A 45-year-old man who Oklahoma City police arrested last month on charges of panhandling, says he makes $60,000 a year begging for money.
The man, Shane Speegle, was first approached by a police officer who told him that he needed a permit and an insurance policy to panhandle. The officer warned Speegle to leave, but arrested him after he was seen begging for money about 20 minutes later.
