A Utah Septuagenarian Woman Jailed Over Unkempt Lawn

Quite frankly, this was just too disturbingly bizarre to go unmentioned. The BBC reports that a little old lady was arrested in Utah after being injured by a police officer who was attempting to reprimand her over the state of her lawn. After allegedly hitting the woman in the nose, the officer took her to the hospital and then to jail for resisting arrest. She was later released. She is quoted as explaining that she feels rather “distraught” by the incident and wishes she could “start [the] day over and it would all be different.”
