ANTWERP TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A 36-year-old man has been arrested for driving drunk along a dark road on a lawn mower.

The Van Buren County sheriff’s office says Saturday that two deputies were on patrol about 9 p.m. Friday when they saw the mower on County Road 657 in Antwerp Township.

Flashlights were attached to the front of the mower, but there were no lights or reflective materials on the back. The driver also was pulling a home-made trailer.

The deputies stopped the mower. The Lawton man was jailed for operating a vehicle while intoxicated by alcohol.
