Jerry Seinfeld Hilariously Trolls Cops After they Shut Down his Son's Lemonade Stand posted 08/28/2015, 12:18 PM (The Free Thought Project)
[Category: Resistance]
East Hampton, NY — To raise funds for a local baby clothes charity, funnyman Jerry Seinfeld and family set up a lemonade stand. However, their charitable endeavor would be short lived thanks to East Hampton police officers protecting the public from the dangers of an unlicensed lemonade stand.

Seinfeld’s son, Julian, and two friends set up the stand last week to raise money for Baby Buggy. Baby Buggy is a charity started by Seinfeld’s wife Jessica to provide kids’ clothing and baby equipment to needy families.

According to police, a neighbor complained that cars were “illegally” parking as thirsty drivers lined up for the fresh-squeezed brew. Hero officers then swooped in to shut down the stand, citing local village law violations.

Luckily, the stand was able to operate long enough to raise a some money.

After being shut down, Jerry and family posed for an epic pic, trolling both the police and the neighbor who would call the cops to shut down a charitable lemonade stand.

Jessica then uploaded the photo to her Instagram, with the following statement.
