Zimmerman Briefly Detained, Still A Gun-Toting Creep

Abby Zimet

Well that was quick. George Zimmerman was taken into custody today for possible "domestic battery" after allegedly threatening his about-to-be-ex-wife with his favorite go-to accessory, a gun, and punching out her father, even though neither was wearing a hoodie at the time. Later, she declined to press charges; there are conflicting reports on whether or not he had a gun and, if he did, what happened to it. We are still taking bets on how long it takes for George's next rage-fueled, likely-armed run-in with the law on his inevitable way to a richly deserved bad end.
