Sheriff: Man Drives Lawnmower Drunk, Kicks Deputy

EYOTA, Minn. (AP) -- A southeastern Minnesota man is accused of driving a riding lawnmower while intoxicated and kicking a sheriff's deputy.

Olmsted County Sheriff's Office says 26-year-old Tyler Lentz was arrested Saturday night in Eyota after law enforcement got a call about someone on a lawnmower who seemed to be impaired.

KTTC-TV reports sheriff's Capt. Scott Behrns says a sobriety test showed the man was well over the limit to drive. The man is accused of kicking a female sheriff's deputy in the arm and stealing lumber from Dollar General.
