Man charged with driving drunk on lawn mower


A 51-year-old Maine man was charged with drunken driving, accused of driving a riding lawn mower from his home to a convenience store to buy beer. Police said Tony Caulder, of Kennebunk, was turned away by store employees when he tried to buy beer one afternoon this month because they thought he was drunk. Officials told WMTW-TV the employees followed Caulder outside to make sure he was not getting into a car and called police when he rode off on the lawn mower. Police charged him with operating under the influence after stopping him a short time later.
