A Tampa Bay-area man was arrested Saturday for allegedly throwing a hot dog at an officer who warned him he was violating a city ordinance, according to a local report.
Jason Stoll, 47, is charged with assaulting a law enforcement officer and nonviolently resisting an officer.
Around 12 noon Saturday, a St. Petersburg police officer told Stoll that he could no longer sell hot dogs on the street after his permit to close the street expired, according to court filings obtained by WFLA.
An officer told Stoll to close the store, but he continued trying to sell a hot dog, court documents said. Frustrated, Stoll threw a hot dog at the officer, who was in full uniform at the time of the incident, according to the broadcaster.
Stoll, who lives in New Port Richey, was assigned to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office. Online court records show he’s out after posting $2,500 bail.
Court records say he has many tattoos, including the phrases “Hustle Eat Sleep Repeat” and “What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger,” among many others.
If convicted, he faces at least three years in prison.
