Reports are coming out that George Zimmerman was stopped by local Florida police for speeding this week. This would be his second speeding infraction since he was acquitted of killing teen Trayvon Martin.
Zimmerman, 29, was stopped and ticketed in Lake Mary, Florida for driving 15 miles over the 45 mph speed limit. The Peruvian-American will have to pay a $256 fine and get three violation points against his driver’s license.
In late July Zimmerman was stopped for speeding in Forney, Texas and released with a warning. During that traffic stop he admitted to carrying a gun in the car’s glove compartment and “going nowhere in particular.”
The Sanford, Florida neighborhood watchman was acquitted of manslaughter on July 13 for the shooting death of the unarmed African-American teen. Immediately after the acquittal Zimmerman reportedly rescued a family trapped under an overturn SUV in his native Florida.
Clearly Zimmerman who was also photographed at a gun shop last month is having a hard time staying out of the limelight. This in spite of publicly stating he fears for his life.
Martin was 17-years-old when he was shot and killed near his father’s home. The February 26, 2012 incident sparked outrage across the country due to the fact Martin was not armed at the time of his death and thought to have been racially-profiled by Zimmerman who maintains he was acting in self-defense.
