Zimmerman, Acquitted In Martin Case, Charged With Aggravated Assault


George Zimmerman, who was acquitted in the Trayvon Martin killing, faces charges of aggravated assault with a weapon after allegedly throwing a bottle of wine at his girlfriend, the Orlando Sentinel reports. Zimmerman, 31, was arrested over a fight in a residence after his girlfriend was pulled over in a traffic stop. A judge ordered Zimmerman to have no contact with the victim.

Zimmerman, the former Neighborhood Watch volunteer, was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges in the Feb. 26, 2012 shooting death of unarmed 17-year-old Martin. Zimmerman told the Sentinel in September that he was homeless, jobless and deeply in debt, due to legal bills.
