JACKSON, Mo. (AP) - A man accused of racing a riding lawn mower while drunk has been charged with a felony.

Thirty-five-year-old Jeremy Tyson Cook, of Jackson, is free on bond after he was charged over the weekend with felony driving while intoxicated as a chronic offender. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.

The Southeast Missourian (https://bit.ly/1UjzzRI) reports that Cook tested positive for alcohol after two riding mowers crashed. The probable cause statement says the drivers reported the crash happened when one of the mowers they were racing stopped working and they attempted to move it.

The statement says Cook’s driving status was revoked in December 2006, one month after he pleaded guilty to drunken driving. He also was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in a fatal 2000 crash.
