Man dressed as a tree arrested for blocking traffic

A man dressed as a tree was arrested on Monday, accused of blocking traffic.



Asher Woodworth, 30, from Portland, Oregon has been charged with obstructing a public way.





Police say Woodworth stood in the middle of High Street covered in tree limbs. Officers gave him a warning at first, but Woodworth allegedly returned to the street. He was arrested a short time later.



Woodworth’s motivation, according to police was to "see how people would react to his performance," and "how he might impact people’s natural choreography." Woodworth has been freed on $60 bail.

With the headline, I thought Seattle, WA; but Portland is pretty close (culturally).

Nope! The other Portland, in Maine.
