According to reports from the Orlando Sentinel and CBS 12 News, George Zimmerman, who had recently been acquitted in the shooting death of 17-year old Trayvon Martin, is now in trouble because of a gun again.

A “possible domestic battery” involving Zimmerman and is wife at a house on Sprucewood Road, Lake Mary, Florida, is in “early stages of investigation. The house is reported to be the same one the couple had been hiding in before Zimmerman’s trial. Police officer Zach Hudson said Shellie Zimmerman had called for help, and a weapon was present in the house. A second complainant was Shellie’s father, David Dean.

In her divorce petition filed last week, Shellie Zimmerman stated the couple had separated Aug. 13, 2013. “I have a selfish husband and I think George is all about George”, she is reported to have said.

Also, according to an AP New source:

George Zimmeran’s brother Robert Zimmerman Jr., tweeted that “we’ve learned from GZ case not to `jump to conclusions,’ to wait for facts, & to avoid speculation. `News’ is a business – not your friend.”

  1. Good gods. I realize killing Trayvon was technically legal, but this just does not seem like someone who should be allowed out in public. Wasn’t there some suspicion about prior violent behavior during the trial?
