Gulf Breeze, FL – A pair of married gynecologists in Florida were arrested on Tuesday after they took their small children with them to steal a Trump 2020 flag out of a neighbor’s yard (video below).
The incident occurred after dark on April 7 and was captured on video by the homeowner’s security cameras, ABC News reported.
Ringer surveillance video showed 38-year-old Laura Ann Webb-Fraiche and 41-year-old Geoffrey Michael Fraiche arriving at their neighbor’s house in a golf cart, WKRG reported.
In the video, a small child stood by the flagpole and begged his parents not to steal the flag.
“You’re gonna go to jail,” the terrified-sounding child told his father who was holding a toddler at the start of the video.
When his father ignored him, the child went over to plead with his mother.
“You’re gonna go to jail,” the child told the mother.
That’s when the video showed Webb-Fraiche disregarded her child’s concern and handed her husband a ladder with which to climb the neighbor’s flagpole.
“No, don’t do it,” the child said and began crying as his father put down the toddler to take the ladder from his mother.
Fraiche set the ladder up beside the flag pole as the child became more hysterical, the video showed.
“Stop it! I don’t want you two going to jail,” the child cried. “Please!”
“Don’t cry,” Fraiche told the child in the video.
“Don’t worry,” Webb-Fraiche reassured her child, who only became more upset as his father climbed the ladder to steal the flag, the video showed.
“You’re gonna go to jail,” the child wailed. “Don’t do it.”
A moment later Fraiche climbed down the ladder, handing his wife the pilfered campaign flag, the video showed.
The child sobbed as his father folded the ladder and then let it fall in his neighbor’s yard.
“Yes, baby! Yes!” Webb-Fraiche yelled as she leaped for joy and celebrated in the video, apparently oblivious to the security camera.
When their neighbor discovered the theft, he reviewed the video footage, and contacted police, WKRG reported.
The victim told police that the couple had done about $700 damage total to his flag pole and his flag.
Fraiche and Webb-Fraiche were arrested on April 14 and charged with criminal mischief, larceny, trespassing, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, WKRG reported.
Both were later released.
The police report said Fraiche is a gynecologist at Sacred Heart Hospital and Webb-Fraiche is a gynecologist at West Florida Hospital, according to WKRG.
U.S. Representative Matt Gaetz (R-Florida) condemned the doctors’ behavior in a tweet on Tuesday afternoon.
