Anthony Brasfield faces 5 years in jail for releasing heart-shaped balloons into the sky as romantic gesture for his girlfriend

Anthony Brasfield, 40, a Florida local, was arrested last Sunday due to the a dozen of heart-shaped balloons he released into the sky as a romantic gesture for his girlfriend, Shaquina Baxter, reported the Sun Sentinel.

Unfortunatly for Anthony, the act was actually considered illegal.

The paper also reported that the couple was in a parking lot of Motel 6 in Dania Beach, Florida when Brasfield released the helium balloons while they both watched.

Unfortunately, a Florida Highway Patrol officer's attention was caught by the flying balloons. Hence, arrested Brasfield and charged him with polluting to harm humans, animals and plants under the Florida Air and Water Pollution Control Act.

If Brasfield would be convicted of the third-degree felony, he could face up to 5 years in prison.
