Mowing the law on a hot summer day is close to being an American pastime.
I remember as a child being awaken by the sound of lawn mowers going on
a Saturday morning. Thinking back I also remember seeing the men with
a beer nearby to quench their thirst. While I do not mow the lawn at my
house I doubt I could do so without knowing that I would be treated to
a cold one after I finished mowing my lawn.
Apparently, James Dennis had one too many and decided to take his lawn
mower for a ride. While driving his lawn mower down a Missouri highway
he was stopped by the police and eventually arrested for the misdemeanor of
DWI in his lawn mower. Incredibly, the police chief said that this was not the first time that
he had arrested someone for driving while intoxicated in a lawn mower.
