Officials say George Zimmerman, the neighbourhood watch volunteer acquitted earlier this year in the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager, has been arrested following a disturbance call from a house in Florida.

A sheriff's office statement says Zimmerman was arrested this afternoon after deputies responded to a disturbance call at a house in Apopka, northwest of Orlando.

Zimmerman will be transported and booked into jail.

The statement provided few other details, and it was not immediately known what charges he faced.

Zimmerman and his estranged wife were involved in a domestic dispute in September. Police said no charges were filed against either of them because of a lack of evidence.

That dispute took place just days after Shellie Zimmerman filed divorce papers.
