June 8, 1990

On this day in 1990, two days after a federal court declares the 2 Live Crew album As Nasty As They Wanna Be legally obscene, Charles Freeman, the owner of a record store in Ft. Lauderdale, was arrested for selling the album by six county sheriff’s deputies who are working undercover.

He is later found guilty of selling obscene material and fined $1000. Police may have had motive for targeting Freeman, as he was later arrested for selling cocaine.
