Prosecutors Drop Aggravated Assault Case Against George Zimmerman

George Zimmerman.

Prosecutors announced Friday they are dropping their case against George Zimmerman. He was arrested earlier this month on suspicion of aggravated assault.

A woman who Zimmerman said was his girlfriend accused the former Neighborhood Watch volunteer of throwing a wine bottle at her during an altercation.

Prosecutors now say the woman is recanting her story. They say they’re dropping the case because of a lack of evidence.

Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder after shooting unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin during an altercation in Sanford in 2012. A jury acquitted Zimmerman in 2013.
