George Zimmerman is back in jail and Florida authorities have released 911 calls giving conflicting versions of the events leading up to his arrest on domestic violence charges yesterday. In girlfriend Samantha Scheibe's call, she can be heard shouting "You put your gun in my freaking face and told me to get the f--- out!'" before Zimmerman apparently pushes her out of the house, reports Mediaite. "He knows how to do this, he knows how to play this game," Schiebe tells the operator, describing the four guns Zimmerman had in the house, where they had been living together since August.

Zimmerman barricaded himself inside the house and gave up peacefully when deputies arrived, but not before making a 911 call of his own, telling the dispatcher "I just want everyone to know the truth," reports the Orlando Sentinel. "My girlfriend has ... for lack of a better word, gone crazy on me," he said as police knocked on the door. "She just started smashing stuff, taking stuff that belonged to me." Zimmerman said he had started packing his things—including the guns—after a dispute with Scheibe, who he said was pregnant and had decided to raise the child on her own. Police say the 27-year-old isn't pregnant. Zimmerman's wife filed for divorce in early September; a few day later, she told cops he'd threatened her with a gun, though she eventually declined to press charges.
