(NEWSER)– A simple citation couldn't keep Arnold Abbott off the streets of Fort Lauderdale, where he's been feeding the homeless for more than two decades.
The 90-year-old man, charged Sunday with violating a new ordinance that clamps down on the public feeding of the homeless, dished out meals at a public beach Wednesday, just as he has every Wednesday for 23 years in honor of his late wife, ABC News reports. Shouts of "God bless you, Arnold!" were heard as almost 100 homeless people and volunteers gathered around, the AP reports. Though officers at first only recorded "Chef Arnold," they later stepped in to issue him another citation.
