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."

Why oh why am I not surprised? I'm also not surprised that people are still defending him and his actions. My Lord don't let something like this happen to no one in any of your family. This incident and the TM incident, because sheesh, I can only imagine.

He has MAJOR control issues. These control issues were why he shot a young man walking home from 7-11. He should not be allowed to have a gun.

He had a domestic incident with a previous girlfriend so I'm not surprised. And oh yeah, he killed someone too!! Nope, no surprise but I'm sure the cops in Florida will say he was just standing his ground.

Oh my, Self Defense!! Lets see how this one plays out!! Issuing a threat with a gun is a crime, threating someone with a weapon is a crime.

Hey he was just standing his ground, right ? This guy is going to kill someone for no reason and then all of his supporters are finally going to understand what he really is.

Of course he did! He already got away with murder once, he'll do it again I have no doubt about that. Like an animal that got its first taste of blood, he'll look for it again.
