(CBS/AP) OHIOVILLE, Pa. - If there was a crime called "mowing while intoxicated" a western Pennsylvania man might have been charged with it.

Police say they were responding to a 911 call reporting an "out of control male" when they encountered 44-year-old Mark Grove, of Ohioville, driving the tractor down the middle of a road Thursday afternoon.

Grove is accused of assaulting a police officer after he was arrested on a drunken-driving charge.

Police say a coffee mug sitting on the tractor contained beer and say Grove told them, "I'm drunk. Just take me home."

Instead, police arrested Grove. That's when they say he kicked an officer and head-butted a squad-car partition.
