Well, there is joy in Mudville, because George Zimmerman has another legal problem.

The details are murky and unclear, but that’s not stopping the “I told you so” reaction, as if a new problem proves guilt on a past problem. It really is a horror show to watch (Twitter feed embedded at bottom of post, view at your own caution)(added — more “reliable” news feed now at bottom as well).

Here’s the most recent Orlando Sentinel update as of 3:51 p.m., click the story link for further updates, George Zimmerman in custody, police investigate ‘possible domestic battery’:

George Zimmerman, the former Neighborhood Watch volunteer acquitted of murder in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, is under investigation this afternoon after his wife told police that he’d threatened her family, police confirmed.

Police are investigating a “possible domestic battery” involving Zimmerman on Sprucewood Road, Lake Mary police Officer Zach Hudson said this afternoon.

About 3:40 p.m., Hudson said that Zimmerman was no longer detained and was not in custody. The police spokesman said Zimmerman has been cooperating with police.

According to Lake Mary police Chief Steve Bracknell, Zimmerman’s wife Shellie Zimmerman called police and said that her husband had made threats to her family “with his hand on his gun.”

She also alleged that George Zimmerman had battered her father, David Dean, Bracknell said.

The police chief said about 3:30 p.m. Shellie Zimmerman and her father were consulting with their attorney to decide whether to give a sworn statement or press charges.

Hudson said the investigation is in its early stages, and it was unclear whether Zimmerman or anyone would be arrested. No significant injuries were suffered in the incident, Hudson said.
