October 31, 2021
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) — A South Florida woman says she was warned by a local police officer not to wear a Halloween costume that is designed like a condo building project that she and others oppose since it would be considered a protest for which she needs a permit.
Cat Uden told the South Florida Sun Sentinel that the officer told her that if she wore the costume to the city of Hollywood's Hollyweird Halloween block party Saturday night it would be considered a planned protest march.
Uden said she still plans to wear the costume but that she won't bring along her 12-year-old son.
