Scottsdale Police arrested a woman who latched onto a tree crews were cutting dow.SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Scottsdale Police had to pry a woman off a tree she was trying to save.
When Tannis Revell heard chainsaws slice into the towering eucalyptus
next to hear home, near 86th Street and Chaparral in Scottsdale, she
latched on to the tree and refused to let go.
Officers eventually cuffed Revell, and took her to jail.
On her way to the patrol car, Revell screamed at her neighbor, begging her to reconsider the plan to take the tree down.
"Animals live in that tree! I don't want you to chop it down," she
yelled to her neighbor, and the tree's owner, Jeannette Billings.
"It's a safety risk," said Billings, who wasn't happy to see the tree go either.
"But it's splitting, dropping branches, leaning toward my house, and if it falls it'll kill someone," said Billings.
