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 ...

Its the perfect setup. Stick by him through the trial because if she doesnt, it looks bad for him....which could hurt his chances of being acquitted. Now she files for divorce and we have this "incident" with his father. If George was found guilty and went to jail, she would have gotten nothing in a divorce.

He seems to be suffering from PTS (post traumatic stress) having been attacked by Travon Martin and then by politicians and prosecutors.
