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 ...

This is what happened with Trayvon. He lost his temper and pulled the gun. The kid had a choice, run and get shot in the back or try to take the gun away. Zimmerman was losing that battle and shot the kid. He and his lawyers made up a story that could not be refuted. Let's see what Florida does now. This is assault with a deadly weapon.

Wait! He's still allowed to carry a gun? WTF - has society gone mad? He's a loser and he's proven that he's over zealous when it comes to authority and his little man stance and carrying a gun....he needs to serve some time.

A kid that assaulted him first hence the self defense plea and not guilty verdict. The story doesn't detail the situation and why he may or may not of displayed a gun. I know i am not the only one that will not play around in this day and age with any dumb **** that comes to me in a threatening manner.

Shellie better watch out. He might stand his ground and shoot her in self-defense of his emotions. So the night when George Zimmerman killer took the life of an innocent kid he was medicated, frustrated and MAD about his wife not being in their home? No wonder he had such aggression towards "these punks that always get away" .. His exact words! No wonder he pursued Trayvon. looking for an altercation. He was mad, in a bad mood from obvious personal reasons with the wife. The prosecution did a plss poor job at laying out the mindset of killer z on that night. He was OBVIOUSLY disturbed! He has a history of violence DO***ENTED And now”

“Zimmerman had a long history of violence, including a restraining order for domestic violence, felony charges of resisting arrest, and assaulting an officer (the charge was pled down to a misdemeanor and then closed; Zimmerman's dad was a magistrate at the time). He was bounced from a job as a bouncer for being too aggressive with patrons, the New York Daily News reported. And a family member accused him of a pattern of sexual molestation. He wasn't convicted of any felony charges, which could have barred him from a gun license, but in some societies, people would determine that such a history makes someone less than an ideal candidate for the right to carry around a hidden loaded weapon.”

Nonsense    

Zimmerman is a hot headed fool and a menace. But just so we are straight on our facts, Martin became the aggressor and is not a little boy. Zimmerman killed in self defense. Doesn't make him an honorable member of society, just not guilty in the Martin case
