Via CNN reports:
George Zimmerman was taken into custody yesterday after a domestic altercation in Lake Mary, Florida with his ex-wife Shellie, police said.
“As of right now, he has been placed in investigative detention,” Lake Mary police spokesman Zach Hudson said.
Shellie Zimmerman placed the call, claiming George had punched her father in the nose and was making threats with his hand on his gun. She says, “He’s just threatening all of us with his firearm … he’s gonna shoot us!”
Shellie says George also smashed her iPad and slashed it with a pocket knife. She added, “I don’t know what he’s capable of.”
Shellie filed for divorce from George last week.
Hudson said there were three parties involved in the altercation.
The incident comes two months after Zimmerman, a volunteer neighborhood watch captain, was found not guilty of murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford.
