(NEWS 12 LONG ISLAND/CNN) Children running a lemonade stand in New York state were shut down by police last week.

The closure reportedly happened after a neighbor complained.

If you think it sounds like the kind of neighborhood spat you might see on a television comedy, you're not too far off:

That's because comedy legend Jerry Seinfeld and his family are part of the story.

"I could think of a lot of other things that they should shut people down, for but that's carrying it a little too far," said East Hampton resident Barry Wayne.

An Instagram posted by the comedian's wife shows Seinfeld, his son Julian, and two of his friends with their hands up posing after being ticketed for selling lemonade on a street near their home by police.

It seems a neighbor called police complaining the kids didn't have a permit, even though they were donating all of the proceeds to charity. 

"I think it's terrible, and my kids sell lemonade all the time on the street for charity, and we actually make a lot of money and donate it to pediatric cancer," said East Hampton Resident  Jordan Rosner.

Police reportedly told the Seinfelds they not only needed to have a permit, but that they should not hold up traffic.
