It's the dream of nearly every American kid during the hot summer to run his or her own lemonade stand. But apparently not in East Hampton village.  

For Jerry Seinfeld and his family, like an old "Seinfeld" TV episode, it's no lemonade for you!

An Instagram post by the TV 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 that a neighbor called village police complaining the kids didn't have a permit, even though they were donating all of the proceeds to charity.  

Chief Larsen was unavailable for comment. Also unavailable for comment was the mayor of East Hampton Village.  

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

The Instagram post with Seinfeld and the kids read in part, "lemonade dreams crushed by local neighbor but not before raising lots of money."
