(MIAMI) — George Zimmerman’s lawyer said Tuesday he will no longer represent the man acquitted of murder in the death of teenager Trayvon Martin.

The announcement came one day after Zimmerman’s wife, Shellie, called police to say that Zimmerman had assaulted her father and threatened her, leaving her “very, very scared.” Shellie Zimmerman recently filed papers seeking a divorce from Zimmerman.

A spokesman for Mark O’Mara, who succeeded in winning an acquittal for Zimmerman in the racially charged Trayvon Martin murder trial, said O’Mara will not represent Zimmerman in any future litigation including his divorce and any possible charges resulting from the Monday incident involving his wife and father-in-law.

O’Mara will still be Zimmerman’s lawyer in a defamation suit pending against NBC.

Zimmerman’s wife said that her husband has been acting as if he’s “invincible” since his acquittal in July.

Zimmerman has twice been caught speeding since the end of his murder trial and made a controversial visit to the Kel Tec gun factory.
