(Newser) – The next phase of the George Zimmerman chronicles now hinges on a smashed iPad. Police investigating yesterday's domestic disturbance between Zimmerman and estranged wife Shellie say her iPad has video of their confrontation that could determine whether he (or she) faces any charges, reports the Orlando Sentinel. The problem is that the device is smashed into several pieces, and Shellie accuses George of breaking it on purpose. Still, police think they'll be able to retrieve enough to figure out what went on.

It turns out that yesterday's disturbance began over a disagreement over unspecified belongings at their home in Lake Mary, Fla., reports AP. Shellie has filed for divorce and moved out, but police say she returned with her father to collect some things. She has said she is not interested in pressing charges, but police will make the final call. George, meanwhile, told police that she pushed him during the incident.

Murderers, drug dealers, whores, and illegal immigrants are completely allowable in Florida, but to smash an I-phone, that will get you life.
