(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. (Read more George Zimmerman stories.)
