Charges Dropped Against Florida Man Busted For "I Eat Ass" Car Sticker

Four days after a Florida Man was arrested for having an “I Eat Ass” sticker on the rear window of his truck, prosecutors have dropped a pair of misdemeanor charges filed against the 23-year-old motorist.

The decision by the Columbia County State Attorney’s Office came after Sunday’s arrest of Dillon Shane Webb received widespread media coverage (and a fair amount of mockery).

In a one-page "no information" filing today, prosecutors informed the court that they were dropping the case against Webb, who was free on $2500 bond following his May 5 collar for possession of obscene material and resisting an officer without violence.

A prosecutor noted that an evaluation of the evidence “through the prism of Supreme Court precedent” determined that Webb “has a valid defense to be raised under the First Amendment of our United States Constitution. Given such, a jury would not convict under these facts.”

Webb was pulled over by a sheriff’s deputy who spotted the “I Eat Ass” sticker (seen above) on the rear window of Webb’s Chevrolet truck. The cop contended that the sticker violated the state’s obscene material statute and asked Webb how “a parent of a small child would explain the meaning of the words 'I EAT ASS.’”

The deputy then asked Webb, seen at right, to alter the sticker so that it would “no longer be derogatory.” When Webb declined the request on First Amendment grounds, he was handcuffed and placed in the rear of a squad car.

Webb, who purchased the Chevy last month, told TSG that the sticker had only received positive comments and generated laughs in his Lake City neighborhood.

Webb, who has no prior arrest record, works in the warehouse of a large grocery chain. As a result of the arrest, he said, his employer had temporarily suspended him.
