Doctors Arrested After Ripping Down Trump Flag In Front Of Crying Children - WATCH
Incident described as 'despicable parenting'
Two Florida doctors were arrested after they were caught ripping down their neighbor's Trump 2020 flag by climbing on a ladder as their children pleaded with them to stop.
The couple, Geoffrey Michael Fraiche, 41, and Laura Ann Webb-Fraiche, 38, was arrested and charged with trespassing, criminal mischief, larceny and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
The footage, taken from a surveillance video, captured the doctors celebrating as they took down the flag.
Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz shared the video on Twitter, denouncing the doctors' actions and describing the incident as "despicable parenting."
The senior citizen's pro-Trump flag was on proud display outside his property in Gulf Breeze, Florida.
67-year-old David Brannen's surveillance video has now gone viral on social media.
The doctor couple drove up to the property in a golf cart with their children on April 7, police say.
The children cried saying they were afraid the parents would go to jail.
The victim of the vandalism told officials that the two doctors cost him over $700 in damages and that he intends to press charges.

The doctors, both gynecologists at neighboring health facilities in Pensacola, Florida, were released from Santa Rosa County Jail on Wednesday.
This is not the first time senior citizens have been attacked for supporting their president.
Last year, an elderly New Jersey man was assaulted in a supermarket for wearing a MAGA hat in Franklin Township.
The 81-year-old man suffered minor injuries, the statement said.
The alleged attack is just one of many incidents in the headlines were people have been attacked or refused service for supporting Trump.
