FDLE officials said Altick’s arrest stems from a June 10 incident where antisemitic banners were hung over along the Daryl Carter Parkway Bridge in Orlando. Officials said the banners were in violation of House Bill 269, which prohibits individuals from displaying or projecting images onto a building, structure, or property without permission.

Last week, officials said they arrested Jason Brown, 48, of Cape Canaveral, on a charge related to the same incident.
