George Zimmerman was arrested late Friday for aggravated assault and domestic violence with a weapon. What was the weapon? NBC news reported that Zimmerman allegedly threw a wine bottle at his girlfriend, Florida police and his lawyer said.
The 31-year-old was detained at 10 p.m in Lake Mary, near Orlando, his booking record shows. At a Saturday morning court appearance, Zimmerman was granted a $5,000 bond, which he posted. He was released from jail a short time after noon and was ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim or travel to Volusia County, where she lives, reported NBC affiliate WESH.
Zimmerman’s attorney, Don West, said the woman is his girlfriend, and the incident involved him allegedly tossing a wine bottle at her earlier this week at his Lake Mary home. West said he did not want to “speculate” about the situation that led to the alleged assault, adding that Zimmerman “has not been lucky with the ladies.”
Zimmerman posted bond and was released at 12:15 p.m. He has been ordered to surrender all firearms even though this incident didn’t involve one, judge John Galluzzo said.
Galluzzo gave little information about the case, other than that it involved a wine bottle and allegedly happened at Zimmerman’s house. He asked that Zimmerman pack up his girlfriend’s belongings and give them to his lawyer.
Zimmerman is scheduled to appear back in court on Feb. 17.
