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.

“First same-sex divorce finalized in Colorado”


CBS NEWS

DENVER | Supporters of Colorado’s new civil unions law say a court ruling declaring a same-sex divorce final means gay couples married in other states can legally terminate their relationships in Colorado without uprooting their lives.

Juli Yim and Lorelei Jones wed in Massachusetts in 2009, where same-sex marriage is legal. Yim said that relationship went sour and she found a new partner in Colorado.

Colorado is one of several states that treat gay and straight couples the same in almost every respect through civil unions or domestic partnerships. Gay couples are not allowed to marry in Colorado, but can get divorced there under state statute.

Gay rights advocates said other states also grant divorces to gay couples who were married elsewhere, but some require in-state residency to dissolve the relationship. Gay-rights advocates contend the requirement is more than an inconvenience because it can put lives on hold for those who have moved to different states.

Denver lawyer Kyle Martelon said there is some confusion on how gay couples can get divorced, and the issues are different in other states.

“As U.S. exits Afghanistan, American soldiers still making ultimate sacrifice”


CBS NEWS

(CBS News) KILLEEN, TexasThe war in Afghanistan is winding down, but Americans are still fighting and dying there. Four were killed on the very day last month that the U.S. handed control of the country’s security to the Afghan army and police. Among them: Ember Alt.

Charles Alt was in Afghanistan working as a civilian contractor when he got the call about his daughter, 21-year-old Army Spc. Ember Alt. She was stationed in Afghanistan, too, just a couple of hours away from him.

“They took me to the mortuary, and I viewed the body, and I didn’t want to believe what I saw,” he remembers. “They told me she was killed from a rocket attack. … They told me she didn’t suffer at all, which was a big relief.”

Spc. Alt had worked as a mechanic at Bagram Air Base.

“She told me a couple of times that it is scary out there, but she also said she knew what her job was,” Charles Alt says. “And she had to do her job to the best of her ability.”

There was a special tribute to Alt by her fellow soldiers at Bagram before her father accompanied her home.

“Felt like the longest flight of my life,” he says. “But I am thankful that I was over there to be able to escort her home. To bring my little girl home.”
