What do we say about lawns?

Think about yard care for a moment. While there may be people who certainly don't mind taking care of their own lawns, most people would also be quite happy to have someone else handle the work. Unless, of course, you've had a personal issue with the person who's decided to help before.

Oh yeah, and they show up on a riding lawn mower. Drunk.

That's right, folks. You know that it's a party in Maine when someone breaks out the mower and decides to cut their neighbors grass. And yes, the green-thumbed drinker was arrested for being a habitual offender, and for operating a vehicle with three prior arrests. We don't know if those previous arrests also came for driving a lawn mower while drunk, but we'd like to think so.

What would possess someone to mow someone else's yard while drunk? Did he really want crooked lines cut into the grass? Was he alternately raising and lowering the blade at random intervals? Did he just really want to smell freshly cut grass to go along with his buzz?

We may never know the answers to these questions, but we do think that there's at least a chance the man was trying to extend an olive branch. Or at least he would have been, if he hadn't cut it down.
