George Zimmerman stopped for speeding in Texas

 

FORNEY, Texas (AP) — Police in a Dallas suburb say they stopped George Zimmerman for speeding.

Forney police say Zimmerman was stopped Sunday while driving west on U.S. 80, about 20 miles east of Dallas. A Florida jury recently acquitted Zimmerman in the fatal shooting of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin.

A police dashcam video released Wednesday shows an officer speaking to Zimmerman and recognizing him.

The video shows the officer returning to his patrol car with Zimmerman's driver's license to check for outstanding warrants. The officer returned the license, instructed Zimmerman to slow down and released him with a warning.

City Manager Brian Brooks says police records don't show how fast Zimmerman was driving.

A spokesman for Zimmerman's legal team says he's baffled that a traffic stop would become national news.
