LAKE MARY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

A policereport released Wednesday afternoon reveals that George Zimmerman had a weaponat the home he once shared with his estranged-wife when she called 911.

ShellieZimmerman called police Monday and told the dispatcher that George threatened touse a firearm against her and her father. 

According tothe police report there was a woman in the car with Zimmerman when they arrivedand took him into custody.

She toldthem, "There were guns in the vehicle but they had concealed weapons permitsfor the guns." 

Police saidthey did not find a gun on Zimmerman's person and they had no probable cause tosearch his vehicle. 

Departmentspokesman Zach Hudson told reporters Wednesday it could be weeks ormonths before video taken during the altercation is retrieved from a smashediPad.

"At thispoint we do not have the tools available to effectively look at the video onthe iPad," Hudson said.

Officers hopethat the video will clarify a he-said-she-said situation in which Shellie saysGeorge roughed up her, and George says Shellie hit him in the back with theiPad.

Thefourteen-page report suggests both Zimmermans were concerned about who wastaking what from the house.

Police reportthat Shellie said she was outside when she "heard her father screaming," sheran into the garage, and her father said "George hit him in the face."

George claimsthe father "threw his glasses down and charged at him" and Shellie later"smacked him several times on the back with the iPad.

Police saidsurveillance video shows Zimmerman smashing the iPad.

In thereport, Shellie tells officers that after George smashed the device he "tookout a knife and pried it open."

No chargeshave been filed in the case so far.  Police consider the altercation apossible case of domestic battery and Hudson said if a crime is committedZimmerman could be accused of destroying evidence.

ShellieZimmerman's father is not a subject of the investigation.
