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.
The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office listed Zimmerman in custody at the John E. Polk Correctional Facility after he was arrested at about 10 pm on Friday night in Lake Mary, Florida.
This isn’t Zimmerman’s first time facing charges of domestic violence with a weapon. He was arrested in November 2013 after he pointed a shotgun at a girlfriend’s face and shattered a glass table. Prosecutors later dropped the charges after his girlfriend changed her mind about pursuing the matter. He was also put in handcuffs over a similar incident that September, but his girlfriend refused to press charges then as well.
