George Zimmerman’s Wife Arrested

This sure can’t help George Zimmerman’s case. The wife of the Sanford, Fla., neighborhood watchman who shot Trayvon Martin earlier this year was arrested on one count of perjury Tuesday, according to a press release from law enforcement officials. Twenty-five-year-old Shellie Zimmerman had a warrant issued for her arrest this morning, and was picked up by deputies from the Seminole County sheriff’s office and booked Tuesday afternoon. She posted $1,000 bond, according to a spokesperson for the sheriff's office. Prosecutors in George Zimmerman’s case argued earlier this month that Shellie Zimmerman had misled the court regarding the couple’s financial standing, neglecting to mention funds her husband had collected through a PayPal account that totaled nearly $135,000.
