A man was arrested for drunk driving after reportedly deciding to go bar hopping on a lawn mower.

Kenneth Welton, 53, from North Colorado, was detained after he was spotted cruising along in the grass trimming machine on a busy road last Tuesday.

‘He’s lucky he didn’t hurt somebody or get himself hurt from somebody hitting him,’ said Sergeant Sean Standridge, from the Weld County Sheriff’s department.

He added: ‘He couldn’t stand on his own. He was showing signs of impairment.’

Welton, who was driving without a valid licence, said he had not been going from bar to bar and was actually mowing weeds when he was stopped.

‘It was just surprising, it was just a total shock. What are you kidding me?,’ he added, while speaking from jail.

‘I haven’t been, I’ve been working, I have been mowing, I haven’t been bar hopping.’
