The story of how 4 boys mowed an elderly woman's lawn to keep her from jail

When an old lady was issued an arrest warrant for not taking care of her lawn, four young brothers stepped in.


75-year-old Gerry Suttle from Texas was handed a notice to appear before the judge for violating the city code by allowing the grass on the lot before her house to grow more than 18 inches high.

She was further issued a warrant for arrest when she failed to appear at the court, as reported by CBS News. She later explained that she never received the earlier notice from the court.

Four young brothers heard about the elderly woman's struggle through a local news report and decided to do something about it. They determined to help Suttle out by mowing the lawn for her.

"We haven't met her yet but she's 75 years old and she needs some help mowing. That's the least we could do," said Blaine Reynolds, one of the brothers.

After the boys mowed the grass on her lot, Suttle was informed that now she only required to sign a document at the court to confirm that she did not receive the original warning notice.


However, the court later issued yet another arrest warrant for her and decided that she needed to appear before the court anyway.

Suttle expressed that it was heartbreaking for her to see that some strangers helped her in doing something that the city wanted to be done, but the city itself had turned its back and did nothing for her.

CBS News further informed that its affiliate media company, KWTS, tried to contact the city representatives but they did not return the calls.

The young brothers, on the other hand, stated that they were willing to help the elderly lady for a second or even third time if it can keep her from having to go to court.
