Carmen James Torockio circled around the parking lot of Florida's Bonita Beach Park for 45 minutes searching for a place to park. When the 72-year-old James finally saw somebody pulling out, he stopped and waited for the spot. However, while doing so, a Lee County Sheriff's deputy ordered him to move along because he was blocking traffic. James refused the order and continued to wait for the parking place. When the other driver left James pulled in and was again approached by the deputy who informed him he was being arrested. James then told the officer, "I am not!
