Brothers Mow Lawn To Keep Woman From Going To Jail

RIESEL,Texas (KWTX) - An arrest warrant for a Central Texas woman ends with an act of kindness from four brothers.

"It's a summer day, we don't have season passes yet to Hawaiian Falls. What else could we do but go out and help some people," said Blaine Reynolds, one of the boys who helped out.

On Tuesday, the Reynolds boys saw News 10's report about Gerry Suttle, the 75-year-old Riesel woman who has a warrant out for her arrest because her grass was too high.

Even though they didn't know Suttle, they decided to load up their mowers and come mow her lot.

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

Once the brothers got started, others in the community joined. Together, they were able to mow the entire lot in about two hours.

"I cannot believe this," Suttle said.

Suttle said she's not often speechless, but today she was.

"I am very seldom without words. This is one time. You might want to mark it down in history that I didn't have something to say," Suttle said.

But the Reynolds brothers said they didn't think anything of helping Suttle out.

"I really wouldn't want her coming out here and doing it or paying someone else to when we could have just done if for free," Brandon Reynolds said.

Now that the grass is cut, Suttle will have to talk to the judge about getting her warrant for failure to appear about the lawn dropped.
