An act of kindness by four young brothers in Riesel, Texas, may have kept an elderly woman from having to go to jail.

According to KWTX, a warrant was issued for Gerry Suttle, 75, after she allegedly failed to appear in court after being cited because her grass was too tall. Suttle said she didn't receive the notice.

After KWTX reported Suttle's story Tuesday, four boys decided to save the day.

"We haven't met her yet, but she's 75 years old and she needs some help mowing," said Blaine Reynolds, who, along with his three brothers, came out to mow Suttle's lawn. "That's the least we could do."
"I really wouldn't want her coming out here and doing it – or paying someone else to – when we could have just done it for free," added Brandon Reynolds.

Suttle was touched by the good deed.

"I am very seldom without words," she told KWTX. "This is one time. You might want to mark it down in history that I didn't have something to say."

Suttle still has to go to court to discuss getting the warrant dropped.
