George Zimmerman had another brush with the law over the weekend, this time for a minor offense. An officer in Forney, Texas, pulled him over for speeding but ultimately let him go with a warning, reports TMZ. The most interesting tidbit is that during the stop, Zimmerman revealed that he had a gun in his glove compartment. Asked where he was going, Zimmerman replied, "Nowhere in particular."

When the officer questioned the reply, Zimmerman said, "You didn't see my name?" And the officer said, "Wow, what a coincidence," reports inForney.com. After Zimmerman's warrant check came back clean, he was let go with this warning: "Just take it easy, go ahead and shut your glove compartment, and don't play with your firearm, OK?" Words to live by. (Maybe he bought the gun with this money?)
