(CBS/AP) - Police in Lake Mary, Fla., say they do not expect charges to be filed in the domestic dispute between George Zimmerman and his estranged wife, in part because investigators do not have the tools to extract a video of the alleged incident from Shellie Zimmerman's damaged iPad.
Spokesman Zach Hudson said at a news conference Wednesday that an iPad used by Shellie Zimmerman to record an argument with her estranged husband is in "bad shape," and that it could take investigators weeks or months to analyze the video.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, a home security camera captured George Zimmerman damaged the iPad during the couple's argument. The police report on the incident states that Shellie Zimmerman claimed her husband smashed her iPad, pried it open with a knife and threw it on the ground.
Shellie Zimmerman called 911 on Sept. 9 and told the operator that her husband was threatening her and her father, David Dean, with a gun. Shellie had filed for divorce the previous week. The Sentinel reports that the couple began arguing while dividing their possessions.
According to the Sentinel, police briefly detained Zimmerman but released him after determining he did not have a gun.
