Man accused of driving under influence on lawnmower

BRISTOL, Vt. (AP) — Police say a man operating a lawnmower on a road in Vermont has been accused of driving under the influence of drugs.

The Burlington Free Press reports police say 67-year-old Claude Spaulding, of Bristol, was stopped Monday after they got a report that a man was driving the John Deere lawnmower down the town’s main thoroughfare.

Police say Spaulding showed signs of impairment and screened for driving under the influence of drugs. A court date is pending results from the state forensic lab.

It wasn’t immediately known if Spaulding had a lawyer. A phone number rang unanswered Tuesday.
