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.
