Police in Colorado claim 53-year-old Kenneth Welton used a lawnmower as his mode of transportation for a recent night on the town gone awry.
Police were alerted by concerned citizens who reported Welton was aboard a lawnmower going the wrong direction down a busy road in Garden City, Colorado.
According to this CBS4 report, Weld County Sheriff’s Sgt. Sean Standridge says that when police confronted Welton, he was unable to stand on his own and showed other signs of impairment.
Welton, interviewed by a news reporter while in jail, disputed the charges. He claimed he was using the lawnmower to trim weeds, not for bar-hopping. Welton was shocked by the DUI charge.
KOAA reports that Welton is a repeat traffic offender and his driver’s license had already been revoked at the time of the alleged lawnmower DUI.
It is not know if Welton has obtained legal representation.
