Police issued George Zimmerman a speeding ticket in Lake Mary, Fla., on Tuesday.

The former Neighborhood Watch volunteer, acquitted of murder in July for the shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin, was driving 60 mph in a 45 mph zone Tuesday morning.

Lake Mary Police released a video of Zimmerman being pulled over by Officer Jason McDaniel, who was wearing a camera.

The Orlando Sentinel reported Zimmerman faces a fine of $256 for the traffic violation. This was the second time Zimmerman had been pulled over for speeding since his July 13 murder acquittal. Zimmerman was stopped by Texas authorities in Forney on July 28 in a routine traffic stop. He told the officer he had a gun on him, which is legal in Texas, and he has a conceal carry permit in Florida. He did not get a ticket.

At the Lake Mary stop on Tuesday, Zimmerman did not report that he was armed.

Four days after a six-woman jury cleared Zimmerman of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges, he reportedly helped rescue a family from an overturned SUV in Florida during an auto accident.

Zimmerman's wife Shellie pleaded guilty Aug. 28 to a misdemeanor charge of perjury. Prosecutors involved in George Zimmerman's murder trial said that Shellie Zimmerman lied when she told the court during an April 2012 bond hearing for her husband that the family was indigent.

The Zimmermans had about $135,000 raised for his defense. Recorded jailhouse phone calls between the couple revealed the two spoke in code about their finances.

Shellie Zimmerman was placed on probation for one year, must perform 100 hours of community service and pay court costs.
