George Zimmerman was reportedly stopped for speeding this past Sunday in Forney, Texas and released with a warning.  Zimmerman, 29, did admit to carrying a gun in his car’s glove compartment.

Zimmerman was driving a Honda pickup on Highway 80 in Forney located in the eastern part of Dallas.  He was stopped close to 1p.m. local time and apparently was going “nowhere in particular.” 

The neighborhood watchman was recently aquitted of manslaughter charges in Florida in the slaying of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin.  Immediately after the acquittal Zimmerman reportedly rescued a family trapped under an overturn SUV in his native Florida.

From dashcam recordings the officer apparently did not recognized Zimmerman until Zimmerman asked him if he recognized him from TV.
