UPDATE: Arraigned, ordered held.
Can nothing stop the blade-wielding tree hater of Brighton Center? Apparently not, because D-14 officers arrested him again last night trying to kill a tree on Peaceable Street by hacking at it with a hatchet, just like he's been doing for more than a decade in-between his arrests and trips to Bridgewater for observation, a D-14 community service officer told the Brighton Allston Improvement Association tonight.
For those just joining us, the ninja hates trees for some reason and tries to kill them all on two streets in Brighton Center, sometimes by hacking at them with an axe, sometimes with more delicate bark slicing with a long pruning shear, which kills the trees more slowly, occasionally with a hammer.
He's been arrested numerous times, many residents and even the city have just given up planting new trees and he keeps on chopping and hacking.
