Let's get production rolling on a new episode of Seinfeld because we have the perfect plot for "the show about nothing."

Jerry Seinfeld, his son Julian and two pals set up a lemonade stand in East Hampton, New York, last weekend to raise money for Jessica Seinfeld's charity, Baby Buggy, but cops shut it down after a neighbor complained! Jerry's wife Instagrammed a goofy photo of the group getting "arrested" and captioned it, "Lemonade dreams crushed by local neighbor but not before raising lots of money for @loverecycled. Thanks to all of our customers and big tippers!" she wrote.

"Thanks Xander and Jaden for crushing it today with Julian and Jerry."

Police Chief Jerry Lawson told the East Hampton Press that they received a phone call from a neighbor complaining about illegally parked cars. The Seinfelds were informed that their charitable efforts weren't permitted under village law, as peddling is considered illegal.

Jessica has shared several pictures of outlets covering her Newman-esque fiasco, otherwise known as her family's "outlaw lemonade stand." Commenters have also come to the Seinfelds' defense. "People always talk about how kids today need to get back to the basics, and when they do, they change their mind," @PamB2001 commented on Instagram.

"No lemonade for you! Smh You would think there are more important things to worry about then kids selling lemonade," @djpurfiya wrote. "I don't wanna live in a country where kids cannot sell lemonade! It goes against core values!"

Jessica founded Baby Buggy in 2001 after the birth of her and Jerry's first child. It has delivered more than 16 million essential items such as strollers, children's clothing and cribs to families in need.
