UPDATE 5:29 ET – Apparently Zimmerman pointed a shotgun at girlfriend Samantha Scheibe, pushed her out of their home, then barricaded himself in the home until he eventually turned himself in to police without further incident. ZImmerman has been charged with aggravated assault with a weapon, domestic violence battery and criminal mischief.
Following an earlier claim of domestic abuse in September by his estranged wife, George Zimmerman was picked up by police this afternoon for an alleged incident of domestic abuse involving his new girlfriend.
Paperwork is still being filed but more details including the 911 call are expected to be released to the public by Seminole County (Florida) officials. According to the Orlando Sentinel Zimmerman is due to appear in court tomorrow, and is currently being held without bail.
According to the new neighbors they suspected that Zimmerman was an undercover cop “because he walked around like an officer.”
