So, it turns out People’s Park is still just as sketchy as it seems. On Thursday night, a man who had been inhabiting one of the trees there for 89 days was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, wherein he allegedly attacked another man with a knife while still in his tree.

While we try and fail to visualize this scene, it should be noted that the tree -sitter in question, Matthew Dott, is not to be confused with the tree-sitters at Memorial Stadium or that one guy in front of Wheeler. Tree-sitting is kind of a local hobby.

Dott, who’d previously stated he would, “be here however long it takes until this park remains a park,” whatever that means, came down from his tree voluntarily after police officers began moving in to remove him.

We’d like to think People’s Park is a little safer now, but probably not by much.
