George Zimmerman was charged Monday with aggravated assault with a weapon, battery and criminal mischief after his girlfriend claimed he pointed a long-barreled shotgun at her inside their residence, Florida police told reporters during a press conference Monday.
After police responded to her 911 call, Zimmerman pushed his girlfriend out of the home in Apopka, and barricaded himself inside. A table was broken inside the residence, and Zimmerman was not holding a weapon at the time. Police said there were at least two weapons inside the home.
Zimmerman’s girlfriend did not sustain any injuries.
The aggravated assault charge is a felony, and the other two charges are misdemeanors.
Police did not charge Zimmerman after an altercation with his estranged ex-wife in August.
