Tree exorcist arrested for attacking trees by Eiffel towerA self-styled exorcist who believes woodland carries evil spirits has been arrested for attacking 100 trees next to the Eiffel tower.

The 38-year-old hammered nails into branches and trunks, and painted graffiti on them.

Gardeners, in Paris, called police on Monday after the man was spotted baying at the top of a large chestnut tree on the Champs de Mars.

The unnamed man told officers that he was “trying to rid the trees of demon forces” before being taken into custody, pending psychiatric reports.
