Vladimir Putin is facing trespassing charges.
Not Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia. But Vladimir Putin of West Palm Beach, according to the police report.
Police responded to a Publix supermarket in downtown West Palm Beach following a report of a man screaming at employees. Managers tried to get Putin to leave but he refused. He told West Palm Beach Police officers he missed his ride.
Putin appeared in court Monday morning. He’s also facing a charge of resisting/obstructing officer without violence.

Following the news of the arrest, Twitter naturally responded with a bevy of tweets casually mentioning how the Russian president was detained while screaming inside of a Florida supermarket.
.@realDonaldTrump Do you or your campaign have an official statement about Vladimir Putin being arrested at Publix?
