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 ...

Well, he got away with it once, so maybe he thinks he'll get away twice.

Florida law states that in a domestic violence, if cops come out, at least one person is going to jail. Looks like he's going to jail. Hope he's put in general population.

i think that people who get away with killing someone under Florida's law should be forced to reside in another state that doesn't have such a law. That way if they strike again, they will have to suffer the consequences.

The gun nuts will continue to elevate this guy to hero status but we all know Georgie will eventually be arrested for some type of violence related incident and sent to prison.

If someone doesn't stand their ground with him first.

1st Trayvon,now his Father-In-Law. Smh the Justice system is so screwed it's past ridiclous. People with mentalities like his will always be in the media for something they did wrong time & time again,b/c no matter how many times a person may get off the hook for a crime,you can't strip away that behavior with a finger snap. Oh yea you can try & mask it for a little while,try & act innocent,but the REAL YOU and YOUR ACTIONS will always surface eventually with time!
