Mr T the chainsaw man..
In July 1976, Mr T (real name Laurence Tureaud) was serving in the Army, where he was punished by his platoon sergeant to chopping down trees at training camp. What the platoon sergeant didn’t tell him was how many trees! Between 6.30 and 10.00am Mr T single-handedly chopped down over seventy trees much to his sergeants horror!
This wasn’t the first time that Mr T was involved with a controversy involving tress. In 1987, he cut down over a 100 oak trees on his estate in Chicago. This angered his neighbours with the incident now being referred to as The Lake Forest Chain Saw Massacre
