Over the summer, authorities were called to a domestic dispute involving Zimmerman and his wife, Shellie Zimmerman, shortly after she filed for divorce.

Shellie Zimmerman accused her estranged husband of punching her father and threatening them at the father’s home on Ridgewood Road.

In the end, no charges were filed against Zimmerman in the case.

Zimmerman was also accused by his wife’s mother of stealing property from her Lake Mary home, where Zimmerman had been staying.

Police are reviewing the case to determine if it will be a civil or criminal matter.

Zimmerman was also pulled over twice for speeding, once in Texas where he was let off with a warning and another time in Lake Mary, where he was issued a $256 ticket.

And he drew controversy for visiting the Kel-Tec gun manufacturing company in Cocoa, where he toured the facility and posed for a photo with a worker at the plant.
