According to CNN, Zimmerman was arrested by police in Lake Mary, Florida, and booked at the John E. Polk correctional facility at 10:10 p.m. Friday. He is currently being held without bond and is scheduled to appear in court at 9:00 a.m. Saturday.

This is Zimmerman’s fourth brush with local police. In September 2013, he was accused of threatening his estranged wife – although she later decided not to press charges. In November 2013, he was arrested for domestic abuse of his girlfriend – who later also dropped the charges. In September 2014, Zimmerman was arrested for road rage.
