Man Rides Lawnmower in Traffic, Unsurprisingly Gets DUI

Man Riding Lawnmower Gets Arrested for DUI

Getting arrested for DUI must be bad enough, but imagine the additional embarrassment of getting busted for drunk driving on a lawnmower. That’s what happened to a 69-year-old man in Wisconsin last Saturday.

Police came upon Charles Gray while he was riding a lawnmower down a busy stretch of highway. At first, Gray refused to pull over and motioned for the squad car to go around him. But eventually he pulled into a local Walgreens parking lot and was apprehended.

Gray told cops he only had one beer that day, but a breathalyzer showed his blood alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit. Oops!

Gray, who claimed he didn’t know it was illegal to drive a lawnmower on the street, has three previous drunk driving arrests. (And now, a fourth.) Maybe the city could recruit him to take care of the pesky weed problem by the highway.
