Detectives found George Anthony at the Hawaiian Inn Hotel in Daytona Beach at 2:30 a.m. ET Friday, said Jeff Williamson, a spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's department.
Brad Conway, the Anthonys' attorney, told CNN affiliate WFTV that Anthony was taken into custody under Florida's Baker Act, which allows the state to hold people involuntarily pending a psychiatric evaluation.
Anthony has been embroiled in a crime saga involving his daughter, Casey Anthony, and his 2-year-old granddaughter Caylee.
