Description: George Zimmerman, the Florida man who was acquitted of murder in the shooting of an unarmed teenager in 2012, was being questioned by authorities over a possible domestic violence incident, a police spokesman said on Monday.
Lake Mary, Florida, police spokesman Zach Hudson said police "were trying to figure out exactly what happened" in the incident and that a gun was present.
Hudson said Zimmerman was being questioned by police but did not provide any additional details.
Zimmerman was acquitted on July 13 of murdering 17-year-old Trayvon Martin as he walked back to the townhouse where he was staying after buying snacks at a nearby convenience store. The shooting and trial in the central Florida town of Sanford captivated and polarized the U.S. public on issues of race, gun laws and self-defense laws.
