(CNN) -- George Zimmerman's wife was arrested Tuesday afternoon for allegedly lying at his bond hearing about the couple's finances.

Shellie N. Zimmerman, 25, faces a perjury charge, according to Jackie Barnard, spokeswoman for the State Attorney's office for the Fourth Judicial District of Florida.

Shellie Zimmernan will be arraigned July 31, according to the Seminole County Sheriff's Office. She met conditions for a $1,000 bond and was released Tuesday afternoon.

Why do I have the feeling that this is that jurisdiction’s way of saying, “don’t you dare question us?”

How to make up for “keeping the man down” in 1 easy lesson. They want this to turn into an us vs them situation. This administration is peeing their pants with glee.

This whole case is beginning to stink more and more of political level harassment.

Arraignment in six weeks and a $1,000 dollar bond? as my son would say: “It’s a nothingburger Dad.”

In other words if there was really something there then the bail would have been higher.

Also something to think about with her being arrested, her HOME ADDRESS where she has been hiding from the public is now out in the open and the same nutcases that want to harm or kill her husband now know where to get her at.

Lying? This is no doubt about the money Zimmerman does to control that the persectuor is claiming he did. Wait until the judge finds out the truth and gets real pissed that he has been lied to.

I don’t think I have ever seen a case where a perjury charge was brought as a result of a bail hearing. This is sheer intimidation. The state knows they don’t have a case, they just are using this for a press release.

It will be interesting to see Dershowitz’s take on this one.

It is obvious the Zimmerman's are not savvy, smart people. They have made a mistake, that if they had told their lawyer in the beginning, would not have been made. I don't understand why money donated for Zimmerman's defense to a fund should be considered their money. If they had used that for bail...it would have been embezzlement or fraud. Someone needed to clarify it all to the judge in a legal way, and that should have been their attorney before bond was set. Obviously the Zimmerman's didn't know to trust their attorneys.

This has turned into a circus and the media is more than happy to crucify them and make them both look like evil people, rather than unravel it and look at the truth and simply dumb things that were done about reporting this fund money. These two people might never have a life worth living in the U.S. after this is over. What a mess.

This is sheer intimidation.

They will use the perjury charge as leverage to get Zimmerman to cop a plea on a minor charge in exchange for dropping the charge against the wife.

It’s legal for cops/the state, to lie to you, but illegal for you to lie to them. Go figure....

Never ever talk to cops, never answer their questions, show ID if you HAVE to, but that’s it.

What makes you think they did not tell their attorney? The original representation quit over the website and the legal defense fund. It was in the news and known prior to O’Mara’s taking up their case. It was also referenced by the judge in front of O’Mara in the hearing and if it was something O’Mara was unaware of he would have immediately objected and sought leave to confer with the client about something material of which he was unaware.

Unless George and his wife decide to hang tough. After all the s***storm they’ve had to endure, I’ll bet they are willing to do just that. Hang tough, or you’ll both be financially screwed for life. I hope they understand that.

Proving perjury is not at all easy. First the false statement must be material and in this case, since Zimmerman didn't skip bail, it is immaterial.

The purpose of bail is to make it difficult for the defendant to skip town and not show up for a hearing. Had she lied or stretched the truth to get a lower bail and then they had skipped out of the country or failed to show for a hearing, then she could be held liable for perjury, but since Zimmerman surrendered immediately when his bail was revoked, there was no material misrepresentation. The state knows this. They are just playing games.

The evil sadistic judge is in on the fix.

This entire case is tyrannical. What Corey, the judge, et al are doing is pure political persecution. It's a evil power lust.

I would get banned if I expressed what true justice would demand for the judge and Corey. This case is right out of Kafka.

All people of principle should be infuriated to their core over this blatant abuse of governmental power.

It’s pretty high-handed, I think.

Not sure why the prosecutor feels compelled to bring charges on this, other than she thinks she’s God.

It’s a friggin’ lynching attempt!!! So she did not mention money that had come from the public to help with legal expenses? So WHAT??? That money was never intended to enrich the family and there is no evidence any of it was used for anything except legal expenses! Now if she went out and bought a brand-new car, that would be another matter, but nothing inappropriate happened!

This is all part of their effort to salvage something out of the whole PR scheme. They’ll hold the charges against his wife over his head and try to get him into a plea deal. Mark my words.

You have to wonder when Zimmerman's father (the judge) is going to start speaking out about what the hell is happening and/or when he is going to start stepping in and providing legal advice and making counter lawsuits.

I would expect that any missteps by the DA are going to come at a high career price.

This is becoming a comic opera of sorts. It will be interesting to see how things go, once everything gets to trial and a jury gets involved.

That’s it. Any matter of influencing voting or “sending a message” to the citizenry is secondary at best. They want a conviction and they don’t care how they get it.

This Zimmerman case seems to be another avenue for Obama to drive a wedge between the Black Panthers and “Whitey”; although they’re having to stretch to cast Zimmerman as “Whitey”.

Blacks, hurt most by Obama’s antics, will continue to be “all in” for him to the tune of 97% come voting time; but I think their attitudes are likely to backfire on them big time eventually. Whitey’s getting tired of it.

Today, at a store, I held the door open for a black woman who was exiting the store using a walker, in order to keep the door from smacking her as she exited. In so doing, I was trapped behind the door until she got herself and her walker all the way out. - She immediately started castigating me for being in her way as she tried to get to the rocker behind the door (on display for sale).

I realize she was most likely tired, maybe in pain from walking on the concrete floors in the store, and she just wanted to get to the rocker as quickly as possible. . and I was trying to get out of her way ASAP . . and all that only took a very few seconds. I did tell her that I was just holding the door open for her, but rudeness seemed to her to be justified.
