Man busted, tased after using park tree for gymnastics exercises

Andrew Paul Tremsky, 36, of Boca Raton, was tased and sent to the slammer after cops and a county park ranger told him he couldn’t attach his gymnastics rings to a tree in a Delray Beach, reports the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

“It’s probably his constitutional right to be on park property,” said Eric Call, director of Parks and Recreation for Palm Beach County. “If he was doing back flips on the ground, that would be fine. But to be using the park’s natural features, buildings or structures in a manner that they weren’t intended to be used for, that’s not a constitutional right.”

Cops said, in their report, that the 36-year-old Boca Raton man was “verbally abusive” to the ranger and had approached them in a “threatening manner” with his ID after he was asked repeatedly to show identification.

Tremsky is now jumping through hoops to clear his name: He told the Sun-Sentinel that so far he has spent $3,000 on a lawyer.
