A central Florida judge freed George Zimmerman on $9,000 bond on Tuesday and forbade him from possessing weapons or ammunition on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence during a dispute with his girlfriend.
Zimmerman, who was acquitted this summer in the fatal shooting of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, was arrested in Florida on Monday after police said he pointed a shotgun at his girlfriend.
Zimmerman, 30, was taken to a jail in Sanford, Florida, and faces three charges including aggravated assault, a felony; domestic violence battery; and criminal mischief.
