George Zimmerman has been taken into custody in Central Florida, according to reports from local media. Zimmerman is famous for his involvement in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, and the subsequent trial. Police in Lake Mary said that Zimmerman had been detained after an incident involving him, a gun and another person.
No other details about the incident have been made public yet, but Zimmerman’s every action tends to capture a great deal of attention. It is close to certain that more details about the incident will begin to emerge soon. In recent weeks, Zimmerman has been in the news twice for being caught while speeding.
Zimmerman gun incident
The nature of the incident involving Zimmerman is unclear at this time. Police said that Zimmerman was put into custody after an altercation with another person. There was a threat involved in the altercation, according to police. The police did not say whether or not Zimmerman had made the threat, or what action had precipitated his arrest.
Just days ago, George Zimmerman’s wife Shellie filed to divorce him in a Florida court. It is unclear whether or not the incident involved Zimmerman’s wife. Police responding to questions from local media were recalcitrant. Zach Hudson, a spokesman for the Lake Mary Police said, the officers were “trying to determine what exactly happened.”
Trayvon Martin shooting
Trayvon Martin was a Florida teen shot dead by George Zimmerman last year. The trial to determine whether or not Zimmerman was right in shooting Martin, who the court ruled had made Zimmerman feel threatened, attracted attention from all over the United States, and the highest reaches of the Federal Government.
George Zimmeman’s acquittal in that trial has made him infamous across the United States, and his every move is reported on by the media in his home state and across the country.
