    West Palm Beach Police arrested a man on who has quite the familiar name: Vladimir Putin.

    No, it was not the President of Russia who ended up in jail, but a resident of the city who shares his name. 

    A member of the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to NBC 6 that Putin was also charged with resisting arrest following the incident outside a Publix.

    Store employees said he was screaming at them and refusing to leave. Putin was taken into custody and charged with trespassing.
