The man arrested earlier this week for refusing to remove a sticker fastened to his vehicle that read “I eat a–” is preparing to file a lawsuit over the bogus bust, his lawyer said on Friday.
The legal action would take place after all charges were dropped against Dillon Shane Webb, 23, after state prosecutors in Florida decided on Thursday that the evidence against him did not warrant prosecution.
“We’re confident a lawsuit is going to be filed,” Webb’s lawyer, Andrew Bonderud, told The Post.
“I think it’s First Amendment violation and a Fourth Amendment violation.”
Bonderud maintained that his client should not have been busted over the sticker, which he said was evident by the state attorney’s decision not to prosecute.
“I think it’s funny that the sheriff’s office thought they had probable cause to arrest him,” the attorney said.
Webb was driving a brown Chevrolet truck on Sunday when a deputy noticed the sexually suggestive sticker fastened to the rear window.
The deputy told Webb that the sticker violates a state obscenity law but Webb replied it was “just words.”
The deputy then asked Webb how “a parent of a small child” would explain what those words meant. Webb said it would be “up to the parent.”
Webb had been charged with obscene writing on vehicles and resisting an officer without violence.
