George Zimmerman, Armed and Speeding

George Zimmerman Stopped for Speeding, Has Gun

Police in Texas have pulled over George Zimmerman for speeding and then the man acquitted in one of America's most controversial trials in years alerted the officer that he had a gun in his glove compartment.

Zimmerman, who was acquitted by a Florida jury two weeks ago for the death of Trayvon Martin, was stopped at 12:47 p.m. on Sunday on Highway 80 by a Forney, Texas. In dash cam video obtained by ABC News the officer can be heard asking the former neighborhood watch captain, "Where you headed?" Zimmerman responded, "Nowhere in particular," and then asks the officer if he noticed the name of the driver's license.

The officer responded "What a coincidence," and later is heard telling Zimmerman that he can shut the glove compartment that was holding the firearm.
