George Zimmerman arrested in Seminole County

November 18, 2013 

George Zimmerman has been arrested again following a disturbance call from Apopka, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office confirmed Monday.

Sheriff's officials said Zimmerman was arrested around 1 p.m. Monday after deputies responded to Topfield Court, in Apopka.

"Zimmerman will be transported and booked into the John E. Polk Correctional Facility," the Sheriff's Office said in a statement Monday. Additional details, including an arrest report and 911 call, will be released as soon as they are available, sheriff's officials said.

Monday's arrest was just the latest legal trouble for Zimmerman, who was acquitted in July of all charges in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin last year.

Zimmerman and his estranged wife, Shellie, were involved in a domestic dispute in September. Lake Mary police said Thursday that no charges would be filed against either of them because of a lack of evidence. That earlier dispute took place just days after Shellie Zimmerman filed divorce papers. Police had hoped to get evidence from an iPad that George Zimmerman allegedly smashed at his mother-in-law's Lake Mary home, but forensic examiners were unable to retrieve anything off the device.
