    Maine: Police Arrest Man Dressed as Tree for Blocking Traffic

    Clad in some kind of evergreen garland, a man dressed as a tree was arrested for obstructing traffic in Portland, Maine.

    From the AP:

    PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Police say they’ve arrested a man dressed as a tree for blocking traffic in Maine.

    They say the man didn’t respond to officers when they warned him against obstructing traffic in a busy intersection in downtown Portland.

    And of course there’s video:

    Why was he dressed in arboreal fashion? To study the city’s traffic patterns, says a friend of the man-tree.

    They say the man didn’t respond to officers…

    Yeah, but if he falls in the forest, and there’s no one there…does he make a sound?

    If he’d done this while dressed as a “wetland” the town police wouldn’t have been allowed to touch him.
