George Zimmerman arrested on aggravated assault charge

From the AP via the Houston Chronicle:

Florida authorities say George Zimmerman, whose acquittal of murdering an unarmed black teen sparked a national debate on race and self-defense laws, has been arrested for allegedly throwing a wine bottle at his girlfriend.

The Seminole County Sheriff's Office says the 31-year-old Zimmerman was arrested for aggravated assault at his home in Lake Mary about 10 p.m. Friday.

Zimmerman was released on a $5,000 bond Saturday afternoon. At a court appearance earlier Saturday, he was ordered to avoid contact with the woman, who was not identified.

Just your typical upstanding citizen patrolling the neighborhood for typically upstanding reasons of citizenship. Not violently natured at all. Just ready to do his solemn duty as an American.

Either that, or he's a maniac who is fated to kill again. One of those two.
