The Associated Press has reported that George Zimmerman was pulled over for speeding in central Florida. He was ticketed Tuesday morning going 60 mph in a 45 mph zone.
On July 17, it was reported that Zimmerman rescued a family trapped in an overturned vehicle on a Florida highway. The crash victims told firefighters that “Georgia Zimmerman pulled me out.”
Another report surfaced at the end of August, according to TMZ, that he visited the gun manufacturing plant Kel-Tec Firearms in Cocoa, Florida to shop for a rifle. He received a tour of the facility by the owner’s son and posed for at least one picture with an employee.
George’s legal representatives were apparently unhappy with his decision to tour the facility and pose for pictures. Shawn Vincent, a spokesman for attorney Mark O’Mara, told Yahoo news:
“We certainly would not have advised him to go to the factory that made the gun that he used to shoot Trayvon Martin through the heart. That was not part of our public relations plan….
From that perspective, we are George’s legal representation, but I don’t think he takes our advice on how he lives his life or what factories he decides to tour. We represented him in court. We got the verdict that we believe is just, and the rest of George’s life is up to George.”
Some have suspected that after the gun manufacturing plant tour, Zimmerman has gone “rogue.”
George Zimmerman’s wife Shellie isn’t apparently happy with him either. She has been recently in the news after being sentenced to one year probation and 100 hours of community service for lying under oath.
In an interview with ABC News, she says that their marriage has experienced a significant amount of stress.
“We have pretty much lived like gypsies for the past year and a half. We’ve lived in a 20-foot trailer in the woods, scared every night that someone would go and find us and that it would be horrific,” she told Christi O’Connor. “I can’t tell you how many nights I’ve gone or laid awake at night just thinking that I wish to God the circumstances had been different.”
At the time of the killing of Trayvon Martin, Shellie wasn’t even staying at their house. She had gone to stay with her father because the two had argued.
Now she says their marriage is in trouble.
She told ABC News that she would have to “think about” whether she wants to continue their marriage.
Update: ABC News just reported that Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce today in Florida.
