George Zimmerman made news again for more controversial behavior . His truck was stopped in Texas by a police officer for speeding, and almost the first thing out of Zimmerman’s mouth was that he had a gun and his glovebox door was open with the gun in plain sight of the officer. But, instead of turning into another arrest for Zimmerman, where the police officer might have mistaken the situation for threatening, the police officer seemed impressed by Zimmerman’s notoriety and said, “Wow!” when he found out who he was talking to. But, the police officer let Zimmerman go with a warning to take it easy with speeding and not to play with his gun.
Zimmerman was driving a 1988 Honda truck with Florida plates, and this marks second time in several days when Zimmerman has made some news for himself since he was acquitted by a Florida jury for the shooting deathof a teenager who was walking home from a 7-11 store who was staying as a guest in the same gated community that Zimmerman lived in.
