TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - It’s not unusual for officers to pull over suspected drunken drivers on the highways of Kansas, but it is fairly rare to find the suspected drunken driver on a major thoroughfare driving a riding lawnmower.

That’s what Shawnee County Sheriff’s deputies say they encountered Wednesday afternoon when they spotted a man driving a lawnmower on the southbound shoulder of U.S. Highway 75 near Topeka, television station KSNT reported.

The 25-year-old man was stopped and arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after he failed a field sobriety test, officials said.
