The owner of a Plantation gym was arrested for not following the social distancing rules of Broward County. Michael Ryan Carnevale was arrested this morning after Plantation Police observed violations of rules meant to curb the transmission of COVID-19. Carnevale’s arrest was announced by his attorney, State Rep. Anthony Sabatini.
On Twitter, Sabatini wrote:
Florida’s most corrupt local government—@browardinfo—just arrested my Plaintiff Mike Carnevale because *1 person inside his gym was not wearing a mask. He was targeted and arrested because we filed a lawsuit against Broward County challenging their mask ordinance two days ago.
Sabatini was in Broward last week challenging the facemask requirements imposed by Broward Mayor Dale Holness.
In the police report, an officer writes Carnevale received a verbal warning last week.
