George Zimmerman Charged With Aggravated Assault, Must Surrender Guns
George Zimmerman, who was acquitted in 2013 of shooting and killing unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, won’t be able to stand his ground for a while. He was arrested late Friday night on charges of aggravated assault and domestic violence with a weapon, reports CNN.
The 31-year-old Zimmerman was arrested by the Lake Mary Police Department at 10:10 p.m., according to the John E. Polk Correctional Facility’s website. Zimmerman appeared in court Saturday morning and a $5,000 bond was set.
Judge John Galluzzo gave Zimmerman until Tuesday to surrender his firearms and said he must appear in court by mid-February, reports the Orlando Sentinel.
