George Zimmerman

HANDCUFFED ON TAPE

'Get on Your Knees!!!'

It's like a scene out of "America's Most Wanted" -- cops swarmed George Zimmerman's car yesterday and ordered him to get down on his knees before handcuffing and detaining him ... all over a domestic dispute involving his estranged wife ... and the insane moment was caught on tape.

Lake Mary PD just released the dashcam footage to TMZ, showing a police cruiser careening down the street and coming to a stop about 50 yards away from George's car, parked outside the home he shared with his estranged wife ... before she filed for divorce.

It's all in the video ... police ordered George to get out of his vehicle, turn around, and get on his knees. George complied and he was immediately handcuffed.

As we reported, George's estranged wife Shellie called 911, claiming George had threatened her and her dad inside their home ... gesturing toward his gun. She also accused George of punching her dad in the face.

George was briefly detained for questioning following the incident, but Shellie eventually changed her story -- claiming no gun was ever involved -- and declined to press charges. George was eventually released without being arrested.

LMAO!!!!

George Zimmerman's lawyer said today he will no longer represent him, even as police say that Zimmerman or his wife could face charges over Monday's domestic dispute.

A spokesman for Mark O'Mara, who succeeded in winning an acquittal for Zimmerman in the racially charged Trayvon Martin murder trial, said O'Mara will not represent Zimmerman in any future litigation including his divorce and any possible charges resulting from the Monday incident involving his wife and father-in-law.

O'Mara will still be Zimmerman's lawyer in a defamation suit pending against NBC and in the remaining motions stemming from the Trayvon Martin trial, including a motion to reimburse Zimmerman's attorneys and a motion to censure the prosecution.

O'Mara appeared to struggle with his anger at his client during Monday's incident in which he went to Zimmerman's house while police were still there. During a press conference later, O'Mara was asked if he had any advice for Zimmerman, and he answered, "Pay me."

She should be charged with lying to the police. Why is she allowed to waste the police time and energy with her childish games.

His wife already admitted she lied. Why is TMZ so stuck on this guy; aren't you supposed to be chasing around Hollywood heroes to keep the masses enthralled and ignoring Obama's disastrous Presidency?

He'll be well rid of that lying wife. She's putting his life and the responding officer's lives at risk.

Only in Florida would he be able to harass, assault and commit domestic violence, and NOT be arrested! We know he had a gun - his attorney confirmed it to CNN.

He is a fat, stupid, aggressive little creep. No decent person has THAT many run-ins with the law in a lifetime unless they have problems. He hit a cop, had restraining orders out against him, killed a kid and now this. There were the speeding incidents recently as well.

Decent law-abiding citizens don't carry a fully-loaded gun with a bullet in the chamber and the safety OFF when they go to Target -- not unless they are paranoid, overcompensating cowards.

I love his butch truck and he has a rottweiler (dog of choice for aggressive white trash). I bet he's never had the back off that truck in his life which just goes to show you how absolutely dumb he is to drive around an empty space he will never use-- well, in addition to the empty space between his ears, that is.

I love that the father-in-law isn't pressing charges for fatboy hitting him. Did you see the pics of the Dad's face? His nose looked more broken than George's did after he fought with Trayvon. By all rights, I guess the father could have shot and killed this fat fool.

George Zimmerman is going to do something else to hurt another innocent person. It's just a matter of time.
