WashingtonExaminer reports two Florida doctors were arrested for stealing their neighbor’s Trump 2020 flag after they were caught on camera climbing a ladder and ripping down the blue and red sign as their children pleaded for them to stop.
Geoffrey Michael Fraiche, 41, and Laura Ann Webb-Fraiche, 38, were arrested on Tuesday and charged with criminal mischief, larceny, trespassing, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor after surveillance video showed the couple celebrating as they took down the flag with at least two children with them.
Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz shared video of the crime on Twitter, denouncing the actions of the doctors and describing the event as “despicable parenting.”
Physician-Parents possessed w @realDonaldTrump hatred so much that they steal a senior citizen's Trump flag w kids in tow.
The little boy is begging them to stop.
Apparently two medical degrees lack the decency & common sense of a child.

The unnamed man whose sign was stolen told officials that the two doctors cost him over $700 in damages and that he intends to press charges.
The Fraiches, both gynecologists at neighboring health facilities in Pensacola, Florida, were released from Santa Rosa County Jail on Wednesday.
