ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - George Zimmerman is asking a judge to change the terms of his bond so he can have contact with the girlfriend he's accused of assaulting.

Zimmerman on Monday filed an affidavit from his girlfriend that says she doesn't want him charged with aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief.

In the signed affidavit, Samantha Scheibe says she hasn't been coerced into the request. She says detectives misinterpreted what she said. In the affidavit, she calls Zimmerman "my boyfriend."

Zimmerman was arrested last month after Scheibe accused him in a call to 911 of pointing a gun at her, smashing a coffee table and pushing her outside.

Prosecutors could continue with the case despite Scheibe's request.

Zimmerman was acquitted of any crime last summer in the shooting death of teen Trayvon Martin.
