(Scroll down for video) An elderly man was arrested on charges of feeding the homeless after being accused of feeding homeless people in public, police in Florida said.

Fort Lauderdale Police said that they charged three men, two pastors and an elderly man, after being caught feeding the homeless in public on Sunday.

90-year-old Arnold Abbott said that he has been feeding the homeless for over 20 years. The pastors were identified as Dwayne Black and Mark Sims.

Since this is their first offense, the three men face up to 60 days in jail and a $500 fine. Abbott vowed to sue the city of Fort Lauderdale, for forcing him to turn his back on the poor,

Abbott said that he will give away food for the homeless again later this week, and he hopes to get arrested again.
