George Zimmerman has reportedly been labeled a psychopath by a woman he is accused of assaulting.
Friday, the 31-year-old was arrested for allegedly throwing a wine bottle in the direction of a woman he was dating and also breaking her phone. The unnamed woman claims that she was trying to break off the relationship with Zimmerman when he became enraged. She also claims he is withholding one of her paintings.
Zimmerman’s attorney, Don West, said his client denies the allegations. He appeared in court Saturday morning where a judge set his bond at $5000.
He next court appearance is February 17. The New York Daily News has details from Zimmerman’s latest incident:
The distraught woman, unnamed by Lake Mary police, told cops Zimmerman is a “psychopath” she regretted hooking up with, according to an arrest report released Monday by the suburban Orlando police agency.
In 2013, Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder charges in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. He’s been arrested multiple times since his acquittal. Two of those arrests involved women.
According to the Associated Press:
He was arrested on charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief after his then-girlfriend said he pointed a gun at her face during an argument, smashed her coffee table and pushed her out of the house they shared. Samantha Scheibe decided not to cooperate with detectives and prosecutors didn’t pursue the case.
Zimmerman was accused by his estranged wife of smashing an iPad during an argument at the home they had shared. Shellie Zimmerman initially told a dispatcher her husband had a gun, though she later said he was unarmed. No charges were ever filed because of a lack of evidence. The dispute occurred days after Shellie Zimmerman filed divorce papers.
The woman in this latest case, whom police have not identified, is allegedly Zimmerman’s girlfriend.
