Vladimir Putin was arrested at a Publix in West Palm Beach, Florida and charged with non-violent resistance/obstruction of an officer.
Obviously it’s not THAT Vladimir Putin, because the President of Russia has never gone HAM in a West Palm Beach Publix. THIS Vladimir Putin was arrested after cops responded to a report that a man was screaming at Publix employees.
Putin told police he had missed his ride, which would never happen to the other Putin. According to a police report, he also refused to give officers his name. We can’t imagine why.
West Palm Beach Putin, which is a really great alias he should consider, was charged with resisting and/or obstructing an officer without violence.
No word on whether he’s retained a lawyer.
