George Zimmerman was taken into police custody on Monday after a domestic dispute.

According to law enforcement, Zimmerman had an “altercation” with estranged wife Shellie, who recently filed for divorce, as well as with her father.

Shellie called 911 and initially claimed Zimmerman threateningly put his hand on his gun, and that she and her dad were afraid “he’s gonna shoot us.”

She added that he “punched my dad in the nose” and “smashed” her iPad.

“I don’t know he’s capable of,” said Shellie.

Later, however, Shellie said she did not actually see his gun.

She and her dad also declined to press charges.

Because of Shellie’s turnaround, Zimmerman will not be arrested, say the police.

As you’ll recall, Zimmerman’s trial and acquittal on charges relating to the shooting death of Trayvon Martin riveted the country for much of the summer.
