Zimmerman arrested on aggravated assault charge

Posted: Updated:
SANFORD, Fla. (AP) -- Florida authorities say George Zimmerman has been arrested on an aggravated assault charge for allegedly throwing a wine bottle at his girlfriend.

The Seminole County Sheriff's Office says Zimmerman was arrested last night in Lake Mary and is being held at the John E. Polk Correctional Facility.
  
During a court appearance this morning, Zimmerman's bond was set at $5,000 and he was ordered to avoid contact with the woman, who was not identified.
  
Judge John Galluzzo gave few details of the incident, but said a wine bottle was involved and that the alleged assault happened at Zimmerman's home.
  
The judge told Zimmerman to stay out of Volusia County, where the alleged woman lives.
  
Zimmerman has had several brushes with the law since he was acquitted in 2013 of a second-degree murder charge for shooting unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin.
