George Zimmerman Pulled Over in Florida For Speeding; Didn't Have a Gun

George Zimmerman has apparently returned to Florida from his "Have Gun, Will Travel, Will Likely Shoot an Unarmed Black Kid and Then Totally Get Away With It" Tour to Texas because, is reporting that -- just like in Texas -- Zimmerman was pulled over for speeding.

According to Lake Mary police, Zimmerman was pulled over for going 60 in a 45 miles per hour zone on Tuesday.

Unlike his stop in Texas, George did not pull the Do you know who I am? routine.

Also, unlike his stop in Texas, he didn't have a gun with him in the car.

Also, he has a beard now.

George was pulled over on Rinehart Road. As you can see in the video captured by a chest-mounted camera on the police officer, Zimmerman said he didn't know he was speeding and that he was sorry.

Officer: Hello. Here's why I stopped you. It's for speeding.

Zimmerman: Sorry.

Officer: 60?

Zimmerman: I didn't know. Sorry.

Zimmerman was handed a $256 ticket before moseying on his way.

The Lake Mary police chief wanted to make it clear that Zimmerman wasn't targeted. The officer saw a car going over the speed limit and pulled it over.

So there you have it.
