This isn’t the first time Mr. Zimmerman crossed paths with police since his famous trial on murder charges for the 17-year-old Trayvon. He was also stopped by police near Dallas on July 28 for a driving infraction. Then, he was told to slow down and given just a warning.

The July incident occurred just days after he was acquitted on murder charges in the shooting death of Trayvon.
