DOCUMENTS: George Zimmerman's Girlfriend Wants Charges Dropped, Court Filing Reveals

Scheibe and Zimmerman have not been in contact since he was charged with felony aggravated assault following the Nov. 18 incident, when Scheibe called 911 claiming Zimmerman had threatened her with a gun.

"When I was being questioned by police I felt very intimidated …" Scheibe says in the new affidavit. "I believe that the police misinterpreted me, and I may have misspoken about certain facts in my statement to police."

At the time, she told a 911 dispatcher, "He's in my house, breaking all my sh*t because I asked him to leave. He's got a freaking gun, breaking all my stuff right now."

Scheibe now claims that Zimmerman "never pointed a gun at or toward my face in a threatening manner." What's more, she says she wants to get back with him, insisting, "I want to be with George."

His attorney is asking the court to at least modify the conditions of his bail so that he and Scheibe can resume contact.
