Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Reason.com: “Video: NYPD Cops Arrest a Woman For Selling Churros in the Subway”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Several NYPD officers arrested a woman for selling churros in a New York city subway station Friday night, saving the city from the forces of chaos and destruction.

Tonight as I was leaving Broadway Junction, I saw three or four police officers (one of them was either a plainclothes cop or someone who worked at the station) gathered around a crying woman and her churro cart. Apparently, it's illegal to sell food inside train stations. 1/? pic.twitter.com/sgQVvSHUik

According to Newman's follow-up tweets, the officers told the woman she could either allow her cart to be confiscated and receive a fine, or they could take her cart and arrest her.

She kept trying to speak to one of the cops in Spanish, but the plainclothes cop kept rolling his eyes and saying things like, "Are you done?" and "I know you can speak English." Eventually, they cuffed her and unceremoniously dragged her and her cart away. 3/? pic.twitter.com/qVIfN7DO7u

The NYPD did not immediately respond to a request for comment. It's unclear what the woman was arrested for, but the NYPD has periodically cracked down on churro vendors over the years for selling food without a license or vending without authorization from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. In 2014, the NYPD arrested 89 churro sellers and other underground vendors.
