Indianapolis – A call to the city’s SWAT team was the final move against one property owner who let his grass grow higher than a foot.

Specially trained officers were called out to the 9000 block of Harrison Run Drive as city crews tried to groom one unruly yard on the northeast side.

Harrison Run is a neighborhood well cared for. At home after home in this subdivision near 71st and Fall Creek Road, neighbors tend to their yards. That’s why one in particular stood out – or in this case, stood up.



“We’re talking about a foot and half tall,” said Luis Araoz, neighbor.

But the high grass produced more than just dandelions. Monday morning, it called out Metro’s SWAT team.

“This is a first for something I had to run up against,” said Lt. Jeff Duhamell, IMPD.
