A Delaware man was arrested for disturbing the peace after he was found tearing handfuls of grass out of the earth at Blue Limestone Park Wednesday afternoon. Witnesses said he yelled that he was “taking the grass back” from the city because the “government took his yard and gave it to all the freeloaders in the park.” Many park regulars are worried that there is a larger movement trying to “take the park back.” This is the third man arrested for the crime in the past two weeks.
