(Newser) – George Zimmerman's estranged wife called police to a Lake Mary residence this afternoon for a "possible domestic battery," police tell the Orlando Sentinel. The AP reports soon-to-be ex-wife Shellie Zimmerman called police from her father's house, saying that Zimmerman threatened her and her father "with his hand on his gun." A police spokesman tells WKMG that cops are "trying to determine what exactly happened," but WKMG reports that in the 911 call Shellie alleged that Zimmerman punched her father in the nose and smashed her iPad.

No one was injured, and Zimmerman has not been arrested and is "no longer in investigative detention," per police, though WKMG reports he remains at the Sprucewood Road home. This latest incident comes just days after Shellie Zimmerman announced she was filing for divorce, then blasted George Zimmerman on television. Zimmerman is apparently having a particularly vexing time staying out of trouble of late.

Wow so why are we still so fascinated with inbred fat dumb fucks in America. Everyday we can just walk to WalMart and see this stupid drama. We don't need to see this in our news that is so blurred and in-accurate anyway.

P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; } If someone is determined to hate you, they'll hate you no matter what you do. Malcolm X had posters of himself taking a sniper's position in the window to kill random white people with a high powered rifle, with the legend “By Any Means Necessary”, but how many attacking George Zimmerman question the legitimacy of “civil rights” leaders who were friends with Malcolm X? Al Sharpton tried to turn the fraudulent Tawana Brawley incident into a means of enslaving the whites, but how much condemnation do those denouncing Zimmerman here unleash at him? Many young black men walk around with their pants pulled down to reveal the crotch of their underwear, an open threat to women of imminent rape, but where is the condemnation here of that?

The Medias were not content is demonizing Mr. Zimmerman and have been following him wishing for a chance to attack him one way or another. Now his Wife is joining in, seeking her 10 minutes of fame. She no doubt hs been listening to OutHouse Lawyers and ignoring her own Real attorney's advice. She wants 50% of future earnings and present holdings before Debt Payments are made. They had an Agrement to devide their possessions a few days ago when she took possession of her 'stuff' in the company of her and George's Attys. She elected to arrive UNANNOUNCED at George's domicile and enter same to gather more items that were not listed and retrieved earlier. George objected to this and she called 911 with LIES claiming the threats, after he refused her quest. The Police investigated the scene and discounted her claims and upheld George's. No Further Investigation Required, Complaint Unfounded. Mr'Z's atty arrived on the scene and explained all to the gathered Media outside of the home. Why than was this article slanted to the UNTRUTH? ~Rick Magee, FL "MOLON LABE"
