“Even though it’s a lawnmower, it’s a motor vehicle.”
Scott E. McKenzie was arrested for a DWI on a lawnmower in Oakfield, NY this past Tuesday night.
McKenzie had driven the lawnmower over to a neighbor’s house to mow their lawn. He then had a couple of drinks with the neighbor and later got back behind the wheel.
On his ride home, police noticed him driving on the shoulder of the road. McKenzie was charged with driving while intoxicated as well as possession of marijuana.
McKenzie was featured in the local news for this incident where he apologized for his mistake and promised that he would get help for his problem. (You can watch the video here.)
Remember, it is possible to get a DWI on any vehicle that isn’t a car. You can get a DWI on a golf cart, bicycle, boat, and, in some states, even a horse.
No matter what vehicle you operate, all DWI arrests warrant the need of a skilled defense attorney. A DUI attorney can look over the details of your case and help you navigate the complex court system.
