Sanford - Court documents show the former neighbourhood watchman involved in a high-profile shooting of an unarmed black teen had five guns and more than 100 rounds of ammunition with him when deputies arrested him recently on a domestic violence charge.

A search warrant made public on Tuesday by the Seminole County court clerk shows that Zimmerman had a 12-gauge shotgun, an AR-15 assault rifle and three handguns when he was arrested 18 November at his girlfriend's house.

The girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, told deputies that Zimmerman pointed a shotgun at her during an argument.

Zimmerman is free on $9 000 bail on charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief. He pleaded not guilty.

Zimmerman claimed self-defence and was acquitted of murder in July in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin during a confrontation.
