George Zimmerman, who was acquitted of second-degree murder in 2013 in the death of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, bonded out of a Florida jail Saturday after he was arrested on an aggravated assault charge, according to Orlando's WFTV.

Zimmerman was arrested at 10:10 p.m. Friday after an incident in Lake Mary, according to the John E. Polk Correctional Facility booking record.

Don West, Zimmerman's attorney, told the media that Zimmerman allegedly threw a wine bottle at his girlfriend last week.

Zimmerman wore blue scrubs and handcuffs when he appeared in court Saturday morning. According to WFTV, the judge granted Zimmerman a $5,000 bond and ordered that he surrender all firearms. Zimmerman, who bonded out of jail about 12:30 p.m. Saturday, also is forbidden to have contact with the victim, who was not identified, and is not allowed to consume alcohol.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Feb. 17.

Since the high-profile Trayvon Martin case, Zimmerman, 31, has been arrested multiple times.

In 2013, he was arrested for a domestic violence dispute with his estranged wife, who did not press charges. That same year, Zimmerman was arrested again on domestic violence charges after an encounter with a girlfriend, who ultimately changed her story and dropped the charges.

Zimmerman's most recent arrest before Friday was in September 2014 on road-rage allegations. The alleged victim in the incident also chose not to press charges.
