Corbin Potter, 9, and his sisters have operated a lemonade stand in their Toronto-area neighborhood for three years. They donate the money they raise to a local hospital. But this year one neighbor complained. Then she offered them $5 to shut down the stand. Finally, she called 911. Family members say the officer who responded was polite but insisted they close the stand because they didn't have a vendor's license. "By the end of it, (Corbin) thought I was going to jail, he was balling his eyes out," his mother said. A police spokeswoman acknowledges an officer responded to a call about the stand but denies he tried to shut it down.
