Deputies: George Zimmerman charged with assault, battery after dispute at girlfriend's home

George Zimmerman was charged Monday with assault after deputies were called to the home where he lived with his girlfriend, who claimed he pointed a shotgun at her during an argument, authorities said.

Zimmerman pushed the woman out of the house and barricaded the door with furniture, Chief Deputy Dennis Lemma said at a news conference hours after the arrest. She provided deputies with a key to the home and they were able to push the door that had been barricaded.

Lemma says Zimmmerman was compliant when deputies came to the house.

"The easiest way to describe it is rather passive. He's had the opportunity to encounter this before," he said.
Zimmerman was charged with aggravated assault with a weapon, battery and criminal mischief.
