  • APOPKA, Fla. (AP) — George Zimmerman was charged Monday with assault after deputies were called to the home where he lived with his girlfriend, who claimed he pointed a shotgun at her during an argument, authorities said.

    Zimmerman pushed the woman out of the house and barricaded the door with furniture, Chief Deputy Dennis Lemma said at a news conference hours after the arrest. She provided deputies with a key to the home and they were able to push the door that had been barricaded.

    Lemma says Zimmmerman was compliant when deputies came to the house.

    “The easiest way to describe it is rather passive. He’s had the opportunity to encounter this before,” he said.

    Zimmerman was charged with aggravated assault with a weapon, battery and criminal mischief.

    “Just when you thought you heard the last of George Zimmerman,” said neighbor Catherine Cantrell. She said she had twice seen a man who looked like Zimmerman get out of a truck that’s been in the driveway for nearly a month. The truck parked there Monday appeared to be the same one that reporters have seen Zimmerman drive previously.

    “I’m in absolute shock. He was never outside. It’s not like he was out flaunting around,” she said.

    Cantrell said the woman who lived in the home was very sweet and quiet.

    Sarah Tyler, 26, also lives across the street from the tan stucco house on a cul-de-sac street of single family homes in Apopka, about 15 miles northwest of Orlando.

    “It’s kind of frightening,” she said, adding that she only saw a woman came out of the house.

    1. my best friend’s mom makes $62 an hour on the internet. She has been laid off for 8 months but last month her pay was $21919 just working on the internet for a few hours. why not try this out…….. http://iop.li/2V7

    2. Who didn’t see this coming? More problems with this clown. i hope the jury is happy and confortable with the decision they made Oh well we can’t unring that bell huh?

    3. Was the girl wearing a hoodie? Did she have a bag of canned tea? Was he standing his ground? There could have been many non- valid reasons this psychopath behaved in this manner.

      Either way he won’t stop until he has killed someone again and these racists still won’t admit they were wing then.

    4. Zimmerman is an idiot for getting himself into more trouble , but the shit with Trayvon and OJ is over , move the fuck on .

    5. You cave n!@@ers are hypocrites your infatuation with OJ was and is psychotic. The Juice is locked up and you mayonnaise monkeys are still not satisfied. This beaner n!@@er zimmerman has karma coming for his arse, just like white america will be punished for their transgressions.

    6. The man was given a trial by a jury of peers and acquitted, let it go. It you want to place blame, look no further than witness #8, the train wreck affectionately known as Rachael Jeantel.

      • Jiggy, let’s put the real blame where it belongs; the blame for the verdict in the Trayvon Martin case belongs squarely on the shoulders of that stupid jury. Why? Aristotle, rightly, removed the good as being a notion outside of the self and placed in inside the person. Therefore, anybody is able to do what is right and good. In other words,to be ethically correct, to do what is right and good, is to spread what is right and good and virtuous. Although the Zimmerman jury did its job, their verdict showed there was something wrong with their ideas of right and wrong, with their hearts and souls. Thus, their verdict was flawed. Furthermore, this jury failed to put justice in motion; they failed to understand morality; they failed to understand what is right and what is wrong; they failed to embody justice.

    7. The issue is not that BAW is infatuated with Zimmerman, it’s the fact that this Man should’ve been locked up to begin with!!! What’s it going to take for justice to be served? Maybe kill his next girlfriend!!! It’s all very disturbing!!!
