MURRYSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A western Pennsylvania man has been charged with driving drunk while carrying an open can of beer — on a riding lawn mower.
Murrysville police say they found 55-year-old Thomas Marrone driving the mower along a road just before 1:30 a.m. Aug. 30.
Police say Marrone smelled of alcohol and had an open can of Coors Light beer in the mower's storage compartment. They say he told them he was driving to his Murrysville home — some 6.4 miles away.
Marrone didn't immediately return a phone message left at his home Thursday, and online court records don't list an attorney for him. He faces a preliminary hearing Tuesday on charges including driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license.
