Man Riding Lawn Mower At 3 A.M. Gets DUI Charge
DELHI TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- A man riding a lawn mower down the street at 3 a.m. has been charged with DUI, Cincinnati TV station WLWT reported.
Joseph Mundy told police he got the munchies, so he started out toward the Delhi Kroger store. He was riding down the street in the dark when an officer stopped him.
"He didn't have headlights, of course, and the officer almost hit him, and he thought it was stolen," said Delhi Township Cpl. Joe Macaluso. "But he ruled that out real quickly, and he realized the munchies got the best of him."
The officer called a tow truck for the mower.
"This is the most bizarre call I've ever had," said Joe Elliott, of Schaffer's Towing. "It was something you'd see on 'COPS,' but not something you go out and do."
This was Mundy's first DUI.
He could be sentenced to three days in jail.
