• Incident report on Zimmerman domestic dispute released


    SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. - The Lake Mary Police Department held a news conference Wednesday about the domestic incident between George Zimmerman and his wife, Shellie Zimmerman.     

    Police released the incident report Wednesday afternoon.

    Police said that no domestic violence charges will be filed against George or Shellie Zimmerman anytime soon, if ever. They said the iPad evidence was nearly destroyed.

    "The iPad is in really bad shape. Don't have tools to look at video on the iPad. It could take months or weeks to get video off iPad," said Zach Hudson of the Lake Mary Police Department.

    The smashed iPad could hold clues into what really happened during the Zimmermans' domestic dispute, but police say they may never know.

    According to a newly released police report, on Monday, Shellie Zimmerman and her father, David Dean, went to their Lake Mary home on Ridgewood Road to pick up belongings agreed upon during the split from her husband.

    George Zimmerman reportedly came to the residence and snapped pictures before heading to the garage.

    According to George Zimmerman, his father-in-law suddenly "threw his glasses on the down and charged him."

    Dean told police that Zimmerman injured him, as documented in an evidence photo.

    "As it stands now we don't see a crime," said Hudson.

    According to the report, while filming the aftermath with the iPad, Shellie Zimmerman, allegedly hit her husband with it.

    Home surveillance video caught George Zimmerman destroying it.

    However, police said if there's no video, there are no charges.

    "Without additional footage, there is no way we can come to that conclusion," Hudson said.

    No injuries were reported, and no one is pressing charges, police said.

    While there, all parties signed a document expressing their wish not to prosecute, though domestic-battery charges could still be filed against either George or Shellie Zimmerman, police said.

    In the state of Florida, authorities have the right to prosecute if they believe married parties got physical.
