Just two months after being acquitted of murder and several weeks out of the national spotlight, George Zimmerman is back in the news.
After being stopped twice by police in the past couple of weeks, on Monday he was taken into custody for questioning over a domestic dispute with his estranged wife, Shellie.
Both are accusing each other of being the aggressor in a conflict that sent police officers to her father's house, according to Lake Mary Police spokesman Zach Hudson.
However, Zimmerman's wife won't press charges.
Shellie Zimmerman says on a 911 call that her estranged husband punched her father in the nose, grabbed an iPad out of her hand and smashed it and threatened them both with a gun.
She also says on the call that he had his hand on his gun while he was in his car.
Zimmerman hadn't been arrested by late afternoon.
Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce last week, saying she and her husband had separated a month after he was acquitted of any crime for fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
Zimmerman's acquittal led to protests nationwide.
Shellie Zimmerman was asking that her husband pay for a permanent life insurance policy with her named as the beneficiary, according to a divorce petition made public last week.
In an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America" that aired last Friday, Zimmerman said her husband left her with "a bunch of pieces of broken glass" after the acquittal. She said he only stayed in their house three or four nights since the trial ended and that they even tried counseling. But she moved out Aug. 13.
"I have a selfish husband and I think George is all about George," she said.
George Zimmerman and his lawyers have made no public statements on the divorce proceedings. An email to Zimmerman's lawyers weren't immediately answered.
George Zimmerman'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."
Last month, Shellie Zimmerman, 26, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor perjury charge for lying about the couple's finances during a bail hearing following her husband's arrest after Martin's shooting.
George Zimmerman, 29, said he acted in self-defense when he killed Martin and the polarizing case opened up national discussions on self-defense laws and race. Martin was black. Zimmerman has a white father and Hispanic mother.
Shellie Zimmerman was sentenced to a year's probation and 100 hours of community service. Her husband did not attend the sentencing hearing in the Sanford courtroom.
