Florida Man Arrested For “Obscene” Bumper Sticker
23-year-old Dillon Shane Webb from Florida was driving around with an “I eat *ss” sticker on his pickup truck window and now he’s facing obscenity charges.
“Dillon Shane Webb, 23, was arrested Sunday afternoon in Lake City after a Columbia County sheriff’s deputy saw the message on the rear window of the vehicle. When the officer pulled Webb over, he claimed the sticker violated a Florida statute dealing with the possession and distribution of obscene material, according to the Lake City Reporter.”
According to the site, Webb responded that they were “just words” and when the officer asked how a parent to a small child would explain those words, Webb reportedly said it would be “up to the parent.”
“The deputy then gave Webb a notice to appear at the Columbia County Courthouse on May 23 and took a photo of the offending sticker as evidence,” HuffPost states. “But when the deputy asked Webb to remove one of the letters from the word ‘*ss’ so the statement on the sticker would ‘no longer be derogatory,’ the suspect refused, citing his First Amendment rights, according to the report.”
After refusing to alter the statement, Webb was reportedly charged with resisting, taken to jail, and later released on $2,500 bond.
“The truck was towed, but Webb said the sticker was still in place when he retrieved the vehicle from the impound lot. Webb now plans to file a wrongful arrest lawsuit against the sheriff’s office,” Huff Post states.
“I guess this cop just didn’t find it funny, and he just thought he has to put me in jail,” Webb reportedly said of being thrown in jail.
