Court revokes bail of George Zimmerman, Travyon Martin shooter

Breaking from ABC News (my emphasis):

A judge revoked bond today for George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of a Florida teenager in his gated community, and ordered him to surrender himself in 48 hours.

Prosecutors had filed a motion today to revoke his bond, accusing Zimmerman of “deceiving” the court about his finances and his possession of a second passport, which he apparently acquired two weeks after the shooting.

More explanation in the story. It appears that someone considered Zimmerman a flight risk after all.

UPDATE: Very nice catch on the passport problem by commenter BeccaM. Thanks.
