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."

Story developing ...

Sounds to me like her dad should have stood his ground and shot that fat **** right in the face.

George is getting set up. He should not be going ANYWHERE near these people. The Mrs. is seeing big $$ signs and has announced she has a book deal. She is going after whatever money George has left. She reportedly is receiving a little over $4,000 a month from the donated defence fund that was set up for him. She also has announced that if George wins his lawsuit against NBC for lying and falsifying his 911 phone call tapes she wants a share of that too.

NBC screwed him over big time but since the Mrs. is so greedy maybe he should consider a prime time full apology from the network and let them off the hook. (Sorry baby, no payday -- giggle.) Then I think I would disappear. Change my name. Leave Florida, maybe go west or something and start over. Few people can come out of something like this in good shape. It was a sad deal all around but when you come after someone, knock them down and put your hands on them like Trayvon did, you are asking for trouble.

I don't understand why people think it was ok for Trayvon to attack George and George shouldn't defend himself.

A soon to be "ex" wife and her family would never, ever, ever stretch the truth during a divorce. Right?

Of course the police didn't arrest Georgie. It's a habit with them. Seriously though where's the pool regarding when Georgie is gong to kill again. I want to place another bet. I'm feeling lucky.
