(Newser) – It was allegedly a thrown bottle of wine that landed George Zimmerman in jail for 14 hours this weekend and not a firearm, though the judge in his aggravated assault case has ordered Zimmerman to surrender all his guns, reports the Orlando Sentinel. Zimmerman was arrested Friday night, though the incident in question took place just before midnight Monday, when cops pulled over his girlfriend.

"The driver stated she was just involved in a domestic altercation with George Zimmerman," says a police rep in Lake Mary, Fla. Zimmerman has been ordered to have no contact with the girlfriend, who is not being named by cops. He's out on $5,000 bail, and is next due in court on Feb. 17. His lawyer Don West tells NBC that he won't "speculate" about what precipitated the argument, but adds that his client "has not been lucky with the ladies." (Read more George Zimmerman stories.)
