[MARION COUNTY] – A Florida Man faces DUI charges after a deputy caught him driving a lawnmower down a highway.
According to deputies, Paul Burke of Fort McCoy was spotted riding the lawnmower down highway 316 last Wednesday.
Dashcam video shows the Florida Man slurring his speech while talking to deputies, admitting he had been drinking.
Initially, he told deputies he had “a couple”, but later admitted, “I have had maybe a little too much to drink tonight.” He declined to perform a sobriety test, saying he can’t complete the exercises because he’s “been drinking too much”. He finally told the deputy, “just take me to jail”.
He was arrested on a DUI charge. [Original Article]
