George Zimmerman has a problem with obeying traffic laws. The former neighborhood watch volunteer was pulled over for speeding in Lake Mary, Florida, on Tuesday the second time he's committed this offense since he was acquitted of all charges in the killing of Trayvon Martin in July. He must pay a fine of $256.

Separately, Zimmerman's wife Shellie announced Thursday that she has filed for divorce. She told Good Morning America in an interview that her husband is selfish, reports the Associated Press. "I have a selfish husband and I think George is all about George," she said.

At 10:35 a.m. Tuesday, Zimmerman was caught driving 65 mph in a zone with a 45 mph speed limit, according to the Orlando Sentinel. In a video showing the stop, Zimmerman has trouble finding his registration to show the police officer, who does not make an issue of this. The cop then hands Zimmerman a ticket after checking his computer for warrants.

In August, Zimmerman was pulled over by police in Forney, Texas, for speeding on a highway and was carrying a gun in his glove compartment. Zimmerman was then cleared to go with a verbal warning.
