EAST HAMPTON, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Jerry Seinfeld recently had to deal with some drama in the Hamptons.
And this drama didn’t have anything to do with awkward situations between George and his girlfriend, or Kramer inadvertently stealing lobsters from a professional trap. This was the real Jerry Seinfeld in 2015 and his wife, Jessica – in a dustup over a lemonade stand.
Jessica Seinfeld posted a photo to Instagram after their son, Julian and two of his friends had their lemonade stand reportedly shut down by East Hampton police back on Tuesday, Aug 18.
The photo shows an East Hampton police squad car in the back, with Jerry Seinfeld, son Julian, and two of his friends identified as Xander and Jaden with their hands jokingly behind their heads.
A neighbor had complained about illegally parked cars, according to the East Hampton Press. Upon arrival, police told the Seinfelds that lemonade stands may not be operated on village property, the newspaper reported.
“Lemonade dreams crushed by local neighbor, but not before raising lots of money for @loverecycled,” Jessica Seinfeld wrote in part in the caption for the Instagram photo. “Thanks to all of our customers and big tippers!”
“It’s really pathetic that people would call the cops over this. And it’s even more pathetic that cops shut it down,” another wrote.
But some users made light of the situation. One wrote, “thwarted by Newman again,” referring to Seinfeld’s nemesis played by Wayne Knight on his eponymous show.
The money was raised for Jessica Seinfeld’s “Baby Buggy” charity, the newspaper reported.
The Seinfelds are part-time residents of East Hampton, the newspaper reported.
