Deputies arrested Shellie, 25,  around 3:30 p.m. in Seminole County and transported her to the John E. Polk Correctional Facility.  She was booked on one count of perjury.  Her bond was set at $1,000, which was posted shortly before 5 p.m.

Shellie's husband, George Zimmerman, has his $150,000 bond revoked after prosecutors accused Zimmerman and his wife of misleading a judge about how much money they had to put up for the bond.  George Zimmerman returned to the jail on Sunday, June 3.

George Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, said a new bond hearing date is set for June 29.

Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder and has pleaded not guilty.
