“I know where I’m going, and I’m not coming down,” said the man on the tree, lounging against a branch with his arms folded behind his head.
After more than three hours, someone started spraying the man with water. He cursed and dropped a backpack but stayed in the tree.
But one heroic neighbor had an idea to get the man to come down.
She had heard the man say he was hungry, so she went to a store and came back with a taco, which she gave to police.
