AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) _ A Maine man fired up his lawnmower and went for a ride _ in the dead of winter _ leading to a drunken driving arrest, police said.

The Augusta Police Department posted a photo on Monday of two police cruisers pulling over a small riding lawnmower.

Edson Moody, 44, Augusta, was issued a summons and his tractor was towed away, said Deputy Police Chief Kevin Lully.

Police said people are occasionally arrested for operating under the influence on a lawn mower on a public road in the summer. But it's rare to find someone on a riding lawnmower in the winter.

It's unclear why Moody was headed during winter conditions. A phone number for Moody couldn't be located.
