DescriptionThe mayor and City Council have apologized to a 70-year-old woman arrested after a dispute with a police officer over her brown lawn - but she has still been charged in the case.

Two misdemeanor charges were filed against Betty Perry last week: resisting arrest and violating an ordinance that requires property owners to maintain their landscaping.

She was handcuffed and taken to a holding cell before red-faced police officials released her. Mayor Jerry Washburn and the City Council apologized, saying they were "shocked and dismayed" by what happened.
