We couldn’t make this stuff up. George Zimmerman is in police custody after officers responded to a domestic disturbance involving a gun at his home in Florida.
ABC News reports:
According to police in Lake Mary, Florida, Zimmerman is being detained by police after a domestic dispute involving his wife and father-in-law, Colin Morgan.
“There was some kind of a domestic, we know that with his wife and father-in-law. Apparently there were some weapons involved and threats,” the deputy police chief in Lake Mary told ABC News.
He has not been charged with any crime.
Zimmerman’s wife, Shellie, recently announced plans to divorce.
Her attorney told ABC News that George pulled a knife on her today after she discovered a firearm in the house they shared. He then pulled a gun on her and her father after a verbal altercation went bad, according to attorney Kelly Sims.
George Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, did not immediately respond to request for comment.
Josh Margolin and Aaron Katersky contributed to this report.
This story is definitely still developing.
UPDATE: AP reports a conflicting story saying that Zimmerman has NOT been arrested.
Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell says Shellie Zimmerman called police shortly after 2 p.m. Monday.
Bracknell says Zimmerman hasn’t been arrested and officers are at the house trying to determine what happened.
