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.
Online court records don't list an attorney for 55-year-old Thomas Marrone, of Murrysville. He faces a preliminary hearing Tuesday on charges including driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license.
Murrysville police say they found 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 as he told them he was driving home — some 6.4 miles away.
Marrone didn't immediately return a call to his home phone Thursday.
