Portland Police officers have gained national attention for the arrest of a man dressed as a tree standing in traffic. The Bangor Police department gave them a tip of the hat on their Facebook page in their traditional, humorous style. 

The man dressed as a tree was arrested on Monday for obstructing traffic in Congress Square. According to police, 30-year-old Asher Woodworth of Portland wanted to see how people would react to his performance and how he might impact "people's natural choreography." The reaction was to plaster him all over social media and the news.

The Bangor Police department said in their Facebook post that they don't have this kind of problem "since Mr. Bunyan has kept a watch over our Main Street."
