A Grand Prairie, Texas, man is serving 17 days in jail for having an “overgrown lawn.”

Rick Yoes, an electrician for Tarrant County College who routinely works long hours, turned himself into custody Saturday because he lacked the funds to pay the $1,700 fine he received over his yard, which is the equivalent of three mortgage payments for the electrician.

“Yes, we should have been more on top of it, but we were so busy with work, and when we got a warning from the city we handled it,” his daughter Angel told the Fresno People’s Media, adding that they had been keeping the yawn “buzzed” ever since the initial warning.


That wasn’t enough for the City of Grand Prairie, which issued a warrant for Yoes’ arrest and the $1,700 fine.

To pay off the fine by sitting in jail, Yoes has to use every vacation day he accrued at his job, but fortunately, Yoes is well-liked by his employers and the student body at Tarrant County College.

To pay off the fine by sitting in jail, Yoes has to use every vacation day he accrued at his job, but fortunately, Yoes is well-liked by his employers and the student body at Tarrant County College.

“In 2012, he dressed up in 1776-style regalia and read a copy of the U.S. Constitution to the student body,” Brian Sumner with the Fresno People’s Media wrote.

“Because of his dedication he is loved by faculty and students.”

“His collection of beautiful seashells is also on display at the campus.”

The fact that someone like Yoes is spending 17 days in jail over his yard shows you that the real problem isn’t with overgrown lawns, but rather overgrown government.
