Video: George Zimmerman pulled over in Texas

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

George Zimmerman was pulled over for speeding in Texas on Sunday, and told the officer he had a gun in his glove box.

He got a warning about speeding from the officer, and went on his way.

The video does not show Zimmerman; he never gets out of the truck and the windows are heavily tinted.

(You can watch the entire video in the player above.)

He was pulled over in Forney, Texas, along U.S. Highway 80, about 20 miles east of Dallas.

The officer asks Zimmerman where he is headed, and he says "nowhere in particular."

The officer asks why he says that, and Zimmerman responds "you didn't see my name?"

"Huh?" the officer asks.

There is a pause, then the officer says "what a coincidence."

"Are you clear of warrants?" the officer asks.

"Absolutely," Zimmerman responds.

The officer runs his information, determines he is free of warrants and lets him off with a warning.

"Have a safe trip," the officer says.

The stop lasted just over five minutes.

Zimmerman and his family have been in hiding since he was acquitted on July 13 of charges he shot and killed Trayvon Martin.

According to TMZ, Zimmerman was not disguised in any way.
