A man driving a lawnmower along Highway 19E in Hampton has been arrested on a DUI charge.

Carter County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Nick Andes said at approximately 8:08 p.m. Monday he observed a white male on a black lawnmower traveling north on the southbound side of Highway 19E in Hampton.“This appeared very abnormal to me,” Andes said in a report.

The deputy said the subject drove the lawnmower across Gap Creek Road through heavy traffic and was almost struck by a vehicle. The officer then stopped the lawnmower at the intersection of 19E and Gap Creek Road.(maybe if he had been traveling south in the southbound lane he would have gone unnoticed and everything would have been normal to the cop or if only he would have been on his cub cadet instead of his snapper he could have gotten away)
