Police Release Video of Texas Man Arrested for Allegedly Driving Drunk on Steamroller

Texas police have released a video showing a man arrested for allegedly driving drunk — on a steamroller.

The Pflugerville Police released the tape Wednesday showing 32-year-old Ronald Howell driving the Dynapac Vibrator Roller erratically down the road at about 4 a.m. in October, MyFOXAustin.com reported.

The officer turned on his lights and pulled Howell over.

Howell told the officer he was walking home from Players Night Club and Tuffs Tavern when he decided to take the steamroller from a construction site, the FOX affiliate reported.

"The vehicle was actually weaving. There were no flagmen, no lights on it. It was dark and it was a dangerous situation," Asst. Chief Jim McLean told MyFOXAustin.com.

"The officer smelled alcohol on his person," McLean said.

Police say Howell failed a series of sobriety tests and that he was arrested for driving while intoxicated with an invalid license and felony theft. The steamroller is valued at $180,000.

"When the officer was talking to him, the only explanation he could get was that it was cold outside, he's driving it because it was cold, trying to get home," McLean told MyFOXAustin.com.
