(VIDEO) Zimmerman pulled over in Texas for speeding, given warning – Has Gun in Glovebox
George Zimmerman — who was acquitted earlier this month on murder charges tied to Trayvon Martin’s death — was stopped this weekend for speeding in northern Texas, according to police.
The officer asked him where he was going and he said “nowhere in particular” and asked the officer “you know who I am?”
Zimmerman was apparently traveling with a gun when he was pulled over. Dashcam video released by Forney, Texas, police shows him and a police officer talking briefly before the officer tells him to shut his glove compartment
“Don’t play with your firearm, OK?” the officer says.
The Forney police officer ultimately sends Zimmerman off with a verbal warning to “slow down.”
In a tweet, Zimmerman’s defense team said Wednesday that they would protect his privacy and wouldn’t make any comments on their client’s whereabouts “for his safety.”
