Wisconsin Man on Lawn Tractor Arrested for OWI

May 31, 2012

Authorities say a man who drove a lawn tractor on the sidewalk, street and into a Walgreen’s parking lot in Washington County is facing his fourth drunken driving charge.

Jackson police say a preliminary breath test showed the 69-year-old man had a blood alcohol content of .21, more than 21/2 times the legal limit for operating a motor vehicle.

Squad car video shows the man on the lawn tractor motioning for police to go around him when an officer pulled up behind him Sunday evening. The Journal Sentinel says he’s being held in the Washington County Jail on $1,200 bond.
