Associated Press Release

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- George Zimmerman has been pulled over in a traffic stop for the third time since his acquittal in July of any crimes for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin.

Squad car video broadcast Thursday by Orlando television station WOFL (http://bit.ly/1eKpoTf ) shows Zimmerman being pulled over last month by a state trooper along Interstate 95 in Florida's Space Coast.

The trooper tells Zimmerman he was pulled over because the tag cover and windows on his car were too darkly tinted.

Zimmerman was let off with a warning.

Zimmerman was acquitted in July of any crime for fatally shooting the Miami teen. His acquittal led to protests nationwide.

Since the trial, Zimmerman has been pulled over twice for speeding.

He was given a warning in Texas and issued a ticket in an Orlando suburb.


Associated Press Release

LAKE MARY, Fla. (AP) -- Whether they think he got away with murdering 17-year-old Trayvon Martin or was just a neighborhood watch volunteer "standing his ground," many Americans can't seem to get enough of George Zimmerman. And he can't seem to stop giving it to them.

So it's hardly surprising that everything Zimmerman does produces a Twitterverse explosion and spins into heavy news coverage. Comedian Deon Cole nailed it when he said being found not guilty doesn't make Zimmerman a free man.

He certainly hasn't been free from the spotlight. He's been stopped for speeding and toured the factory where the pistol from the shooting was made. This week, Zimmerman was handcuffed in the street after an alleged scuffle with his estranged wife and father-in-law.

Crisis management expert Mark McClennan calls the pattern of fame a two-way street.
