UPDATE: 3:35 PM EST

Here is the police report from George Zimmerman's run in with police on Sunday, via CBS reporter J.D. Miles:

-----

Look who's coming out of hiding again...and running into yet another encounter with the law.

George Zimmerman was stopped in Forney, Texas on Sunday for speeding, telling police that he was "headed nowhere in particular" when asked where he was going in such a hurry.

And according to TMZ, the former neighborhood watch volunteer who shot Trayvon Martin to death was already packing heat...just weeks after his highly publicized trial.

[Zimmerman] informed them he had a firearm in his glove compartment. Zimmerman was given a warning, after cops determined he was free of warrants. He was sent on his way with a polite goodbye, "Have a safe trip."

He also asked the police officers:

"Do you recognize me from TV?"

Given a warning? "Have a safe trip?" How does this guy get away with so much?

Many people are just given warnings when pulled over for speeding.

Exactly. I get pulled over about once every 2 years and rarely get a ticket.

 I've received both warnings and speeding tickets. Warnings in my younger cuter years:)

Having a gun in his car probably wasn't illegal in Texas.  I don't have to like that he got away with murder to recognize that until he is a felon or determined to be mentally ill he has a right to own a gun.

 I want to know why I have never made the news or the pages of cafemom for this?  I have received multiple warnings over the years and some of those times I have also been armed.  I want my 15 minutes of fame dammit.

I wish he would stay out of the news. He asked them "do you recognize me from TV?" What an arrogant POS. The man is crazy, and will eventually do something stupid again.

 Where is the proof that he asked them if they recognized him from tv?

well, it appears he sees himself as some sort of comic superhero.  If I had to pick which one it would be Deputy Dog.
