George Zimmerman is back—personal arsenal and all.

After being cleared of all charges in a domestic-assault incident, in which his girlfriend insisted that she was misinterpreted by the police, Zimmerman was free to pick up his confiscated guns, which he did on Wednesday from the Seminole County sheriff’s office. He then accompanied his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, to pick up her own guns, which were also confiscated during the case, the New York Daily News reports.

The mini arsenal included a .380-caliber handgun, a 9-mm handgun, a Glock 19 handgun, a Kel-Tec 12-gauge shot gun and an AR-15 assault-style rifle.

According to the Raw Story, while picking up Schiebe’s weapons on Thursday, they were approached by a videographer, though they declined to answer any of the questions about their relationship and his new painting, which is up for bidding on eBay and has already passed the six-digit mark.

Zimmerman took to Twitter to complain about the videographer, accusing the freelancer of harassing him.

"Owner of this vehicle is pseudo media," he tweeted Thursday afternoon from the account @TherealGeorgeZ, with a photo of the license plate. "Harassing me at the Sheriffs office today. Get a clue, I still wont talk 2 u."

On Nov. 18, Scheibe called the cops on Zimmerman, saying that he had pointed a gun at her in her Sanford, Fla., home.

"You put your gun in my fricking face!" Scheibe can be heard saying on recording of the 911 call. She also warned the dispatcher that Zimmerman "knows how to play this game."

However, a little less than a month later, Scheibe insisted that she was misunderstood and felt "intimidated" by the police. She recanted all her allegations, asking for the charges to be dropped.

"I’m not afraid of George in any manner, and I want to be with him," she said.
