Arrest Follows Lawn Mower Drive

Clinton Public Safety responded to Jefferson Street just before 6 last evening on a report of a man driving a lawn mower and striking two cars. One had a minor scratch, but neither owner wanted to prosecute. Officers observed the suspect driving the mower down the sidewalk on Elizabeth. Later he appeared unsteady on his feet when trying to walk. The 62-year-old local man was charged with Public Intoxication.
