George Zimmerman’s estranged wife served him with divorce papers Monday night while he was in a solitary cell at the Seminole County Jail, TMZ first reported.

Mr. Zimmerman was arrested for the alleged aggravated assault of his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe. He was told by a Florida judge Tuesday that he must surrender his guns in order to be released from jail. He was released that afternoon on $9,000 bond. 

In the months following his acquittal, Mr. Zimmerman’s wife, Shellie, reportedly had a hard time tracking her husband down to serve him with the divorce papers, but his arrest made it all possible, her lawyer told TMZ.
