Man arrested after spitting on sidewalk in Daytona Beach


An 18-year-old Daytona Beach man was arrested after he violated a city ordinance by spitting on a sidewalk, which police said created an unsanitary environment for others in the area.

According to Daytona Beach police, Austin Kennedy was walking in the 700 block of North Grandview Avenue when an officer saw him "pressing his lips together and creating saliva." Kennedy then "with force discharged the saliva from his mouth," according to police.

"It is a rarity, but it depends on the officer's discretion," DBPD Police Chief Michael Chitwood said. "We don't drive down the street looking for people spitting."

He should move to Israel where it's permitted to spit not on sidewalks but on women and little girls.  Think of how much more fun that is than spitting on a sidewalk.
