World War 2 veteran Arnold Abbott defied authorities yet again last night to feed the homeless on a beach in Fort Lauderdale as police issued the 90-year-old with a third citation for violating a newly passed city ordinance.
Officers approached Abbott and told him the citation would be sent by mail but they did not stop him from continuing to serve food.
Abbott, who has been feeding the homeless for 23 years, previously won a lawsuit in 2000 which overturned a ban on feeding homeless people on the beach, an outcome authorities claim is superseded by a new city ordinance which prohibits the sharing of food.
“I’m not interested in playing games,” Abbott toldLocal 10. “I’m here because the homeless have the same rights to the beauty and placidity of the beach.”
