Jacksonville activist Ben Frazier is threatening to sue Gov. Ron DeSantis in federal and state court if a trespassing charge stemming from his high-profile arrest last week isn't dropped. Frazier made the announcement during a press conference Monday with his attorney, John Phillips. Frazier faces a misdemeanor trespassing charge after he entered the governor's COVID-19 press conference in Jacksonville last week without media credentials.
