A man in Colorado was arrested and charged with a DUI because he was driving a lawnmower to cut his weeds while intoxicated.
Police said Kenneth Welton was driving drunk along a very busy 8th Avenue in Garden City riding a lawnmower.
“He couldn’t stand on his own. He was showing signs of impairment,” said Weld County Sheriff’s Sgt. Sean Standridge.
Welton’s driver’s license was taken at the time of the arrest. Welton told CBS4 he was not using the lawnmower to get around, but instead to take care of his weeds.
“It was just surprising, it was just a total shock. What are you kidding me? I haven’t been, I’ve been working, I have been mowing, I haven’t been bar hopping,” said Welton.
