George Zimmerman Gets Another Speeding Ticket

Former neighborhood “watchman” George Zimmerman was pulled over for speeding in Central Florida Tuesday, roughly a month after being stopped near Dallas for the same violation. No word yet on whether he was carrying a firearm this time around.

Zimmerman was left with a warning in the Texas incident, but police in Lake Mary, a suburban city in Seminole County, issued Zimmerman a $256 fine for going 60 in a 45 mph zone on Rinehart Road.

Incidentally, the traffic violation occurred less than 3 miles from where Zimmerman had shot Trayvon Martin on February 26, 2012. Zimmerman’s lawyers have claimed that he’s been trying to keep a low profile, though the gunman was also recently involved in the rescue of a family of four, after their SUV flipped over near Sanford, Florida. This good deed was met with a lot of media attention regardless.

Zimmerman has been a very polarizing character after his recent acquittal for the shooting death of 17-year-old Martin, and has been understandably trying to remain covert. One would think that excessive speeding and the visiting of the manufacturing facility of the gun used in the Martin case might not be the best ideas.

    I think it is terrible that you used the words GUNNED DOWN when he was found not guilty by a jury. It was SELF DEFENSE by law. So you are anti-american to say Gunned Down. You are SO BAISED, YOU SHOULD NOT BE REPORTING NEWS STORIES.

      He was gunned down, what do you expect him to say? He’s going to get his like OJ, Eventually the law caught up with OJ, Martin will be the same way. In the slammer where he belongs.
