Watch: Asher Woodworth, Dressed as Tree, Arrested for Blocking Traffic


Police in Portland, Maine, arrested 30-year-old Asher Woodworth after he walked back and forth slowly through downtown traffic dressed as a tree, Statesman reports.

When Woodworth refused to comply with police orders, authorities took him to jail on a misdemeanor charge of obstructing a public way.

Police said Woodworth’s motivation was to “see how people would react to his performance” and how it would “impact people’s natural choreography.” Woodworth was covered in dozens of evergreen branches, which police removed to find his identification and make his face clear for a booking photo.




  1. I am a better and more complete person than I was before I read this important news item. If I did this on 18th Ave, or on Central Ave in the 5T, would Matzav feel the need to report it?
