Charges of DUI number four have been filed against Patrick Moore of Murfreesboro. The arrest was made just after 3PM on Wednesday. What makes this case so unusual, Moore was not driving a car. In fact, he was said to be driving a red lawn mower.
Police spotted 48-year old Moore at the Battle Avenue / Bridge Avenue intersection. The report states, “The subject appeared to be unsteady, bobbing back and forth while seated on the lawnmower.” Upon making an official traffic stop, police deemed that Moore was too intoxicated to be driving a motor vehicle, which was a lawnmower in this case. Moore was also charged with his second offense of “Driving on a Revoked License.”
The arrest report shows that he was driving an older model Murray mower, red in color.
