An 87-year-old husband was arrested after repeatedly visiting his wife at a local assisted living facility.

Horace Sherrwood Harper of Clermont was arrested on a charge of trespassing at 10 a.m. Tuesday after he was spotted sitting at a table talking to his wife who was in a wheelchair at Village Veranda Assisted Living and Memory Care in Lady Lake, according to an arrest report from the Lady Lake Police Department.

The previous night, Harper had been warned by police to stop “sneaking” into the facility to visit his wife. He was formally trespassed from the facility.

At the time the Washington D.C. native was arrested Wednesday morning, he was “very cooperative and polite,” the arrest report noted.

Harper was taken into custody and booked at the Lake County Jail. He was later released on his own recognizance.
