Zimmerman's Estranged Wife: He Threatened Me With A Gun

ORLANDO - George Zimmerman was detained and questioned Monday afternoon after his wife told authorities that he threatened her with a gun, according to police officers in Lake Mary.


Officers said it was "too early to tell" whether an arrest was expected.

Shellie Zimmerman called 911 and told a dispatcher that George Zimmerman struck her father and threatened her family with a gun.

"I don't know what he's capable of -- I'm really, really scared," Shellie Zimmerman told the dispatcher.

Several officers responded to the home and launched a battery investigation.

"He punched my dad in the nose," Shellie Zimmerman said during the 911 call.

Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce last week.

In the divorce petition, Shellie Zimmerman says she and her husband separated a month after Zimmerman was acquitted of any crime for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin last July.

Zimmerman's acquittal led to protests nationwide.
