Notorious ex-neighborhood watch worker George Zimmerman is making headlines this weekend as reports claim he has had enough of the Sunshine State and is planning a permanent move from Florida.
According to reports, Zimmerman is fed up with the negative attention he has received since last summer’s Trayvon Martin trial.
WARNING TO ALL U.S. CITIZENS OUTSIDE OF FLORIDA: George Zimmerman is leaving the Sunshine State for good, TMZ has learned … and he might be heading for your neck of the woods. As we reported, George has had about enough of Florida, primarily because he feels like he’s become a sitting duck for the media and law enforcement to prey on him. We’re told he would have moved a lot sooner, but the domestic violence incident with his GF last month — the one with the shotgun — kept him on lockdown within State lines … literally. He had to get an ankle monitor. (TMZ)
Despite the news, there is no definite word on where Zimmerman will land next.
But now that his GF has recanted her claims and the charges have been dropped, Zimmerman’s a free man once again … a free man who can legally pack heat again … and he’s planning to make the big move in the next couple weeks. As for where Zimmerman is headed — he’s not saying … because he’s still afraid for his safety after the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. (TMZ)
Buzz behind Zimmerman’s girlfriend deciding not to press charges against him following a publicized arrest last month hit the Internet a few days ago.
The decision not to pursue the case comes days after Zimmerman’s girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, said in a court document that she didn’t want him to be charged. “Upon reviewing the recent affidavit of the Ms. Scheibe and taking into account the conflicting statements about what occurred, the failure to cooperate with the ongoing investigation, and a lack of any other corroborating evidence or witnesses, there is no reasonable likelihood of successful prosecution,” Archer said in a written statement.

Zimmerman’s attorney Jayne Weintraub issued a statement on the case fading to black this week.
“On behalf of George Zimmerman, I am pleased that I was able to present credible evidence to reasonable prosecutors who took the time to listen and that justice prevailed. This demonstrates how great our system is.” (Statement)
