George Zimmerman Arrested After Assaulting his Girlfriend

George Zimmerman was very blessed after he was acquitted of the charges he faced after killing unarmed teenager, Trayvon Martin, back in 2012. Zimmerman has recently been arrested for aggravated assault, and is now back on trial.

Zimmerman, who used to be a neighborhood watchman, had gained press from around the country because of the shooting and became a symbol that many people would now associate with the issue of race and brutality within the country. The events, no matter what the outcome of the trial, definitely affected Zimmerman’s life, and put a large weight upon his shoulders because his face was now known throughout the country.

Florida officials arrested Zimmerman after a domestic disturbance was called upon at his home in Lake Mary. Zimmerman allegedly struck his girlfriend with a wine bottle, which he threw after an argument. He is being charged for aggravated assault with a weapon.

Zimmerman was arrested and brought to John E. Polk Correctional Facility, on January 9, at 10 pm. After spending hours in a jail cell he was released on a 5,000-dollar bail.

Zimmerman then returned back to his home, where he was asked to pack up all belongs that his girlfriend had at the residence, and has been asked to have no contact with her at this moment, and not to go to Volusia County, where she lives. Seminole County Judge John Galluzzo, has also asked that Zimmerman hand over all firearms in his possession to the authorities. Zimmerman is set to appear in court on February 17, where it will be decided if he is guilty and should be charged.

Ever since the shooting, Zimmerman has had to deal with the law because of his actions, and was arrested in 2013 for aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief, on his girlfriend at that time as well, however, no charges were enforced because there was a lack of evidence.

It could be that the stresses and the social pressures that he is facing is causing Zimmerman to attack and take his frustrations out by acting out in these manners. While it may be understandable that he may be facing this type of tension because of the events that have unfolded over the past couple of years, but this type of behavior is demonstrating that Zimmerman may be unstable, and that he has an aggressive personality, which may make people wonder about the Trayvon Martin case all over again.
