SAVANNAH, Ga. - Edgar John Rowe should have seen it coming, but he didn't.
Savannah police officers arrested the homeless man after finding him telling fortunes without a license.
According to a police report, officers spotted Mr. Rowe, 52, sitting on the ground in Reynolds Square on Monday afternoon, a piece of cloth taped to the sidewalk.
Mr. Rowe was taken to the Chatham County jail on charges of fortune-telling without a license and blocking pedestrian traffic. He was released on a $760 bond Tuesday, according to the Chatham County Sheriff's Department.
This is not the first time Mr. Rowe has been arrested on fortune-telling charges.
Records show he was released from jail on another $760 bond this weekend after being arrested Saturday. He was also arrested last July.
After that arrest, Judge Claire Cornwell-Williams banned Mr. Rowe from setting up on River Street, the report says.
Mr. Rowe said he had written a letter to a police official to solve the problem. Police said they are unaware of such a letter.
