(CBS/AP) - George Zimmerman says in a court affidavit obtained by CBS News' Crimesider that he has liabilities and debts of $2.5 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.
Zimmerman, 30, was arrested Monday on charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief after his girlfriend told deputies that he had pointed a shotgun at her, pushed her out of the house they shared and smashed a coffee table.
Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watch leader, was acquitted earlier this year of fatally shooting Florida teen Trayvon Martin.
