Earlier today, George Zimmerman was charged with aggravated assault with a weapon, battery and criminal mischief. Florida police reported that Zimmerman’s girlfriend claimed he aimed a shotgun at her while inside their home. After police arrived, Zimmerman forced his girlfriend out of the home and locked himself inside. Police reported that there were at least two weapons present in the home.
Although Zimmerman’s girlfriend did not report any injuries, Zimmerman was charged with aggravated assault — which is a felony. The other two charges against him are misdemeanors. The charges come upon Zimmerman following an altercation with his ex-wife back in August, in which he was not charged.
