LAKE CITY, Fla. (KNOU) — On Sunday, Dillon Shane Webb was pulled over in Lake City, Florida, for having a sticker bearing the message, "I eat a**," on the rear window of his Chevy truck. 

The Lake City Reporter notes that when a sheriff's deputy asked Webb "how a parent of a small child would explain the meaning of the words," Webb replied that it would be "up to the parent."

The deputy then issued Webb a notice to appear in court and asked him to remove one of the letters from the sticker so it would "no longer be derogatory." Webb refused, citing his First Amendment rights, and was promptly handcuffed and placed in the patrol car.

According to a police report, he was then "charged with obscene writing on vehicles and resisting an officer without violence."
