Jerry Seinfeld's lemonade stand gets shut down by police

Jerry Seinfeld's son got in trouble with the police -- and he's only 12 years old!

Don't worry -- the comedian doesn't exactly have a derelict kid on his hands.

Seinfeld and his family were shut down by East Hampton, New York, police on Tuesday, Aug. 18 for setting up a lemonade stand, reports CBS New York.

Seinfeld's wife Jessica posted a photo on Instagram of her son, Julian, and two of his friends with their hands up (jokingly) amidst the police drama.

When officers arrived after a neighbor complained about illegally parked cars, they informed the Seinfelds that it is not legal to run a lemonade stand on village property.

"Lemonade dreams crushed by local neighbor, but not before raising lots of money for @loverecycled," Jessica Schneider wrote on Instagram. "Thanks to all of our customers and big tippers!"

Julian and his friends were selling lemonade to raise money for Jessica's charity, called Baby Buggy. The organization provides essential clothing, gear and services to families in need nationwide.

The Seinfelds live in East Hampton part-time.
