UPDATE: George Zimmerman in custody after domestic altercation

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - George Zimmerman in custody after domestic altercation in central Florida Monday.

Zimmerman's wife called police to her father's house, saying the former neighborhood watch volunteer, who was acquitted of murder, threatened her with a gun.

Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell said Shellie Zimmerman called police shortly after 2 p.m.

Lake Mary Police PIO Officer Zach Hudson confirms George Zimmerman is currently in custody.

Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce last week.

In the divorce petition, Shellie Zimmerman says she and her husband separated a month after Zimmerman was acquitted of any crime for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin last July.

Zimmerman's acquittal led to protests nationwide.
