[Ed. – A public-spirited drunk, at least.]
A Franklin man was arrested and charged with operating while intoxicated on Saturday— but he wasn’t behind the wheel of a car.
Officers pulled over 46-year-old Barry Ridge while he was driving down County Road 100 North on a red lawn mower, according to the Johnson County Sheriff’s department.
The Franklin Police Department received a complaint just after 5 p.m. from someone upset that Ridge had driven onto their yard and started mowing the grass. Ridge then headed down the road toward Franklin.
