Fined for just trying to help out? It happened to one Franklin man.

Jordan Wenzel Sr. was found cutting the long grass at Luther Park Cemetery in Muskego. The cemetery was overgrown with weeds and tall grass, and the cemetery has graves from the Civil War era.

Wenzel said he had heard disputes about cleaning up the weeds on local media, and decided to take it into his own hands.

The police report states Wenzel was fined for violating municipal statutes. The city of Muskego and a local veterans' group are now working together to find a way to clean the cemetery up even more.
