George Zimmerman stopped for speeding again

LAKE MARY, Fla. —

George Zimmerman has once again been stopped for speeding, the second time since July that his vehicle has been pulled over for going too fast.

Zimmerman was acquitted in the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in mid-July.

This time, Zimmerman was given a speeding ticket; the first stop resulted in a warning.

Video from the traffic stop in Lake Mary, Fla., was recorded on a body camera being worn by the police officer who approached Zimmerman's SUV.

Authorities said Zimmerman was driving 60 mph in a 45 mph zone.

In the video, Zimmerman apologized for speeding and when asked for his registration, he hesitated and made sure it was OK to reach into his glove compartment.

"The traffic stop was made. The officer told him why he was being stopped, and Mr. Zimmerman said, 'No problem,'" said Zach Huson of the Lake Mary Police Department. "He provided his material, driver's license, registration and proof of insurance and the citation was issued and that was it."

The stop lasted about six minutes. During that time, Zimmerman never mentioned anything about being armed.

He was issued a $256 ticket.

Police redacted his address in their report, saying didn't want to make him a target, citing a court order that told law enforcement not to release Zimmerman's address during his trial.
