[url=http://www.crimelibrary.com/news/ap/1007/0402_outrun_law_lawnmower.html]W.Va. Man Flees Police on Lawnmower
[/url]

A man accused of drunken driving tried to outrun the police but his vehicle wasn't up to the task.

Michael Ginevan of Bunker Hill was driving a riding lawnmower on Runnymeade Road about a mile from his home when a Berkeley County sheriff's deputy attempted to pull him over. Ginevan, 39, allegedly sped away and Deputy J.H. Jenkins stopped his cruiser and gave chase on foot, according to magistrate court records.

Jenkins caught up to the lawnmower after a short chase but Ginevan allegedly wouldn't stop so the deputy pulled him off the machine. Ginevan refused to take a field sobriety test and was arrested. Jenkins then found a case of beer strapped to the lawnmower's front, court records show.

Several years ago when I was driving home from work, I'd often see a woman on a lawnmower, riding along the side of the road. Turned out she'd had her license revoked and her mower was the only way she had of getting around! :!:

Give me that ol' 'can do' spirit!

I am still picturing that guy being chased by a policeman on foot, with his supply of his drug of choice. In my mind he looks like Rush Limbaugh.
