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 ...

A lot of nothing. Sounds like she's trying to make him mad so he'll blow up and end up in jail. Not nice.

It's just a matter of time. He'll make headlines again, and someone else will be dead at his hands. If I were his soon to be ex-wife, I would make sure he never knew where I was.

Another O.J. Simpson! He got away with the first killing, but will end up doing life in prison anyway.

Well, who didn't see this comming. This guy is a narcissist, who needed locked up when he shot trayvon martin. He has the top flight mentality when hes really some loser who got away with murder.
