Meanwhile in Florida... Dillon Shane Webb was arrested for a window sticker that a deputy alleged violates a state obscenity law.
Webb faces charges of possession of obscene material, a first-degree misdemeanor, and resisting arrest, also a first-degree misdemeanor, after he refused to remove a sticker on his rear window that said, “I eat ass,” according to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office report.
The deputy claimed the sticker violates Florida Statute 847.011, which deals with possession and distribution of obscene material. When the deputy confronted Webb about the sticker, Webb said they were “just words,” according to the report. The deputy asked Webb how “a parent of a small child would explain the meaning of the words,” to which Webb replied that it would be “up to the parent,” the report states. The deputy issued Webb a notice to appear at the Columbia County Courthouse on May 23 before taking a photograph of the sticker to place into evidence.
After issuing the notice to appear, the deputy asked Dillon to remove one of the letters from the word “ass” so the statement would “no longer be derogatory.” Webb refused, citing his First Amendment right, according to the report. The deputy detained Webb and placed him into a patrol car.
