I guess the neighboors aren't into wood carving....
WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) - What started as a prank on a Wyoming homeowner ended with a visit from police.
Neighbors were not amused when a male body part appeared carved into a tree stump on 40th Street SE just off Clyde Park Avenue. They complained to police and to ReportIt.
The homeowner said she recently purchased the house and said her stepfather carved a part of the male anatomy as a prank instead of cutting down the tree.
Wyoming Police showed up at her door and her stepfather showed up soon after to chop down the evidence.
"Cops came a couple of times," said homeowner Mariah Cordes. "We decided to take it down."
Police said if the woman had not taken the stump down willingly, they would have sent the case to the city attorney's office to see if the carving violated the city's ordnance against disorderly conduct.
Officers say their biggest concern was that people walking or driving by -- especially those with children -- might be offended.
