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.

Dr. Drew on CNN beat you guys to the punch last night. Stop reporting and following ignorant rappers and Beiber's wanna-be friends and get back to what you use to do best.

Why else would he smash the iPad if there isn't video of him making threats? Sure hope they can recover the files!

I am a victim of domestic violence. People like Zimmerman's wife make a mockery for the issue and victims. The women clearly needs to grow a pair and throw this sorry ass in jail and let him rot. Its clear he has little man anger issues, get his sorry ass off the streets so he can be someone else's beotch..

this is what is bothering me on any of these reports on George Zimmerman- it would never make news if not for the trial....and as much as the masses may not like it, he was found not guilty...and after that he should be allowed to go about his life without being followed by the media...otherwise America is a land of "Guilty until proven innocent and even then we will trash you forever because everyone but the court system still thinks you are guilty"...and then we can just bring back public stockades and accusing people of witch craft, as that ended really well for lots of people didn't it?

He didn't smash anything! It looks like they were fighting over who got it or something and he got pissed so he tossed it on the ground. And you can't tell me that if your going through a bitter divorce your not going to be angry! Lay off the man.

And the reason this man feels like he can get away with bad behavior is in due thanks to the jurors in Florida! Now I just hope he stays in Florida and wrecks havoc on the state that let him off. Sorry Florida,

Emotions can run high in any divorce situation. Why is this any different ? I think people are jumping to conclusions thinking the ipad contains damning evidence.
