Defense: George Zimmerman in police custody

MIAMI (AP) - The defense team for George Zimmerman, the man charged in the killing of Trayvon Martin, says he is in police custody in Florida.

Zimmerman's legal team said in a tweet Sunday that he was in police custody, two days after a judge ordered him back to jail. Zimmerman's bail was revoked because the judge said he and his wife lied to the court about their finances so he could obtain a lower bond.

A jail spokeswoman said Zimmerman had not yet arrived and that officials were waiting for him. It was not clear where exactly he was taken into custody, or how he was being taken to the jail.

Prosecutors had said Zimmerman and his wife told the judge at a bond hearing in April that they had limited money, even though he had raised about $135,000 through a website.
