SANFORD, Fla. -

A Lake Mary police spokesman says no criminal charges will be filed against George Zimmerman stemming from a dispute last month with his estranged wife.

Officer Zach Hudson said Wednesday that investigators had decided the dispute didn't rise to criminal charges.

The dispute took place last month, just days after Shellie Zimmerman filed divorce papers. Shellie Zimmerman said in the divorce papers that she had separated from her husband in August, a month after he was acquitted in the 2012 fatal shooting death of unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin.

The dispute took place at a home where the Zimmermans had lived before they were separated. The Lake Mary home is owned by Shellie Zimmerman's parents.
