We are Not Kidding — A ‘Tree’ Was Arrested for Blocking Traffic
On Monday, cops arrested a man for dressing up like a tree, and blocking traffic in Portland, Maine. Assistant Police Chief Vern Malloch told the Portland Press Herald that 30-year-old Asher Woodworth was cuffed after refusing orders to leave an intersection.

Woodworth reportedly told cops that he just wanted to see the reactions of others, and how he would “impact people’s natural choreography.” He now faces one count of obstructing a public way, a misdemeanor, and is currently out on bail. The Press Herald reached out to him several times, but he reportedly never agreed to an interview.
