It was a high-profile arrest that seemed to shock virtually nobody.
The news that George Zimmerman had been arrested Friday night and charged with domestic violence — apparently for chucking a bottle of wine at his girlfriend — left many people shaking their heads Saturday morning.
Mediaite's Joe Concha declared Zimmerman to be "offically O.J. Simpson 2.0" — a guy who many thought "got away with murder" but then couldn't stay out of trouble afterwards.
TheBlaze readers seemed to largely agree.
It’s the OJ syndrome— Bound and determined to get arrested. Georgie should count his blessings, shut up and disappear into the woodwork for his own good.
I said from the begining that Zimmerman/Martin is what happens when two idiots cross paths….Ya’ll didnt want to hear it at the time but looks like i was correct.
c’mon man……….its past the time when you should have grown up…………….
For many Twitter users, the incident was an opportunity to vent their frustrations, calling Zimmerman a "creep" and decrying the state of policing and race relations in the U.S.
