Woman jailed for neglected lawn

A 70-year-old US woman has been left bruised and bloody after an unexpected clash with police who came to arrest her because her lawn was dry and brown.

Trouble flared when Utah pensioner Betty Perry, 70, refused to give her name to an officer trying to caution her for not watering her lawn.

She says the officer hit her with handcuffs, cutting her nose, although police insist she slipped and fell.


A caution for not watering her lawn, the exact opposite to this country where you can get a fine FOR watering your lawn (during the hosepipe ban).
See what happens when you don't trim your bush? You get licked. :D
