George Zimmerman Smashed Wife’s iPad Containing Video of Dispute

George Zimmerman Smashed Wife’s iPad Containing Video of Dispute

George Zimmerman doesn’t want anyone to know what happened between him, his wife and her parents during a domestic dispute on Monday. The Associated Press reports that Zimmerman tried to destroy an iPad that his wife used to record the dispute, breaking the device into several pieces. (According to the transcript of the 911 call his wife placed, he used a pocket knife.) Police are now trying to determine whether the footage can be salvaged.

Shellie Zimmerman is seeking divorce from her husband, citing his newfound recklessness following his July acquittal in the murder of Trayvon Martin. She originally claimed that Zimmerman had brandished a gun during the dispute on Monday, but later recanted when police failed to turn up a weapon, and eventually declined to press charges against her husband—making her broken iPad’s video evidence, if it can be recovered, that much more important in determining what happened.

George Zimmerman's Lawyer Quits Following Domestic Incident

George Zimmerman's Lawyer Quits Following Domestic Incident

George Zimmerman's attorney is quitting on him, kind of.

Mark O'Mara, who helped successfully defend Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin murder case, said today that he will not represent Zimmerman in his upcoming divorce or for any charges stemming from a domestic dispute with his estranged wife and father-in-law yesterday. ABC reports that O'Mara "appeared to struggle with his anger at his client during Monday's incident in which he went to Zimmerman's house while police were still there." At a press conference following the argument, O'Mara responded tersely to a question asking if he had any advice for Zimmerman. "Pay me," he said.

O'Mara isn't severing all of his ties with his reviled client, of course, because there's still some money to be squeezed from the circus show that is George Zimmerman's life. The lawyer, who now moonlights as a CNN legal analyst, will still serve as Zimmerman's counsel in a defamation suit against NBC.
