Zimmerman Stopped for Speeding

FORNEY, Texas (AP) --
   Police in a Dallas suburb say they stopped George Zimmerman for speeding.
   Forney police say Zimmerman was stopped Sunday while driving west on U.S. 80, about 20 miles east of Dallas. A Florida jury recently acquitted Zimmerman in the fatal shooting of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin.
   A police dashcam video released Wednesday shows an officer speaking to Zimmerman and recognizing him.
   The video shows the officer asking Zimmerman to close his glove compartment and saying, "Don't play with your firearm." The officer returned to his patrol car with Zimmerman's driver's license to check for outstanding warrants. He later returned the license, instructed Zimmerman to slow down and released him with a warning.
   A spokesman for Zimmerman's legal team says he's baffled that a traffic stop would become national news.
