George Zimmerman’s wife has been arrested for perjury.

Shellie Zimmerman has reportedly been booked into the same facility currently housing her husband. Prosecutors believe she lied to investigators regarding the Zimmerman’s financial situation.

From the Orlando Sentinel:

“According to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were alerted by prosecutors Tuesday that a warrant had been issued for Shellie Zimmerman, 25. She was arrested about 3:30 p.m. “at the location she was residing in Seminole County,” deputies said in a statement.

She was booked on a perjury charge, with bond set at $1,000. She is currently “in the process of posting bond,” deputies said.

The arrest comes after prosecutors in George Zimmerman’s case told Judge Kenneth Lester that Shellie Zimmerman lied at her husband’s finances, in order to conceal about $135,000 from the court.”
