Apopka, FL - On Monday, George Zimmerman, 30, was arrested and charged with domestic aggravated assault, domestic battery and criminal mischief in Seminole County. Zimmerman remains in custody and no bond has been set until his first court hearing appearance. 
The Seminole County Sheriff's Office (SCSO) reported that at around 12:30 p.m., deputies responded to a 911 call about a disturbance in the 1300 block of Topfield Court in Apopka, at the home of George Zimmerman's girlfriend. She advised that she and George Zimmerman just had a verbal altercation that resulted in him breaking a glass table in the living room, retrieving a shotgun, and pointing it at her. She was able to get to the front of the house and call 911. As she approached the door, he ultimately pushed her out and locked the door behind her. He then barricaded the door with several pieces of small furniture.
She was not injured and no one else was at the home. When deputies arrived on scene they used her house key to enter and were able to push through the items behind the door. Zimmerman was not armed when deputies entered the home. He surrendered without further incident and was transported to the John E. Polk Correctional Facility (JEPCF) at approximately 1 p.m. He was charged with domestic battery, domestic aggravated assault and criminal mischief. He will remain on no bond status pending first appearance, according to the SCSO.  
Zimmerman was acquitted in July for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, 17.
