BRISTOL, Vt. (AP) – Police say a man operating a lawnmower on a road in Bristol, Vermont, has been accused of driving under the influence of drugs.
The Burlington Free Press reports police say 67-year-old Claude Spaulding, of Bristol, was stopped Monday after they got a report that a man was driving the John Deere lawnmower down Route 116.
Police said Spaulding showed signs of impairment and screened for driving under the influence of drugs. A court date is pending results from the state forensic lab.
It wasn’t immediately known if Spaulding had a lawyer. A phone number rang unanswered Tuesday.
