LAKE MARY, Fla. (AP) -- Police say George Zimmerman's estranged wife doesn't want to press charges against her husband despite calling 911 and saying he threatened her and her father.

Monday's uproar at a home in an Orlando suburb is the latest in a string of incidents in which Zimmerman has landed in the news since his acquittal in July of all charges for fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

On the 911 call, Shellie Zimmerman is sobbing and repeating "Oh my God" as she talks to a police dispatcher. She yells at her father to get inside the house, saying Zimmerman may start shooting at them.

But as police pressed her for information, and after talking to her attorney, she declined to press charges.

Zimmerman's attorney says his client didn't threaten anyone with a gun.
