A man was cited outside a Florida supermarket after undercover plainclothes officers busted him for wearing his face mask incorrectly.
The incident happened this week outside a Publix in North Miami Beach.
The man, Dean Gonzalez, who was wearing a mask when he was confronted by police, insists he wasn’t trying to violate mask orders and argues he was entrapped.
“It was like a trap,” Gonzalez told Local10.com. “It was a mask trap.”
According to Gonzalez, he was speaking with officers when the mask moved beneath his nose.
“That was enough for the officer to threaten Gonzalez with arrest,” reports Local10.
In cell phone footage taken by Gonzalez documenting the incident, a masked man displaying a badge tells Gonzalez he can either receive a citation or go to jail.
