A second man accused of hanging an antisemitic banner on a Florida highway overpass is arrested

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A second man accused of hanging antisemitic banners on a Florida highway overpass has been arrested. He's charged with violating a new state law that makes it a crime to display images on a structure without permission. The law was passed earlier this year to counter the distribution of antisemitic literature and projections of racist and antisemitic words on buildings. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement says the man was arrested near Gainesville on Sunday. Another man was arrested last week in Cape Canaveral. Both are charged with criminal mischief.
