A Guy Named Maynard Is Abusing Trees in Brooklyn


Thirty-five-year-old Steve Maynard was arraigned in Brooklyn court today on criminal-mischief charges after ripping the limbs off of trees along the Eastern Parkway. But he had a reason! According to the Post, “he told cops that he was working for a private eye searching for the body of a girl named ‘Amy,’ who he believed had been killed by demons in the trees.” But at the time police arrested him, he was no long harming trees and was instead “observed by cops casting and reeling in an imaginary fishing rod.” [NYP]
