Florida police arrest George Zimmerman on aggravated assault charge

George Zimmerman has been arrested again, The Associated Press reports.

The 31-year-old Florida man was arrested in Lake Mary on Friday night, authorities said, and he was held overnight ahead of a Saturday morning court appearance, where his bond was set at $5,000. Zimmerman was ordered not to have further contact with the alleged female victim. The incident reportedly occurred at Zimmerman's home, and he was ordered to turn over any firearms at the residence, along with any possessions the woman left behind, to his lawyer.

A Florida jury found Zimmerman not guilty in 2013 on all counts for the shooting and killing of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager, on Feb. 26, 2012. But the killing ignited protests across the U.S., with President Barack Obama addressing the jury's decision by saying that, "once the jury's spoken, that's how our system works…(but) Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago."
