I’m going to take Robert Zimmerman’s advice and not jump to conclusions:
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.

Here’s the article:
FOX NEWS – George Zimmerman’s estranged wife has called police to her father’s home Monday, saying the former neighborhood watch volunteer who was acquitted of the murder of Trayvon Martin threatened her with a gun.
Zimmerman is currently being questioned by police.
Earlier, he was in investigative detention and was being held handcuffed in the back of a police cruiser — a procedure until probable cause is established for an arrest, Lake Mary Deputy Chief Colin Morgan told Fox News.
Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell says Shellie Zimmerman called police shortly after 2 p.m.
Bracknell told the Associated Press that officers are at the house trying to determine what happened.
“We’ve only heard one side of the story so far,” Bracknell said.
Morgan said there are allegations that Zimmerman came to the home and Shellie’s father was the aggressor in the incident. Police say Shellie told them that Zimmerman had his hand on his gun and became aggressive, then punched her father.
Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce last week.
UPDATE: I’m hearing reports that a gun was NOT involved. I am mobile now but will update with more soon.
UPDATE 2: ABC News is tweeting that Zimmerman is still being detained but wife and father don’t want to press charges:
George Zimmerman remains detained. Estranged wife & her father refuse to give sworn statement; say they do not want to press charges.
