MANKATO, Minn. — A Minnesota man is accused of his ninth drunken driving charge after police say they found him driving his riding lawnmower erratically on the streets of Madison Lake.

Authorities say the 60-year-old man tested 0.28 and 0.27 on Breathalyzer tests after he was pulled over July 20. He was charged this week with gross misdemeanor driving while intoxicated and driving after license revocation.

The Free Press reports a criminal complaint says the man has eight prior DWI-related convictions.
