Man gets DUI on lawn mower

Colorado resident Kenneth Welton was recently arrested for DUI while driving his lawn mower to the bar! Local police officers pulled him over after they realized he was driving his lawn mower on one of the busy Garden City roads, and after receiving multiple calls from concerned drivers. It was reported when Mr. Welton was questioned, he showed signs of intoxication and did not have his driver’s license on his person. Kenneth Welton denied accusations that he had been bar hopping with his lawn mower, and told officers he was mowing the weeds alongside the road.

Welton, while in jail, told a television reporter that he was only doing some gardening when the cops accused him of being drunk!

“He couldn’t stand on his own. He was showing signs of impairment,” Weld County Sheriff’s Sgt. Sean Standridge stated of Mr. Welton. “He’s lucky he didn’t hurt somebody or get himself hurt from somebody hitting him,” Standridge continued.

When Welton was questioned from jail about driving his lawn mower intoxicated he said, “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.”
