Plea Deal in Case of Tree Anger

Plea Deal in Case of Tree Anger

A Brooklyn man accused of threatening people during a dispute over a tree is taking a plea deal in the case. 

Paul Douglas had a preliminary hearing yesterday and pleaded no contest to making terroristic threats using a dangerous weapon.  Douglas will serve two years on probation and complete counseling.  He’s accused of threatening to shoot someone because he thought they were going to cut down a tree on his property. 

This all happened on election day and forced the polling place in Brooklyn to be moved to a different location.
