Shellie is alleging that George shattered, into several pieces, an iPad used to record video of his outburst during Monday’s confrontation. Shellie is also alleging that George punched her father in the nose and threatened to shoot him and his wife.
In the released 911 call, Shellie tells a dispatcher that her husband was in his car raging, adding "he continually has his hand on his gun and he says step closer…" When Shellie trails off the dispatcher asks "step closer and what?" to which Shellie responds "a step closer and he'd shoot us."
During a police press conference, Lake Mary Police Spokesman Zach Hudson said:
”As of right now we’re waiting on that iPad as the last piece of the puzzle so we can make that decision.”
Police believe the iPad captured video of Monday’s dispute at the Lake Mary house where Zimmerman was living, but the former neighborhood watch volunteer smashed it to pieces and it needs to be examined in a police crime lab. The result from the lab is crucial evidence in determining whether charges will be filed.
Since George’s July 13 not-guilty acquittal of shooting and killing 17-year-old, Trayvon Martin, he has been in the headlines several times. In late July, he reportedly helped a family escape from an overturned SUV. He has been pulled over twice for traffic violations. The first time, he was given a verbal warning for a traffic violation in Texas and reportedly told officers he had a firearm in his glove compartment. The second time was in Florida, as recent as last week, when he was issued a $256 ticket for speeding.
