A man in Maine was arrested on Monday for blocking traffic.

Oops, forgot to mention he was DRESSED AS A TREE.


Asher Woodworth was apparently studying downtown traffic patterns in Portland while in his leafy costume, the Associated Press reported.

Police said he wanted to see how his act would impact "people's natural choreography," according to WCSH6.


The 30-year-old has been charged with obstructing a public way.

A journalist at the scene said Woodworth was initially warned by police, but he was arrested after he blocked traffic again.


A story like this is almost destined for Internet fame, and it got plenty of pun-tastic reactions on Twitter:
