East Hampton Village police Chief Jerry Larsen said officers received complaints Aug. 18 about cars parked illegally around the lemonade stand. A cop was dispatched to the scene to inform the celebrity and his family that village code prohibits any form of peddling, 27 East reported.

The lemonade stand was set up to raise money for Jessica Seinfeld's charity, Baby Buggy, designed to provide essential child gear and services, according to the charity's website.

Seinfeld's wife, Jessica, later posted a photo to Instagram of their son, Julian, and two of his friends holding up their hands up behind their heads, right in front of a police car.

“Lemonade dreams crushed by local neighbor, but not before raising lots of money for @loverecycled,” Jessica Seinfeld wrote. “Thanks to all of our customers and big tippers! Thanks, Xander and Jaden, for crushing it today with Julian and Jerry.”
