A U.S. military ex-serviceman and gym proprietor in New York ripped up a $15,000 lockdown penalty from the Erie County Health Department during a live Fox News appearance on Tuesday.
Robby Dinero, owned of Orchard Park’s Athletes Unleashed gym, was hit with the massive penalty following a clash with a health department official and Erie County sheriffs on Friday for comprising an after-hours protest in his closed gym with other business owners. The dissension, reported by The Daily Wire, ended with the government officials being ushered off the gym owner’s property.
Speaking with Fox News’ Sandra Smith, Dinero argued that the lockdown edicts go too far, denying Americans the freedom to earn a living. Simultaneously, the ex-serviceman stressed, NY Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz are bringing in $ 225,000 and $103,000 wages, respectively, via taxpayers.
Dinero challenged the New York officials to look their ingredients’ children in the eyes and tell them their parents’ work is not “essential.”
Before signing off with Smith, the businessman took the $15,000 penalty and ripped it up, as advocates met behind him chanted” We will not comply” and waved American flags.
Erie County Comptroller Stefan Mychajliw posted a link to a GoFundMe account for Dinero to Twitter on Tuesday.

The GoFundMe reads as follows 😛 TAGEND
Local business owner, Marine and conflict ex-serviceman Robby Dinero started the resistance against the government and police arbitrarily been closed down firms because of COVID. Video of this proud patriot kicking out health inspectors from his gym went viral. Power hungry politicians perforated back, fining this veteran and small business owner $15,000 for defiantly standing up to tyrannical COVID shut downs that are more about influence and control than your health. We can help Robby fight back. An attack on one is an attack on all. Let’s grow enough to cover the cost of his ridiculous fine orchestrated by an over-zealous Health Department to be covered by Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz.
As noted by The Daily Wire, Dinero and other business owners refused to comply when a health department official and the Erie County Sheriff’s Department entered their facility on Friday. The business owners, who videotapeed the interaction, told the health dept. official and the sheriffs to “go get a warrant” and leave their “private property.” To cheers from the business owners, the authorities complied, leaving the gym and the front of the business, video shows.
“Tim Walton attended the meeting that began at around 7pm Friday and tells WBEN there were more than 100 people attending the meeting inside the gym, ” WBEN reported. “In a press release and blog post, Walton says the Erie County Sheriff’s Department and Health Department entered the facility and confronted the amas, telling them they were in violation of the limit to mass gatherings of no more than ten.”
