If you thought George Zimmerman was going to trial again anytime soon, you'd better think again!!
Earlier this week police visited the home of George and his estranged wife Shellie after she called 911 and they reportedly kept him in "investigative custody" while trying to get to the bottom of a potential domestic dispute.
According to some sources, George threatened his wife and his father-in-law with a gun!
We're now learning the police aren't planning to charge George with any crimes, though, or at least not "anytime soon."
Thanks to a destroyed iPad — one that may have contained pertinent evidence — the cops say they don't have cause to charge George in connection with the alleged altercation. At least not until the data from the device can be recovered.
Lake Mary Police Public Information Officer Zach Hudson revealed:
“As it stands right now there will not be any charges anytime soon without that iPad, and that could be weeks, months away… At this point we’re doing everything humanly possible and investing as much as physically possible in order to get that video. And sooner or later we hope to have something, but at this point there’s definitely no guarantee… The only reason why you’re seeing this much attention is obviously who that person is, but the truth is if you yourself had a domestic [dispute] in your home, tonight we would be doing the exact same thing to get that information because that’s critical to the citizens of this city.”
Weeks or months away? Hopefully there are no further incidents in the meanwhile!
In case you haven't been keeping up, George Zimmerman originally found himself surrounded by controversy and drama when Trayvon Martin was tragically shot and killed last February.
Though the circumstances surrounding Trayvon's death were suspicious, George was acquitted on all charges relating to that shooting.
