George Zimmerman was arrested late Friday for aggravated assault in a domestic violence case, according to Florida’s Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.
Then 31-year-old was detained at 10 p.m in Lake Mary, near Orlando, and has been denied bail, according his booking record. He is due to appear in court at 9 a.m. Saturday.
“Zimmerman was charged with aggravated assault and is currently on a no bond status,” the Sheriff’s Office said. “The next step in the process is first appearance. At this time, the judge may address bond status.”
Zimmerman was acquitted by a Florida jury in 2013 of second-degree murder in connection with the killing of Trayvon Martin.
He filed a defamation suit against NBC News but a judge dismissed that claim last summer. He has appealed the judge’s decision.
