What she sounds like is a woman who just had a shotgun pointed at her by a man who is using said shotgun to demolish the interior of her home. What he sounds like is a man who has called 911 before in situations where he needs to establish his narrative on the record..... geez, he even says as much during his call.
Either way, the police ain't buying what he's selling, and neither is the court. He has been charged with aggravated assault and two misdemeanors, and he has been barred from possessing a firearm or leaving Florida.
Police and courts ALWAYS error on the side of caution in domestic cases. The worst thing a judge can do is to turn the accused back on the street and have them do something to the plantiff. It's much safer, from the judges career standpoint, to put sanctions on the accused and let the facts come out during trial.
It's S.o.P. even if the judge thinks the story is complete BS.
Unfortunately GZ has lost control of his life. Anyone he chooses to be alone with has the power to have him thrown in jail, simly by making an accusation against him.
He may be guilty, then again he may not. Even a trial won't give us a true picture.
My guess is that these charges will be dropped by the girl friend. Not sure if the state would persue on thier own after that.

People don't forget it, they just understand the relevance of those facts to the beating King took at the hands (and batons) of the police. Which is nill.
Any one who calls Rodney King a hero is most certainly forgetting (convienantly or other wise) that Rodney King was no Angel. Rosa parks is a hero, not King. And for you and Ulf, how many times to I have to quote my prior post that:
There's no question he was a symbol of police brutality.
An icon for police brutality? Certainly.
But the abuse of authority by police is colorless, it's white on black, white on white, black on black, and black on white.
