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 ...

His behavior over the last few months CLEARLY shows he is incapable of restraint and abiding by the law, but so many here were persecuting a teenager over the actions of a grown ass man. I am older than Zimmerman and have never been arrested or even pulled over for speeding in my life, so what is so hard for him to stay low after his acquittal? That speaks worlds to his lack of character but the proof was in the pudding before the trial ended and most refused to see it because they rather incriminate a dead child. Disgusting fools.

Personally I dont believe that TM was the one who started that whole incident. I bet GM pulled his gun and TRAYVON was fighting for HIS LIFE when Fat Georgie SHOT AND KILLED that boy. (boy was not used in a racially derogatory manner)

"According to Chief Steve Bracknell, Shellie Zimmerman called 911 claiming George Zimmerman had a gun and was making threats. The victims are not speaking to police and were waiting for their attorney to arrive, Bracknell said."

This is insane. He's already proven he is not a responsible gun owner and yet he still gets to carry one. It's only a matter of time before he kills again.

Maybe if he kills a white person he'll get convicted.

This child murderer was crazy from the get-go. They let him off because of his skin color.
