"There were some tourists who asked for photos, and it would be rude to say no, so I posed and continued to walk," Dennis said.
Dennis estimated he posed for 30 to 40 photographs right before being arrested. "I would pose for one, and another would come up," he said. "I made no mention of tips, but people were tipping anyway."
At approximately 3:25 p.m. PT, Dennis said, a police car drove up, and one of the officers ordered them to put the flyers on the car.
"Then they handcuffed us and took us to jail," Dennis said. "They charged me with loitering, but tell me this: If I'm loitering, aren't all the other tourists?"
