George Zimmerman taken into police custody after incident with wife

George Zimmerman was taken into custody Monday after an apparent domestic altercation with his wife and her father at a home in Lake Mary, Florida, police said.

"As of right now, (George Zimmerman) has been placed in investigative detention," Lake Mary police spokesman Zach Hudson said.

The incident comes two months after Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, was found not guilty of murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida.

    Why anyone is surprise puzzles Me., the State of Florida created this monster, his silver tongue lawyer, alone with that bunch down in Florida, release this kraken on society. The bottom line is, Zimmerman flat out murder Trayvon Martin, I believe he was going to murder anyone who happen to cross his path that night, and now he is looking for his next murder victim. I do not see him lasting a year, he wants to go out in a blaze of bullets.

      Why didn't he murder that family of 4 that were in the flipped SUV? All he did was help them out of there.

    Latest word is no charges. Wife withdrew complaint.

    But hey, maybe next time. He might get struck by lightening or get cancer. Maybe he'll lose his hands in a meat grinder. Then you'll all be happy.
