George Zimmerman Released From Jail After Court Hearing

Posted: Updated:

George Zimmerman has been released from jail hours after his first court appearance on domestic violence-related charges. 
 
Zimmerman was seen walking out of the jail smiling, then getting into a car. 
 
His bond was set at $9,000 earlier in the day. 
 
The judge ordered that Zimmerman not possess guns. He was ordered to stay away from the girlfriend's house and wear a monitoring device.
 
Zimmerman has been charged with aggravated assault, a third-degree felony. He was also charged with battery and criminal mischief, both misdemeanors. 
 
Zimmerman was taken into custody Monday after girlfriend Samantha Scheibe told deputies he pointed a shotgun at her. In a 911 call, Zimmerman denied pointing a gun at Scheibe.

Zimmerman says in a court affidavit that he has liabilities and debts of at least $2 million.
 
Zimmerman filed the affidavit for indigency Tuesday so that he could hire public defenders. The application says he has less than $150 in cash on hand and doesn't have an income
