Man hits police car with lawnmower, faces drunk driving charge

Criminal charges can result from a variety of situations, including those that seem a bit ridiculous. Of course, ridiculous-seeming or not, if an event warrants criminal allegations, it becomes one that should be taken seriously. For instance, if a person is charged for drunk driving on a lawnmower, he or she may find it useful to prepare for the pending legal proceedings.

As unlikely as that scenario may seem, it recently occurred in Florida. According to reports, a 68-year-old man was driving a riding lawnmower with a trailer attached when he collided with a parked police vehicle. The police officer was inside an establishment when he heard the collision and went outside to investigate. He then saw the man and the lawnmower.

The officer apparently suspected that the man was under the influence and conducted a field sobriety test as a result. The man reportedly did not pass the test, and he was subsequently taken into custody. He stated that he wanted to be taken to a hospital because he believed that the police had poisoned him. While there, it was reportedly determined that his blood alcohol concentration level was .241 and that there was cocaine in his system. He is currently facing charges for DUI.

Though this incident may seem unbelievable, the charges this Florida man faces are very real. As a result, he will undoubtedly want to make sure that he handles the drunk driving allegations to the best of his ability. Gaining information on the exact charges he faces as well as his available legal options may prove beneficial to him as his case proceeds.
