A 70-year-old woman was arrested in Orem, Utah, for failing to water her brown lawn.
Failing to maintain your lawn in Orem, Utah, is a misdemeanor. Betty Perry was arrested on July 6 after failing to give her name to a police officer who visited her home. During a struggle, Perry fell and injured her nose. The bleeding woman was placed in handcuffs, taken to jail and charged for resisting arrest and failing to maintain her landscaping.
Fortunately for Perry, the police officer didn’t notice the dandelions.
