George Zimmerman is currently in “investigative custody” with Florida police in connection with a domestic battery charge involving his wife, Shellie. He is not under arrest nor has he been formally charged, but police in Lake Mary, Fla., are holding him at a relative’s house after his wife called 911, claiming Zimmerman had threatened her. Allegedly, he pulled a knife on her during an altercation, and then pulled a gun on her and her father. Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce last week.  

Zimmerman, who was found not guilty for the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in July, has remained in the spotlight this summer. In August he was photographed taking a tour of a Florida gun manufacturer, and has been pulled over for speeding twice.

This story is still developing. Stay tuned.
