"Anytime his life intersects with anyone now, somehow that's news," Vincent said. "How many people, when they get a warning, become a national headline?"

Vincent would not discuss what Zimmerman was doing in Texas or say anything about Zimmerman's current location, citing safety concerns.

Zimmerman's acquittal on July 13 prompted rallies nationwide calling for a civil rights probe and federal charges against him.

Last year's shooting of Martin, an unarmed black teen, initiated a national dialogue about equal justice, racial profiling, gun control and self-defense laws.

Protesters nationwide lashed out against police in Sanford, Fla., as it took 44 days for Zimmerman to be arrested. Many, including Martin's parents, said Zimmerman had racially profiled the 17-year-old. Zimmerman identifies himself as Hispanic.

The only other time Zimmerman has been seen in public since his acquittal was when he helped rescue four people from an overturned vehicle following a roadway accident in suburban Orlando.
