GEORGE ZIMMERMAN ARRESTED! No bond status. Accused of pointing shotgun at his current girlfriend. Barricaded himself in home while the woman was forced outside. The woman met police outside the residence and provided them a key. Police entered, pushing barricaded furniture away and gained entrance to the dwelling. George was unarmed at that time and taken into custody without incident.
One of the charges is a felony. This is GZ’s GF, Samantha Schiebe.
Zimmerman is being held in jail without bail and will make his first appearance in front of a judge Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. ET.
Schiebe called 911 at 12:30 E.T., Lemma said. Schiebe told dispatchers that Zimmerman broke a table and pointed the long-barreled shotgun at her. When she called for help, Zimmerman pushed her out the door and pushed small furniture in front of the door.
Schiebe gave responding deputies a key to the house. When they pushed the door open, they found Zimmerman, who was sitting and unarmed, Lemma said. He was passive and cooperative, Lemma said.
The aggravated assault charge, for allegedly pointing the gun at Schiebe, is a felony, Lemma said. The battery charge is for the alleged pushing and the mischief charge is for allegedly breaking the table, he said.
The sheriff’s office is seeking a search warrant to look for two guns they believe are inside the home, he said.
