SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — A prosecutor says George Zimmerman’s girlfriend claims he choked her about a week ago but she didn’t report it to police at the time.

The prosecutor told a judge about the allegation during a first appearance Tuesday on domestic violence-related charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief.

The judge set George Zimmerman’s bond at $9,000 and ordered that he not possess guns or ammunition. He was ordered to stay away from the girlfriend’s house and wear a monitoring device.

Zimmerman was taken into custody Monday after girlfriend Samantha Scheibe told deputies he pointed a shotgun at her during an argument.

In a 911 call, Zimmerman denied pointing a gun at Scheibe.

The 30-year-old former neighborhood watch volunteer was acquitted earlier this year of criminal charges in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.

    I can’t wait to see the video of the assault alleged by the GF. No video, no proof and it’s a he said/she said and the GF has zero-credibility with me.

    Let me do the math. George Zimmerman killed a black teenager and don’t go to jail. Hit his Hispanic wife and didn’t go to jail. Hit a white woman with blonde hair, He goes to jail.

    A MENANCE TO SOCIETY! Those jurors should be feeling really proud right about now/NOT! And yes, only $9,000 bond on a felony charge, oh wait, that’s because daddy dearest was a former judge. After all of the exposure of Florida and it’s stupid laws, why would anyone with any since want to live there/horrible state with a false image of glitz and glamour. Azz backwards place, they sill have plantations down there.

    How can a bond be only $9,000 or actually $900 to be paid since its actually 1/10th of the actual bond? It sounds like a kid’s game with FLORIDA being the kid; same as the FLORIDA judge, jury, and prosecution played the kids in the Trayvon Martin murder but not guilty by reason of self defense case. He’s probably headed for a tragic ending because I know he’s still laughing not only at that ridiculous acquittal, but the fools who paid into his phony online defense fund. ha! ha!
