“HUTCHINSON, Minn. — A Hutchinson man may be charged with drunken driving after apparently driving his lawnmower to a convenience store to buy gas and more alcohol. Authorities say witnesses say the 42-year-old appeared intoxicated when he bought beer Thursday at a Super America store. Witnesses also report the man stopped at one point, and urinated on the side of the road and tossed away an empty beer. After getting the report, police located the lawnmower in a nearby trailer park. While talking with neighbors, the man told police he was the one they were looking for. Police are seeking DWI and public urination charges against the man. It’s illegal in Minnesota to operate any motor vehicle under the influence. (Copyright 2009 by The Associated Press.

Is that not one of the funniest things you’ve read in awhile?! Where do these people come from? What on Earth possesses them to get drunk enough to think they can ride a lawnmower to the gas station to buy more booze?! Why not just walk? OMG I kind of laughed about it, but really it’s sad!
What’s scarier is that the town this took place in is where I work! I’ve gotten gas at the Super America where this yahoo went! The gas station is on a major highway that runs through town! Did this guy want to get arrested?! The more I think about it the funnier it seems to me only because no one got hurt from this bozo. It would be funny to see some drunk riding down the street on a lawnmower and pull up to a convenience store, but then the funniness would turn into WTF is this guy doing? I know you can get a DWI for anything here and that includes walking, but I can’t believe someone was dumb enough to do it! I mean, I can’t believe this is for real!
