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."

This man's a psycho with a license to kill. He got away with it once already. Im still laughing that his wife is getting $$$ from the idiots that sent funds in for his defense. There is a fool born every minute! He'll eventually get what's coming to him and no defense fund will help prove he's innocent.

It amazes me how quickly they detained him. The police didn't move that fast to detain him after he shot and Killed Trayvon Martin.

First off he is not a celeb. This is not court tv. Shut up second do your research of TM and you will find kid was on drugs and he wasn't a baby and he was a giant a hole. Third this was a self defense case by look at GZ he was being beat up. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to Figure that out. Also who the **** cares. Next I want on the news every single person on a daily bases that is "Threatened " with a gun
