Police said a drunk man drove a lawnmower to a store about a mile from his house. They arrested him on his way home.
Dondi Bowles, 50, of Vermilion was arrested Friday night as he drove the mower on a sidewalk.
Police said a breath test showed that Bowles’ blood alcohol level was 0.144 percent, nearly twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent.
It was his third DUI arrest in six months, they said.
The lawnmower was towed.
From the Vermilion Ohio News:
A 52-year-old woman allegedly uses her sports utility vehicle to try to run over her husband, who was riding a lawnmower.
From GPS World:
A novel competition among university engineering students to build a GPS-guided lawnmower that could cut 150 square meters of grass without human intervention didn’t turn out to be quite the Tom Sawyer moment that some had imagined.
The lawnmowing event left unshorn most of the greensward at the Rotary Park in Beavercreek, Ohio.
About the Ohio Mower Racers’ Dewberry Mudbog:
The Dewberry Mudbog was started in 1990 after two neighbor friends bet each other $1.00 that the other wouldn’t be able to mow a swampy portion of an elderly neighbor’s yard faster than the other could. This eventually led to the “pit.” The Dewberry Mudboggers are the only lawnmower mud racing team in existance as of yet. We got our name “The Dewberry Mudboggers” because of where this all began — on Dewberry Road in Columbus, Ohio.
