George Zimmerman was pulled over for speeding in Texas, saying he was armed and going 'nowhere in particular.' The officer let Zimmerman off with only a warning for his driving.
George Zimmerman can't stay out of the news – or, perhaps, the news can't stay away from him.
Police in the Dallas suburb of Forney, Texas, say they stopped George Zimmerman for speeding at about 1 p.m. on Sunday on US Highway 80.
Mr. Zimmerman told the policeman he was armed, according to a report by a local CBS station, and the officer told him to put the weapon in the glove compartment, which he did.
A police dashcam video released Wednesday shows the officer speaking to Zimmerman and not immediately recognizing him. The officer asked where Zimmerman was headed, and Zimmerman responded: "Nowhere in particular," according to the CBS report. When the officer questioned him further, Zimmerman said: "You didn't see my name?"
"What a coincidence," the office responded.
The video shows the officer returning to his patrol car with Zimmerman's driver's license to check for outstanding warrants. The officer returned the license, instructed Zimmerman to slow down, and released him with a warning.
