MINNEAPOLIS -- A driver was arrested after taking a front-end loader out onto the streets over the weekend in Chisago County, CBS Minnesota reports.

According to the county sheriff's office, the driver took the piece of equipment out and was arrested at 1 a.m. Sunday.

Authorities said the driver believed it was snowing out. The snow didn't begin to fall in Minnesota until more than 24 hours later.

Officers said they determined the driver was indeed intoxicated, and he was subsequently taken into custody.

He was not immediately identified.

On their Facebook page, the county sheriff's office posted this quote: "I don't always drive my front end loader to Stacy, but when I do, I am probably drunk."
