George Zimmerman

Alleged iPad Smashing

Caught On Video

New footage has surfaced appearing to show the moment George Zimmerman "smashed" an iPad that may contain proof he punched his father-in-law during an alleged altercation last week.

The footage was captured on a home security system moments after the alleged altercation at the Florida rental home where George and Shellie Zimmerman had been living.

Shellie told a 911 operator George took a pocket knife to the iPad and then smashed it ... and the video appears to back up the story.

While you can't actually make out a pocket knife in the footage, it's obvious George is finagling with the device ... before he tosses it on the ground.

Shellie recovers the iPad moments later.

After the incident, Shellie turned the iPad over to cops -- and they're confident they can recover any footage that was stored in the device, but acknowledge it was pretty badly damaged.

As we previously reported, Shellie initially told the 911 operator George was threatening the family with a gun ... but she later recanted her story and police say they've seen no evidence George ever had a gun.

George may have scratched the IPad but he didn't opera to "smash" it. Toss it like a frisbee, yes, but smash, no. It appears to be in a case so it should have been OK, as it landed on grass. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

see the problem is that everyone who wants to say Zimmerman is doing something terrible overplays their hand. his wife said he used and gun and then recants. now you really can't trust anything she says.

Zimmerman's OWN lawyer, the skank that got him off after murdering that kid, said on CNN last nite that Zimmerman DID HAVE A GUN on him but that "he acted properly with it", that he just touched it to make sure it "hadn't moved" or some such bull****. The lawyer also said he wasn't representing Zimmerman for his divorce or any other trouble he gets in, only what is pertaining to the murder case. KMZ, why don't you have the lawyers statement on this post? Its completely relevant to the story.

If Zimmerman is wearing his gun, you would not be able to see it, becuz it would be underneath the big shirt he has on. Shellie said he "touched the area where he wears it", and his lawyer seemed to confirm this last nite, except the lawyer made it sound like he was just making sure the gun hadn't moved or some such bs. I don't know why the cops said he wasn't packing...I think ol Georgie boy has some staunch supporters in that police dept.

The guy is a ticking time bomb he already went off once when he killed that kid. Guilty or not guilty it was careless. Now he is going to be followed around for the rest of his life until he snaps, on top of that he is in the middle of a divorce which is going to just put him further over the edge emotionally. Where are all his supporters now?? Probably having second thoughts about his credibility all, karma is a B and he is getting his, hopefully he just doesn't take anyone else down with him.
