LAKE MARY, Fla.
Channel 9 has learned police were called Monday to a domestic disturbance involving George Zimmerman and a gun at a home in Lake Mary.
Police were called to the scene on Sprucewood Road about 2:30 p.m. though no other details have been released.
Last week, Zimmerman's wife, Shellie Zimmerman, filed for divorce, weeks after her husband's acquittal in the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

This was a BULLETIN on ABC Radio!
Just the media screaming, “See! We were right! We were right!”
This is breaking news locally in central Fla. but I did not categorize it as such on freerepublic.
Just heard he’s in custody
Please say it ain’t so —
This will mean more exclusive interviews for the wife.
Nancy Grace will be right on it.
police were called Monday to a domestic disturbance involving George Zimmerman and a gun
Ooooooooh, did George and the gun have it out?
Did he hurt the gun? Did the gun hurt him?
I didn’t know he was married to the gun or
are they just going together.
Zimmerman isn’t making it easy to defend him.
Maybe George has judicial PTSD. He’s been through the wringer.
Maybe the father-in-law is using George’s need to carry as an excuse to get leverage for Shelley in the divorce.
Who can tell?
wall-to-wall on Orlando TV. Sheesh
Maybe he should move to a small town in Nebraska and work at the public library. Keep a low profile. Stay of our trouble.
WATCH LIVE: George Zimmerman taken into custody; Sky 6 over scene
The Circus continues...
This entirely. Is he trying to get himself thrown in prison? I guess that low-profile thing is over. #ShortLifeExpectancy
incident happened at the home of George’s in-laws. This will break nationally.
Cynically, Obama asked him to do this to bump Syria off the front page. :)
He just cost himself the right to carry, domestic problem and he had a gun.
There will be no more legal Martinizing by Mr. Z.
I say...He got into a verbal with the wife.Big deal.
She told the cops he’s probably got a gun and maybe he did but it was not part of the dispute.
My 2 cents
I suspect it wasn't involved at all but since he may have been carrying, the media used that as a headline........
From the Slantinel:
He is in police custody but not under arrest — yet.
I disagree. I've thought from day one that Zimmerman was a bit of an idiot. An idiot who was certainly not guilty of murder, but an idiot nonetheless. This may be confirmation of the "idiot" part (we'll see as the facts come out), but does nothing to change the "certainly not guilty of murder" part.
Get away from his soon to be ex-wife and heal his emotional wounds.
We don’t even know the details. Don’t rush to judgment. We aren’t even sure from the news reports that the gun was his and not another party’s (though I think it was probably his).
I’m getting the same sick feeling I did the day Mel Gibson went out and proved that he really WAS an anti-Semitic whackjob.
Maybe George really IS just a wee bit too eager to get into a fight.
This is in the news ONLY because the left wasn’t able to put him in jail for self-defense.
If Zimmerman goes to prison, he’ll come out feet first within 6 months unless he is put into solitary confinement.
>> Who can tell?
Yeah, I’m going to a) chill b) pray for Z and his family and c) wait for more information.
More $$$ for TrayMom & TrayDad.
Not necessarily, depends on the details.
I’ll refrain until the facts come out, but George should not get within earshot of his ex or any of her family until things settle down. Even when 100% innocent, low profile is the rule.
We know his wife wants half of everything he’s got and everything he’s going to get. She doesn’t seem credible to me.
I think the smart money is exactly on this. Verbal arguments during an argument usually get overblown. Odds are he made no threat overt or covert and his wife is just trying to build a case for the divorce.
As a Prosecutor, seen his type before. Something wrong with this guy.
So Zimmerman will be followed till the day he dies, and the news will report every activity, even thought 99% no longer care.
I find it amusing that so many people are either sure GZ is guilty of something OR sure that he isn’t and his wife is. When nobody knows ANYTHING about what actually happened.
Zimmerman isnt making it easy to defend him.
Back in 1997, when my wife separated from me, without cause, they confiscated my SKS and there was a restraining order. Again, this was without cause. There was no domestic violence, no screaming (by me, anyway), no threats, nothing.
I withhold all judgement until I get enough information to know what is going on. When I first heard about the zimmerman shooting, I thought he was a trigger happy cop wannabee, until I did a couple of weeks of reading of the detials.
As happened then, it is possible the press is manipulating the form of information.
I am guessing Al Sharpton needs the frequent flyer miles.
If he skates on this one he needs to Fugetahbout the heifer spouse and GTF out of Fla before he is pushed into something he cant skate on.
He seems to be imploding. When I saw the title of this article, I said out loud even though I am by myself, “Oh, no.” If he pointed a gun at the wife's father, Zimmerman is lucky to still be alive. If he keeps this up, he's going to be killed. I am so sorry this is happening.
If that is him in the blue jeans and plaid shirt then he is just standing around with the officers near him but he is not in custody.
Interesting. How would you characterize his type?
But did you get it back?
Unbelievable. This guy is showing little regard for the law since he got out. He’s already had two speeding tickets, and now he threatens his father in law with a gun? I mean, come on. I agree with his wife that he must really feel invincible after all this. This not normal behavior from someone who literally just avoided life in prison.
Sadly, it is pretty much standard operating procedure for women to make false accusations of domestic violence against the husbands they are divorcing.
She just plead guilty to perjury, so hopefully the court will not give her the benefit of the doubt when she tells wild stories.
Police investigate disturbance involving Zimmerman
Police questioning George Zimmerman after domestic incident
LAKE MARY —
George Zimmerman is being questioned by Lake Mary Police following a domestic incident.
Lake Mary Police said George’s estranged wife Shellie called police to her father’s home on Sprucewood Road after threatening her with a gun.
Police were called shortly after 2 p.m. Monday.
Shellie filed for divorce Sept. 5, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
His wife will get rich and celebrated delivering his head on a platter.
Interesting. Just out of curiosity, does this mean you disagree with the verdict?
Its very easy for people to get in trouble on a domestic dispute. Guy feels he can have it out with his wife. she and her parents disagree. Things get emotional, police get called, they say he threatened.
Very possible to be unrelated to TM, in terms of Zimmerman’s personality.
If an ex prosecutor you may also know wives tend to make accusations it’s an easy way to get the guy locked up, restraining order, etc.
