George Zimmerman back in Seminole County Jail
SEMINOLE COUNTY -- George Zimmerman's arrest following a domestic dispute with his girlfriend is the latest in a series of recent brushes he's had with the law.
He was taken into custody Monday after his girlfriend told deputies he pointed a shotgun at her, smashed a glass table and pushed her out of the house they shared.
In a 911 call, Zimmerman denied everything.
"I'm doing this again? You just broke my glass table. You just broke my sunglasses and you put your gun in my freaking face and told me to get the f**** out, this is not your house! No, get out of here!"
That was George Zimmerman's girlfriend yelling at him just before she tells 9-1-1 he pushed her out of her house and barricaded himself inside.
A few minutes later Zimmerman makes his own call.
"Um, my girlfriend has, uh, for lack of a better word, gone crazy on me."
With police banging on the door Zimmerman says his girlfriend is pregnant and blames everything on her.
"She just started smashing stuff, taking stuff that belonged to me, throwing it outside, throwing it out of her room, throwing it all over the house. She broke a glass table because she threw something on it. She got mad that, I guess, I told her that I would be willing to leave."
"I guess she thought I was going to argue with her, but she's pregnant. I'm not going to put her through that kind of stress."
It's Zimmerman's latest run-in with the law since his July acquittal in the Trayvon Martin murder case.
He's been pulled over twice for speeding.
And, in September, he was detained by police after his soon-to-be-ex-wife claimed he smashed her iPad in an argument.
No charges were filed then but, this time, with his new girlfriend, it's different.
"She alleged that he had broken a table and, at one point, pointed a long barrel shotgun at her."
Deputies pushed their way inside to find George Zimmerman unarmed and cooperative.
But he's now back in the Seminole County Jail charged with aggravated assault.
Deputies searched the home until late Monday night.
Zimmerman's attorneys from the Trayvon Martin trial say they will not defend him during this case.
And he could use them.
This afternoon he will go before a judge who could grant him a bond.
Even if Zimmerman makes bail, he will have to surrender his weapons.
