Bloodied 70-year-old woman cuffed for having a brown lawn

9/19/07
OREM, Utah (AP) -- A 70-year-old woman arrested in a dispute over her brown lawn pleaded not guilty Tuesday, then stood by as a Los Angeles lawyer waved handcuffs for the cameras outside court.
Betty Perry is charged with resisting arrest and failing to maintain her landscaping, both misdemeanors.
She was arrested 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. She spent more than an hour in a holding cell before police released her.

It's not just there...from Michigan comes this little nugget....
Apparently a man named David Burch spent one weekend in jail and was threatened by a judge with another. Why? He can't get the grass to grow at his new home in White Cloud, Michigan. Burch says a contractor didn't sod the yard. He himself planted some grass seeds, but when they didn't grow, a judge jailed him for violating city ordinances requiring a green yard. He has now tried sodding the yard with donated turf.

Yeah, My "housing association" is a real pain, They try to tell everyone what to do, but the "Prez" of the dang thing never follows her own rules. Also never lets anyone vote on the rules. Just a pain.

I pity the fool that roughs up my grandmother, cop or not. Especially over the color of the grass.

Wow that is crazy. In my opinion, there are more important things to be concerned about than a brown lawn.

That poor woman..... I couldn't even imagine what would happen had this been my grandma... She is a feisty woman and by the time it was all said and done would have more charges than a brown lawn.....

The world is completely insane when it's ok to batter an elderly woman but not ok to have a brown lawn!

If you really want to freak out, google this story. What scares you is how many stories come up that aren't this one! So this happens a lot.

I'm only 7 yrs late with this reply but if "Green" is in I'd be doing "Life"...I turned my Lawn into a Nautical Theme consisting of Sand and Boulders planted with Coastal Shrubbery and Grasses...and on the other side of the central Pathway is an Area for the Grandchildren consisting of Playslides-Swings-Playhouse-etc' not a Green Blade of Grass in Sight...

:tongueout: :tease:to those Nosey Neighbours...

Really. No green at all in your yard.

You know...here in town there used to be a house that was painted BRIGHT purple.

I guess every place has one person that just HAS to stand out.

Not a fruit
does letting sheep on the lawn occasionally count?


mind you 3Km down a dead end road with no other houses neighbours 5Km away as the crow flies is hardly a HOS street.

...yeah, I figured you'd be along. Weightlifters are big into manscaping.

"Hey dude...you got some nice pecs."

"Wow thanks man, yeah, your glutes rock too."
