George Zimmerman, was pulled over in Texas on Sunday by the Texas State Police. And according to the report, he told the officer he was armed and his gun was in the glove compartment.
The 29-year-old was stopped for speeding and alerted the officer that he was carrying a concealed weapon. The officer told him to put it in his glove compartment. Zimmerman complied and then asked the officer if he recognized him from television. The officer did not, and let Zimmerman go because he didn’t have any major offenses on his record.
When asked where he was headed, Zimmerman replied “no where in particular.”
Zimmerman was given a warning, after cops determined he was free of warrants. He was sent on his way with a polite goodbye, “Have a safe trip.” The stop lasted around 5 minutes.
