  • MIAMI - Prosecutors say they will not file domestic violence charges against George Zimmerman.

    Zimmerman was arrested last month after a domestic incident with his girlfriend, 27-year-old Samantha Scheibe.

    State Attorney Phil Archer in Seminole County said in a statement Wednesday that Scheibe's decision not to cooperate and the lack of other corroborating evidence made a successful prosecution unlikely.

    According to the Seminole County Sheriff's Office, Zimmerman and his girlfriend got into a verbal argument on Nov. 18, during which Zimmerman reportedly broke several of Schiebe's things and pointed a single-barrel shotgun at her.
