Photo does not have a caption

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – Vladimir Putin was arrested Monday at a Florida supermarket.

It was not the Russian president. Instead, a West Palm Beach native with the same name is charged with trespassing and resisting an officer.

Store managers at a Publix in West Palm Beach said they tried to get Putin to leave the store, but he refused. That's when they called police.  Officers said he was yelling at the workers before he was arrested.
