Report: Lawn mower driver busted for DUI

ames David Gray, 68, allegedly said he has "a bad drinking problem," reports The Gainesville Sun. On his way home from cutting grass, the Citra man bought an 18-pack of Natural Ice because he was hot and also depressed over his meager wages — then he began driving south in a northbound lane, where he was spotted by a deputy, according to the report. Gray said that when the deputy stopped him he had only four beers left — and an opened cold beer inside the lawn mower's cup holder, according to the report. Get the DUHtails at The Gainesville Sun.
