    George Zimmerman arrested on aggravated assault charge

    Florida authorities say George Zimmerman has been arrested on an aggravated assault charge.

    The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office says the 31-year-old Zimmerman was arrested in Lake Mary about 10 p.m. Friday and is being held at the John E. Polk Correctional Facility. The facility’s website says Zimmerman is scheduled for a court appearance at 9 a.m. Saturday.

    No further details were released. A message seeking further information was left Saturday morning by The Associated Press with Seminole County Sheriff officials.

    Zimmerman was acquitted in 2013 of a second-degree murder charge for shooting an unarmed teenager.
