At least he wasn’t driving on the road?
Bloomfield Township — Pull it over, blade runner.
Authorities have arraigned a 47-year-old township man with felony drunken driving after police stopped him while he was cruising on a riding lawn mower.
Authorities say Roy Walton was allegedly intoxicated while riding his mower on a sidewalk in front of a Rite Aid on March 22.
The arresting officers were on routine patrol when they noticed the mower parked outside of the store, located at Woodward Avenue and Square Lake Road, at about 9:50 p.m.
Police waited and watched as Walton left the store, powered up the mower and rolled away.
After stopping Walton, police determined he was intoxicated, arrested him and impounded the mower. According to police, Walton was charged with a felony because of prior drunken driving convictions.
Walton was released on a $25,000 personal bond.
The case is under review by the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office.
