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.

To whatever police officer leaked this to the press:

Congratulations, you just put someone's life in danger by giving his location and what his truck looks like. Disgusting.

I read the Black Panthers offered a huge reward to the person that kills George. He needed that gun in the glove compartment. Would the TMZ staff just lie down and allow a 6 ft tall person face pump them and slam their head into the sidewalk after yelling for help and no one coming? A witness saw Trayvon doing this to George. He was injured. What don't you people understand about this case??????

No crime committed! He was stopped for speeding, made the officer aware that he has a registered weapon in his vehicle and the office chose not to cite him and sent him on his way. What is the big deal?

It's funny how there have been two sightings recently of this clown and not one picture to prove it. In this day an age, it he had actually rescued someone from a car wreck, his picture would have been snapped by someone's cell phone. And now we are supposed to beleive he's riding through Texas and once again no picture to prove it. PLEASE! HE WILL GET HIS ONE DAY!

Going to find out who in that agency released the pic and or video. Whoever releases it at a minimum should be fired. What in the hell is wrong with people? Pulls a guys over (bet he knew who he was the whole time) just to get him on video and then tries to get himself famous. The guy can carry a gun and it is perfectly legal. He is a PROVEN innocent man. That is why everybody hates you f#cking cops. Most I know were nobodys that got into the police business so they could feel like big shots. Half of our cops in our City I remember from high school and they WERE nobody losers like they still are. You have earned the term PIGS back!
