George Zimmerman is once again a free man after an arrest on criminal charges — but his freedom carries conditions.

The former neighborhood watch volunteer who was acquitted in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin earlier this year was released from jail Tuesday pending arraignment on the latest charges against him: aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief.

Zimmerman was released on the condition that he wear an electronic monitor, keep his distance from guns, and stay away from the girlfriend who accused him of trying to choke her and then a week later pointing a shotgun at her. His bond was set at $9,000.

Zimmerman's arrest is the latest of several brushes he's had with the law following his acquittal for the death of Martin, an unarmed black teen.
