Zimmerman met with deputies at 1:25 p.m. in a business parking lot at Lake Mary Blvd and I-4. He was then transported in a white van by deputies to the jail and arrived there at 1:45 p.m. with his attorney Mark O'Mara.

The Seminole County Sheriff's Office says Zimmerman will be held in administrative confinement, single cell arrangement.

O'Mara spoke to the media after Zimmerman was taken to the jail and said he will file a motion for a bond hearing on Monday. O'Mara says he hasn't decided if Zimmerman will testify at next bond hearing

On Friday a judge revoked his bond. Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester said that Zimmerman and his wife, Shellie, misled the court about how much money they had available when his bond was set for $150,000 in April. Prosecutors claim Zimmerman had $135,000 available that had been raised by a website he set up.

Zimmerman's wife testified at the bond hearing that they had limited funds available since she was a nursing student and Zimmerman wasn't working.

Defense attorney Mark O'Mara said the fact that Zimmerman and his wife never used the money for anything indicated "there was no deceit."

Prosecutor Bernie De la Rionda described the Zimmermans' testimony as "misleading."

Prosecutors also said Zimmerman had failed to surrender a second passport, but the judge dismissed that concern as the equivalent of someone who has lost a driver's license, applies for a new one and then finds the old driver's license.

Zimmerman is pleading not guilty to second-degree murder and claims self-defense. Zimmerman shot Martin in February during a confrontation at a gated community of townhouses in Sanford, Fla., where Zimmerman lived and where Martin was visiting his father's fiancee.
