Missouri Man Accused of Drunken Driving — on His Lawnmower

An eastern Missouri man is accused of drunken driving — on a riding lawnmower.

The suspect's name has not been released. He lives in Iron Mountain Lake, about 60 miles southwest of St. Louis.

The man was suspected of being involved in a disturbance on Sunday. On Monday, police got a tip that the man was at a home. An officer who went to the home saw the man driving down a street on a riding mower, pulling a trailer with a case of beer. Police say the man also had a flask of whiskey in his pocket.

The man's blood alcohol registered at .115, well above the state legal limit of 0.08.

The man was arrested for driving while intoxicated and careless and imprudent driving.
