An iPad that George Zimmerman’s wife used to record him during a confrontation is too badly damaged to quickly retrieve footage that Florida cops need before they decide whether to charge anyone, a police spokesman said Wednesday.

“It’s in really bad shape,” Lake Mary, Fla., Police public information officer Zach Hudson said, adding that it could be weeks or even months before images are recovered from the tablet.

“As it stands right now there will not be any charges any time soon without that iPad.”

Zimmerman, who was acquitted in July of second-degree murder in the Trayvon Martin shooting, admitted he destroyed the machine during a dispute that erupted Monday while he and estranged wife Shellie were removing their belongings from a home, Hudson said.
