George Zimmerman has been arrested again and is en route to Seminole County (Fla.) Jail, reports indicate, after an alleged dispute with his pregnant girlfriend.

Just before 1:30 p.m., Sherriff Don Eslinger confirmed that Zimmerman had been arrested today and was being driven to the county jail in Sanford.

The Sheriff's Office reported that the agency had arrested him after being dispatched to a disturbance on Topfield Court in Seminole County near Apopka.

Zimmerman's new girlfriend lives in that part of the county.

TMZ says he has been booked for a domestic incident - a "situation involving his girlfriend," who is reportedly pregnant - but few other details are available.

The former Neighborhood Watch volunteer, 30, was acquitted in July on the charge of murdering Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager, last year.

George Zimmerman’s wife, Shellie, was arrested Tuesday and charged with perjury for allegedly lying at his bond hearing about their financial situation.

Shellie Zimmerman quickly posted $1,000 bond and was released.

At Zimmerman’s April 20 bond hearing, after which he was released on $150,000 bail, Shellie, 25, was asked whether the couple had any money.

Prosecutors say bank records show Shellie stashed cash in a safe deposit box and transferred nearly $75,000 from her husband’s bank account into hers.

When her husband was granted bond and released from jail after being charged with second-degree murder in Trayvon Martin case, the money was returned to George Zimmerman’s account, according to an affidavit.

Shellie Zimmerman has thus been charged with perjury during an official proceeding, a third-degree felony with a maximum sentence of five years.

George Zimmerman was not charged with perjury because he was never asked about money while under oath; his bail has been revoked, however.

George Zimmerman made his first court appearance since being officially charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

Zimmerman wore a gray prison jumpsuit and spoke only to answer "Yes, sir," after being asked questions about the charge against him and his lawyer.

His hair was shaved down to stubble and he sported a thin goatee, which appeared consistent with his booking photo from the day before (below).

He resurfaced Wednesday to turn himself in after weeks in hiding. Meanwhile, a new document provided additional details on the prosecution's case.

Judge Mark E. Herr said he found probable cause to move forward with the case and an arraignment would be held on May 29 before another judge.

The affidavit of probable cause prepared by prosecutors shed some light on why they chose to charge Zimmerman in the February 26 shooting.

The Orlando Sentinel says that on that night, Trayvon Martin's mother identified screams heard in the background of a 911 call as her son's.

There were doubts as to whether Martin or Zimmerman called for help.

Prosecutors interviewed a friend of Martin's who was talking to him just before the shooting. Martin told the witness he was being followed and was scared.
