Serial law breaker and teen killer George Zimmerman has been arrested on an aggravated assault charge in Florida.
Zimmerman, 31, was arrested in Lake Mary, Fla., at about 10 p.m. on Friday, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office and is being detained at the John E. Polk Correctional Facility, the New York Daily News reports. Zimmerman is scheduled for a court appearance at 9 a.m. Saturday.
The authorities refused to release any further info on the arrest of Zimmerman, the man who infamously killed black teen Trayvon Martin in a gated community in Sanford, Fla., in 2012.
Zimmerman was acquitted in 2013 of a second-degree murder charge for shooting Martin.
Since his acquittal, Zimmerman has had several brushes with the law:
— He was arrested on charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief after his then-girlfriend said he pointed a gun at her face during an argument, smashed her coffee table and pushed her out of the house they shared. Samantha Scheibe decided not to cooperate with detectives and prosecutors didn’t pursue the case.
— Zimmerman was accused by his estranged wife of smashing an iPad during an argument at the home they had shared. Shellie Zimmerman initially told a dispatcher her husband had a gun, though she l
ater said he was unarmed. No charges were ever filed because of a lack of evidence. The dispute occurred days after Shellie Zimmerman filed divorce papers.
— Zimmerman has also been pulled over three times for traffic violations since his acquittal.
