Update to tree-sitting protest in Flagstaff

FLAGSTAFF -- On Tuesday, Flagstaff Police Department returned back to the privately owned property of Lowell Observatory for two more trespassing suspects. Two men had secured themselves to heavy construction equipment located in the area where the first subject has taken up a position in a large Ponderosa pine tree.

These suspects were ordered to remove the locks securing them to the construction equipment, and to leave the private property, as they were trespassing, but the suspects claimed they no longer had keys to the locks.

A severe monsoon thunder and lightening storm developing in the vicinity of the protestors. They were at risk since they were locked to construction equipment. A decision was made to call in the Arizona Department of Public Safety, who helped remove the locking devices. They unlocked the locks and removed the men away from the risk of a lightning strike.

The two were evaluated by medical personnel and then arrested for trespassing on private property.

They were identified as Alexander Iwasa, 32, who has a General Delivery address in Flagstaff, and Erik William Fettig, 20, of Massachusetts. Both were booked into the Coconino County Jail on trespassing charges.

The remaining tree-sitter was also identified as 26-year old James Alan Kennedy of Flagstaff. Kennedy remains in the tree and will be arrested for trespassing once he is apprehended.
