Iowa man arrested after lawn mower ride on highway


MADRID, Iowa — A middle-of-the-night ride on a lawn mower landed one Iowa man in jail.
The Boone County Sheriff's Office says deputies stopped the man on Highway 17 near Madrid around 1 a.m. Wednesday after receiving reports of someone driving a mower all over the road with no headlights. Madrid is about 25 miles northwest of Des Moines.
The man was arrested for drunken driving. The Sheriff's Office says his blood-alcohol level was .190 — well above Iowa's limit of .08.
Boone County Sheriff Ron Fehr says it's illegal in Iowa to drive any kind of motor vehicle anywhere while drunk.
Fehr wasn't sure how fast the man was going on the six-speed Bolens lawn tractor. The Des Moines Register reports that the top speed for that mower is about 5 mph.

Is that "Steve" from youtube by chance ?
Oh, wait,no that was a John Deere wasn't it ?



You should go to youtube and type in Steve's DUI on a lawnmower,there are 3 or 4 videos and they are a riot,although perhaps not for Steve.:bigrofl:
