Since I am still trying to figure out what goes where, I am putting this here. If it is supposed to be somewhere else, feel free to move it and let me know so that I know for the future. Thanks.

On to the article:

Quote:
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.

"I ask the citizens of Orem: How many of you would like to have your great-grandmother taken from her home with bruises and blood and placed in handcuffs for failing to water her lawn?" attorney Gloria Allred said

Welcome, and you did place this in the right place.

This is totally inappropriate and ridiculous, that woman should have never been bothered.
