Warrant: Zimmerman had 5 guns, ammo when arrested

SANFORD, Fla. - Court documents show George Zimmerman had five guns and more than 100 rounds of ammunition with him when deputies arrested him recently on a domestic violence charge.

A search warrant made public Tuesday by the Seminole County court clerk shows that Zimmerman had a 12-gauge shotgun, an AR-15 assault rifle and three handguns when he was arrested Nov. 18 at his girlfriend's house. The girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, told deputies that Zimmerman pointed a shotgun at her during an argument.

Zimmerman is free on $9,000 bail on charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief. He has pleaded not guilty.

Zimmerman was acquitted of murder in July in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin during a confrontation in the community where Zimmerman was a neighborhood watch volunteer.
