When an observant police patrol man in the town of Citra, Florida, spotted a 68-year-old man driving a lawnmower in the wrong lane of a residential street, he pulled him over for questioning and observation.
The man's eyes were seen to be bloodshot, he smelt of alcohol, and a cold beer was seen to be sitting in the lawnmower's cup holder.
Further investigation revealed that he had ridden the lawnmower two and a half miles from a convenience store where he has bought an 18-pack of beer.
The man said he was depressed and he used to drink a 12-pack every day but had not touched a drop for the past two years.
