George Zimmerman
is being detained by police after allegedly threatening his wife's father with a gun.

It happened in Lake Mary, Florida this afternoon.  Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Zimmerman's wife, Shellie, called 911 and said her dad and George had gotten into a big argument and George had his hand on a gun.

We're told cops are at The Zimmerman house right now and have George detained for questioning.  There appears to be no one injured.

Shellie filed for divorce last week.  She went on TV and trashed George, saying he was making "reckless decisions."

Anyone surprised? George is volatile and it's just a matter of time before he is arrested and then he can't threaten (or shoot) anyone ever again.

He was having a heated argument with someone and put his hand on his gun. is that a crime? I don't know why Shellie is being so hard on him. Like he needs more publicity with the police.

He was probably telling him to get out of his house like he was a piece of trash, and George was saying no, he wanted to talk to his wife. Then they got into some sort of fight. I don't know why she would call the police. That is going to stir up the radicals even more. Now they will have more excuses to claim that he is violent.

Quick, send him more money so he can defend himself right? Nevermind that he'll probably use that money to pay for more guns, Twinkies and ice cream.

That's the paragon of society you idiots are defending. I hope you feel proud of yourselves. When he shoots and kills a white person will you still defend him?

Why doesn't Florida Stand Your Ground Law work in favore of the father-in-law? Fat George drove his truck onto Dad n Laws yard. Everyone that comes in contact with George needs to be armed.

Karma is a bitch. Until Zimmerman is behind bars. He will not get any peace. God judgement is worse than humans. # Justice for Trayvon Martin. No Justice. No Peace.
