(Newser) – George Zimmerman is back behind bars this afternoon after surrendering to Florida authorities after a judge revoked his bail and gave him 48 hours to turn himself in, reports the New York Times. Zimmerman lawyer Mark O'Mara announced his client's return to jail in a blog post, and says that Zimmerman's safety remains a concern—even behind bars. “We are very concerned about safety still,” O’Mara said. “There are ongoing threats and concerns and complaints."

Zimmerman turned himself in some 40 minutes before his 2:30pm deadline, and is now listed as being held without bail. The judge in the case yanked Zimmerman's bail after finding that he had access to $135,000 in a PayPal account set up to handle donations for his legal defense.
