Kennebunk man charged with driving drunk on lawn mower

The man allegedly used his riding lawn mower to make a beer run.

KENNEBUNK – A Maine man faces drunken driving charges after allegedly using his riding lawn mower to make a beer run.

Police say convenience store employees turned away 51-year-old Tony Caulder when he came to the store earlier this month because they thought he was drunk.

Officials tell WMTW-TV that the employees followed the Kennebunk man outside to make sure he wasn’t 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. Nobody answered at a phone listed in Caulder’s name.
