Police in Lake Mary say Zimmerman was stopped and for going 60 mph in a 45 mph zone. He was given a citation for $256, CBS affiliate WKMG reports.

Zimmerman was previously pulled over in late July near Dallas, Texas, but was let go with a warning.

Earlier that month, the former neighborhood watch volunteer was acquitted of murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
