Warrant shows Zimmerman had 5 guns, 100-plus rounds of ammo when arrested in domestic case

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.
