George Zimmerman, the man acquitted in the high-profile 2012 shooting of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, will not be charged for a domestic dispute last month with his estranged wife, police said Wednesday.

Lake Mary Officer Zach Hudson said investigators decided the dispute in Florida did not rise to a criminal level, the Associated Press reports.

Days after wife Shellie Zimmerman filed for a divorce, she called police to her father’s home following a dispute there with her husband. George Zimmerman was briefly questioned at the location.

George Zimmerman was acquitted of murder chargers earlier this year in the Martin shooting, which sparked national debate on race, guns and self-defense laws.
