CNN is reporting that George Zimmerman, the man who was acquitted for the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was arrested Friday night on a charge of domestic violence with a weapon and aggravated assault.
According to Seminole County booking documents, Zimmerman, 31, was arrested by the Lake Mary police and was booked at the John E. Polk Correctional Facility at 10:10 p.m.
This isn’t Zimmerman’s first time facing charges of domestic violence with a weapon.
Since his high-profile acquittal, Zimmerman has had three other encounters with the Lake Mary police.
In September 2013, Zimmerman’s estranged wife, Shellie Zimmerman, called 911 to tell police he had punched her father and was threatening her with a gun. She opted not to press charges.
In the second incident, which occurred in November 2013, Zimmerman was arrested and accused of domestic violence by girlfriend Samantha Scheibe, who later said investigators had misinterpreted her statements and dropped charges.
In September 2014, Zimmerman was involved in an incident of road rage.
He is being held without bond and will appear in court at 9 a.m.
