WTF? #1517

In Orem, Utah, a 70-year-old woman was arrested for not watering her lawn.

Apparently she "is charged with resisting arrest and failing to maintain her landscaping, both misdemeanors."

WTF?

Failing to water your lawn is a misdemeanor? In Utah? It's a desert, for crying out loud!

Not to mention, "resisting arrest?" How can you tick that box on the form as a cop and not get slagged hourly for the rest of your career?

Sad, pathetic cop: "Well, see, she was a really spry 70 year old woman. I think she was taking a double dose of Geritol Extra Plusmax Titanium."

Any other cop on the force: "Yes, yes. BTW did you see that two-year old litter? Should we call for backup before we arrest her? You nitwit."
