Police in Fort Lauderdale, FL, arrested 2 pastors and a 90-year-old man for violating a new public ordinance against public food sharing. They were feeding the homeless at the time.

Arnold Abbot, age 90, told reporters he has been feeding the homeless for over 20 years. When the police approached him, they apparently yelled:

Drop that plate right now!

The 3 men plan to sue the city, and Abbot said that his arrest won’t stop him from feeding the homeless in the future.
