ADRIAN, Mich., Jan. 29 (UPI) -- Police in Adrian, Mich., arrested a man accused of driving his lawnmower through a snowstorm while under the influence of alcohol.
Frank Kozumplik, 49, allegedly drove his lawnmower 2 miles down the center of a street so he could visit the nearest liquor store, The Muskegon (Mich.) Chronicle reported Tuesday.
Police said Kozumplik, whose blood alcohol content was allegedly 2.5 times
Michigan's 0.08 percent legal limit for operating a motor vehicle, told them the John Deere tractor was his only means to transport to the store, as his wife had driven their car to work, the Chronicle said.
Kozumplik purchased four bottles of wine at the store before he was pulled over by police on his way home.
Police confiscated the mower, the newspaper report said.
