It just keeps gettin’ better and better:
George Zimmerman, the former Florida neighborhood watch leader cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was pulled over for speeding in North Texas on Sunday, CBS DFW reports.
According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas.
The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman, who was driving a Honda pickup. Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station. The officer then told Zimmerman he could go on his way if he had no criminal issues.
The incident was captured on the officer’s dashcam.
At some point during the traffic stop, Zimmerman asked the officer whether he recognized him from television and the officer said he did not, the station reports.
When asked where he was going, the 29-year-old Zimmerman reportedly told the officer, no place in particular. He was released on a warning.
I’m gonna make a prediction right now and say that the video of this incident will soon be a viral sensation on YouTube. I am also gonna predict that certain bloviating gasbags will lead their shows with this story tonight.
What I want to know is how he got out of a ticket. I’m guessing the cop recognized him after all.
