A report had been received that Zimmerman was involved in an altercation with another person and that there was a threat involved.
According to records, the home is owned by David and Machelle Dean. Apparently Dean is Zimmerman’s wife, Shellie’s, maiden name.
Zach Hudson, a spokesman for the Lake Mary police said that police are “trying to determine what exactly happened.”
Few details are currently available, but there is a live broadcast by Sky 6 over the scene of the incident.
ABC News is reporting that Zimmerman is being held at the residence of a relative, on suspicion of domestic battery of his estranged wife.
The incident comes just a few days after Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce.
Zimmerman was found not guilty of the second-degree murder of Trayvon Martin in July 2013.
