Jamie Gagne recently got in a huge fight with the city of Wilton over new plans for his workshop.

"I just want to live in peace and finish my workshop," Gagne said.

What was the main dispute of his workshop? Well, not only the fact that it was in his front yard, but also he was displaying a carved seven foot pine wood penis.

Gagne said that people were driving and walking by and laughing, so he put up a sign encouraging people to take pictures.

On Thursday a State Trooper showed up asking him to take it down. Gagne moved the penis statue to his backyard, but recently returned it back to the front yard with a "Adults Only" sign.

Gagne was soon arrested.

"This is trying to protect the issue of potential exploitation in a sexual manner, particularly as it relates to protecting children," said Saratoga County DA Karen Heggen.

Gagne disagrees.

"It's just a giant piece of wood, you think about going to a park and there's a statue of a little boy peeing or there's a marble statue of a bare-breasted woman." he said.
