Police arrest tree for blocking traffic in Maine


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

The man did not respond to officers when they warned him against obstructing traffic in a busy intersection in the city’s downtown.

WCSH-TV posted video of the man being arrested after he blocked traffic again.

A friend of the man says he was attempting to study the city’s traffic patterns.

The man appeared to be dressed as a pine tree or other type of evergreen.

Portland police were not immediately available to provide more details about the incident, including the name of the man or the specific charge.
