The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office in Florida has reported that 31-year-old George Michael Zimmerman has been arrested on Friday, January 9, according to cnn.com.
According to Judge John Galluzo, Zimmerman allegedly threw the wine bottle at the then-girlfriend and broke her cellphone. The arrest was made after police pulled over his girlfriend for a minor traffic violation. Information provided at the traffic stop was enough to warrant probable cause which lead to Zimmerman’s arrest. Galluzo ordered Zimmerman at the Saturday hearing to avoid contact with the woman who reported him and to surrender any weapons that may be in his possession to a third party.
Zimmerman was released on a $5,000 bond Saturday, January 10.
