Man arrested for drink-driving on tractor

A 38-year-old man has been arrested in Des Moines, Iowa after being caught drink-driving on his tractor.

Robert Grimstad was picked up by officers at the crossing of 300th Street and Iowa Highway 17 near Madrid, the Des Moines Register reports.

Boone County Sheriff Ron Fehr admitted that he did not know how fast Grimstad was travelling without his lights on the six-speed Bolens lawn tractor.

“I don’t know. How fast can a lawn mower go?” he said.

Fehr added that is an offence to drive any vehicle anywhere while under the influence of alcohol. When tested, Grimstad’s blood-alcohol concentration was found to be .190.
