George Zimmerman has been taken into custody by Florida police.

According to ABC News, Zimmerman is being held by police following a domestic altercation involving a gun. The neighborhood watchman has been placed in investigative detention after suspicion of domestic battery against his estranged wife, Shellie.

Shellie's attorney told ABC News that her husband pulled out a knife on her today after she discovered a gun in their home. He then pulled out a gun on her and her father, Colin Morgan, after the verbal altercation intensified.

The domestic incident comes only two months following Zimmerman's acquittal in the Trayvon Martin murder trial and mere days after Shellie filed for divorce.
