A Maine man has been charged with operating under the influence after he and a friend made a beer run on a riding lawn mower.
Police say 51-year-old Danforth Ross of Vassalboro was charged May 29.
Trooper Joe Chretien had been flagged down by several motorists warning of a wayward mower and made the arrest after Ross and his friend emerged from a variety store with two cases of beer.
Ross' driver's license had been revoked, so the pair opted for the lawn mower.
Ross couldn't be reached for comment.
