Trayvon Martin

ORLANDO (CBSMiami/AP) – George Zimmerman, the man acquitted of charges for the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, has been pulled over in a traffic stop for a third time since July.

Zimmerman was pulled over last month, a squad car video broadcast Thursday by Orlando Television station WOFL, by a state trooper along Interstate 95 in Florida’s Space Coast.

Zimmerman was pulled over because the tag cover and tints on the windows of his car were too dark.

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.
