LAKE MARY, Fla. (AP) - Police investigating a domestic dispute between George Zimmerman and his estranged wife say video from Shellie Zimmerman's iPad may be crucial evidence in determining whether any charges are filed.

Lake Mary Police Department spokesman Zach Hudson said Tuesday that the iPad captured video of the dispute, but the mobile device was in pieces and needed to be examined in a lab.

Shellie Zimmerman called 911 on Monday, saying her estranged husband was threatening her and her father with a gun. She later changed her story and decided against pressing charges. No gun was ever found.

Zimmerman's attorney says his client did nothing wrong.

Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce last week. She and her husband separated a month after he was acquitted of fatally shooting Trayvon Martin.
