Joan Cheever said police infringed her religious freedom when they fined her $2,000 for feeding the homeless in San Antonio. As she’d done every Tuesday for years, Cheever was giving out free meals from her food truck in a public park last week when police rolled up and started writing a ticket. Right away, she told the officers they were burdening her free exercise of religion, according to an on-the-scene report from Texas Public Radio. Cheever pointed to the federal and state Religious Freedom Restoration Acts — the same kinds of laws that caused massive controversy in Indiana and Arkansas last month over concerns they would allow religious business owners to discriminate against the LGBT community. “One of the police officers said, ‘Ma’am if you want to pray, go to church,'” Cheever told the local NBC affiliate last week. “And I said, ‘This is how I pray, when I cook this food and deliver it to the people who are less fortunate.'”

Police initially pursued the driver, but chose to let him go rather than endanger other motorists in a chase. After all, the driver’s car, face and voice were all caught on camera by Roberts, who had dubbed him “The Great Cornholio” in his initial segment, based on the alter-ego of Beavis from “Beavis and Butt-head.” About 15 minutes after the traffic stop, the driver called the authorities to report that his car had been stolen.
