Police say not enough evidence to prosecute George Zimmerman in domestic dispute

Lake Mary police on Thursday said they could not salvage video from an iPad George Zimmerman damaged during a dispute with his estranged wife and thus he will face no domestic violence charges.

Zimmerman, 30, was acquitted in July in the death of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager, whom he shot in Sanford last year. That verdict set off protest marches across the country.

Zimmerman, his estranged wife, Shellie, and her father, David Dean, got into an altercation Sept. 9, at the home the couple formerly shared in Lake Mary. Shellie called 911, reporting that Zimmerman had threatened them with a gun.

Shellie Zimmerman had used her iPad to record the altercation, but George Zimmerman pried it open, tore it apart and threw it on the ground.
