George Zimmerman always ends up on the right side of the law it seems.
He was pulled over by Texas police officers and managed to survive the ordeal, which is more than we can say about black men who deal with Zimmerman or the police.
Of course he had a gun.
And of course he asked the officers if they recognized him:
According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas.
The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman, who was driving a Honda pickup. Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station. The officer then told Zimmerman he could go on his way if he had no criminal issues.
The incident was captured on the officer’s dashcam.
At some point during the traffic stop, Zimmerman asked the officer whether he recognized him from television and the officer said he did not, the station reports.
When asked where he was going, the 29-year-old Zimmerman reportedly told the officer, no place in particular. He was released on a warning.
