LAKE MARY, Fla. (AP) - Police in Florida said the estranged wife of George Zimmerman has changed her account of what happened today -- so they haven't filed domestic violence charges against Zimmerman.

Shellie Zimmerman was sobbing when she called 911 to report that her husband was threatening her with a gun and that he had punched her father in the nose. But hours later, police said, she told them she never saw a gun.

Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce last week.

George Zimmerman's attorney said the dispute was the result of heightened emotions from their ongoing divorce. He says there may be have been some "pushing and touching" but George Zimmerman never punched his father-in-law.
