Turtle Creek, PA: Police Barge into Home, Make Arrest over Length of Grass (Video)
6/21/13 – TURTLE CREEK, PA — Police came barging into a woman’s home because they wanted to arrest the owner for the length of her lawn. A tenant, Robyn Ruckman, recorded the encounter. As she answered the door, police treated her rudely and started making demands. She told them her name but that wasn’t good enough. They wanted her to produce ID.
After asking them to stay outside, police and health inspectors barged into her home.
“You know, I don’t even see a nametag,” Ruckman told the officer.
“I don’t give a sh*t what you see. Go get your ID. You see that?! It says POLICE.”
Police were performing a 12-hour roundup of the town’s offenders, including the horrendous crimes of having uncut grass. The Lawn Nazis took care of business that day, and the streets were safe once again. Robyn Ruckman got off easy that day, as she was not the landlord. It was the owner of the long grass that was to be put behind bars.
