Video shows George Zimmerman being detained by police

TAMPA (FOX 13) -

There is new video of George Zimmerman being detained by police. The run-in comes following a domestic dispute with his wife Shellie on Monday.

"He's in his car and he continually has his hand on his gun and he keeps saying step closer," Shellie Zimmerman said in a 911 call.

But new information reveals that may not have been the case exactly. Lake Mary Police now say a gun was likely never involved in the couple's spat.

"Shellie Zimmerman and Shellie's father never saw a weapon. Neither did four other people in front yard when this all happened," said Zach Hudson with Lake Mary Police.

Zimmerman's attorney says Shellie stopped by the Lake Mary house Monday to get her things after her divorce filing last week. But she says the situation spiraled out of control, even claiming George punched her father, though police say he had no visible injuries.

Separating fact from fiction will be up to investigators, and they say an iPad will be a key piece of evidence moving forward.

"As it stands right now, we have an iPad in our possession. That iPad has video footage on it what was going on inside that household," Hudson said.

The problem, though, is that it was apparently busted during the altercation. It's been sent to the Seminole County Sheriff's office to see if they can retrieve the footage.

It's pivotal evidence in determining who might be charged.

"We want to get all the info and footage off that iPad to have a clear picture of what was going on in that house," Hudson said.

So far, no charges have been filed against either.
