimmerman had called 911 about 3 p.m., saying George Zimmerman was threatening she and her father with a weapon in a house on Sprucewood Drive.

In a 911 call released by police, Shellie Zimmerman tells a dispatcher that her husband had “his hand on his gun and he keeps saying step closer.”

However, Lake Mary police Chief Steve Bracknell confirmed about 4:30 p.m. that Shellie Zimmerman and her father, David Dean, had signed paperwork declining to press charges.

“They both have declined to press charges against George,” Bracknell said. “We have no victim no crime.”

    Typical. This Zimmeran trash is becoming the poster child for adolescent white men: domestic violence, racism, murder and gun fetishes.

    If a gun is involved…how does she have the right…NOT to press charges? She said he threatened to shoot them if they stepped closer.
