George Zimmerman Arrested for Domestic Violence Against ‘Girlfriend’ at Apopka Residence
BREAKING: Here we go again, George Zimmerman arrested in Apopka after domestic disturbance, Seminole County Sheriff’s Office says. Sheriff Don Eslinger told the Orlando Sentinel that Zimmerman, who was acquitted for the murder of unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin, is en route to the Seminole County Jail. It is not clear what he is accused of doing, but there is some word that it could be a domestic related incident. WESH-Channel 2 reported that Zimmerman was accused of domestic violence by a “girlfriend” and not his wife. He will reportedly be taken to the jail for booking. Karma.
From WESH: He was arrested at about 1 p.m. Monday at his girlfriend’s home on Topfield Court in Apopka following a 911 call. Neighbors told WESH 2 News that they didn’t know the woman was dating Zimmerman, and they thought the man might have been an undercover cop because he walked around like an officer. Neighbors said his truck had been parked in the neighborhood for about a month.
[UPDATE #1 11/18/13]: Eyewitness News 9 is reporting that Zimmerman’s domestic violence arrest involved his new girlfriend and a gun. Surprise, surprise. There’s more, TMZ is reporting that Zimmerman’s girlfriend claims she’s pregnant.
[UPDATE #2 11/18/13]: George Zimmerman was arrested for allegedly pointing shotgun at his girlfriend, sheriff’s office says.
