George Zimmerman

Seminole County police have arrested Stand Your Ground poster boy George Zimmerman and charged him with domestic assault. According to The Sun Sentinel, Zimmerman was taken into custody and transported to jail earlier today.

Zimmerman was acquitted of shooting and killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin earlier this year. He has had several run-ins with police since his acquittal.

From Orlando Sentinel:

George Zimmerman has been arrested and is en route to the Seminole County Jail, according to Sheriff Don Eslinger.

It’s not clear what happened or what crime he’s accused of committing, but just before 1:30 p.m., Eslinger confirmed that Zimmerman had been arrested today and was being driven to the county jail in Sanford.

He said more information would be available shortly.

WESH-Channel 2 reported that Zimmerman was accused of domestic violence by a girlfriend.
