George Zimmerman


Stopped By Cops, Packing Heat

7/31/2013 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1:55 PM PT --
We've obtained the police dashcam video of the stop ... in which George Zimmerman informs the cop he has a firearm in his glove box.

Both Zimmerman and the officer are very polite to each other during the stop.

Zimmerman remains in his vehicle during the entire incident.


George Zimmerman
is still armed and theoretically dangerous ... he was stopped by cops for speeding and revealed he had a gun in his glove compartment.

Zimmerman was speeding in Forney, Texas on Sunday, just after noon, when he was stopped by police.  Zimmerman told cops he was headed "nowhere in particular," and informed them he had a firearm in his glove compartment.

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.

BTW ... law enforcement tells TMZ ... he was NOT wearing a disguise ... it was full blown George Zimmerman.

"A good amount of police are racist"? So are a good amount of blacks. What's your point?

Great, so now the poor guy has to trade in his car as every idiot now knows what it looks like and has a rough idea of where he is. I guess Texas is a good place for him to be as they don't mess around. Hope he can find a nice place to live and just be left alone. I honestly do think he should be allowed to be a highway patrol or cop. He helped those people in their car crash and he's honest and seems to care (even with all the crap that's happened to him.) Go George, find a nice place to live and do your thing. Also, thank you Texas Highway patrolman for not being an attention seeking drama queen.

So TMZ runs a photo of his vehicle, mentions he has a gun, and then follows it immediately below by photos of stars in support of Martin. Oh, you don't suppose TMZ has an agenda, do you?

Way to go TMZ, you just gave away his location. If any violence happens the blood is on your hands. I don't know how you live with yourself Harvey.

Was he given a ticket for speeding or a fee pass? With regard to carrying, he is allowed and he did right by reporting. However, it is only a matter of time before he is behind bars. He will pull that gun on someone and try that self defense BS to no avail. Idiots lack basic common sense, he should consider that given the outrage of the trial, right wrong or indifferent the next time he will go down. OJ much?
