George Zimmerman, the acquitted killer of Trayvon Martin, was arrested Monday for allegedly battering his girlfriend and pointing a shotgun at her.
He was arrested at his girlfriend's house outside of Orlando by the Seminole County Sheriff's Department, following a 911 call from the woman. Police said during a press conference that Zimmerman's girlfriend claimed he pointed a long-barreled shotgun at her and pushed her out of her house, then destroyed some of her property before barricading himself inside the structure.
"The victim indicated that she and George Zimmerman were having a verbal dispute and at that time she alleged that he had broken a table and pointed a long barrel shotgun at her," Deputy Dennis Lemma told reporters.
The woman was unharmed, police said. Zimmerman reportedly surrendered to authorities without further incident.
Authorities told Orlando news station WESH 2 that the 911 call and arrest report would be released soon.
Zimmerman faces a felony charge of aggravated assault with a weapon, and two misdemeanors for criminal mischief and battery. He's expected to appear in court on Tuesday.
Zimmerman was involved in another domestic disturbance in September after he allegedly punched his father-in-law and threatened him with a gun. His estranged wife has filed for divorce, but she declined to press charges.
He also made waves in the national press last August, after showing up at Florida gun manufacturer Kel-Tec's facilities to inquire about the legality of purchasing a military-style tactical shotgun.
